College is hard because no one tells you
College is hard because no one tells you how to study and you have to figure it out yourself, and while you don't know how to study you really struggle with inefficency. By the time you figure out how to study you have no time to study in your new way and have to study knowingly in low efficency. In high school you had more time, grades didn't matter as much. in college you get so many e-mails on how bad you are, so just delete those. unlike what's here, there is grade inflation >0 at jhu( for good reasons). if you every try to finish all your homework on a weekend, it's unlikely if you're an average student, if you try to start some new projects on the side on the weekend, it'll decrease your time to do other things. in college opportunity costs are more apparent. you're definitely burned out from hs and the people who do well tend to be the ones never burnt out from hs.

Question
It's easier than people say it is.BrightPublic Health
It's easier than people say it is. Still tough but social life is acutally quite lit over here and if you want to have a good time, this is the place. The thing is, here you can do whatever you want because peer pressure is less. It's practically an ivy thats better than upenn, brown, and dartmouth. Still, it's great for people who want a college experience but not a super crazy one (drunk for an entire week). it's for people who want to have great futures, especially in medicine.
