It will be like no experience you have ever had, you can prepare and you will think you did all the prep work necessary but once you start standing in the halls you will feel in over your head. EMBRACE IT! It is an experience like no other, have the time of your life and remember if at first you don’t succeed, who cares? Give it another shot!
