One piece of advice for accepted students: Do not be afraid to be wrong. While it is important to think critically and be prepared, no one has the correct answer all the time. Your professors and fellow students will understand if you do not grasp a concept as soon as it is presented to you. If you get an answer wrong, view it as a valuable learning experience!
