One piece of advice for accepted students: Put a system in place for yourself from the beginning. You likely know best how you learn, study, and practice the application of material. Use what you already know about yourself, and make adjustments only as needed in order to accommodate a more challenging workload. Just because another student is successful doing something completely different than you, does not mean you won’t be. You know yourself best, so stick to what works for you!
One fun fact about yourself: I used to want to open my own bakery – I really enjoy cake and cupcake decorating and will find any excuse to bake!
