    Sit in on a class for your prospective major. Maybe even more than one. It can give you an idea of what the classes that you'll be taking will be like and if WashU is right for you. Just because you're at the top of your class now, does not mean you will be at WashU. Take it from someone who didn't get a B till college. You'll be moving from a big fish in a small pond to a just another big fish in a sea of big fish and that can be intimidating. Most importantly ask for help if you need it. WashU has lots of great mentoring and tutoring services that are available to help you succeed.

    Look carefully at what you want to do and the reasons you want to do it. If you seek a top-notch education to be able to explore your deep, personal passions and interests, Wash U is for you. If you're just looking for a degree, which there's nothing wrong with, you can get the same thing at other institutions for a much cheaper price in most fields. Wash U is hard, so be prepared to take on a heavier workload, especially if you come from a laid back, non-competitive high school like I did. However, you'll walk away feeling like you truly learned something, and the feeling of accomplishment is amazing.
