I would say that I would definitely work hardFeb 02 2015Psychology
I would say that I would definitely work hard in your math classes and try as hard as possible to remember because teachers expect that you know a lot from high school. If you go a semester without school, it's hard.
I used transfer credits to get inFeb 01 2015Other
I used transfer credits to get in. Acceptance does not seem to be an arduous process. The Common App makes it easy.
