My biggest piece of advice is to start thinking about eating clubs and the bicker process early on. Certain student groups (frats/sororities, atheltic teams, performance groups, newspaper, etc.) feed into certain clubs, so if you know that you like Ivy for example, it's probably best to join an activity like certain frats or sororites, the crew team, or certain singing/dance groups that feed in. Otherwise it will be hard to get into that club if you're "unaffiliated." Try to meet as many upperclassmen in your club of choice early on, but it's best if they're in your activity because they'll be more likely to speak for you.

Academically, if you have a preceptor who doesn't speak English, switch into a different section!! And do your problem sets and outlines with friends because it's much easier than attempting on your own. Go to office hours for extra help.

Lastly, make sure you go out and have fun!! Many of my friends stopped going out to the Street after sophomore year, and missed out on a lot of fun. Even if it's midterms week, I'm sure you could spare an hour or two.
responseI completely agree that you should start thinking about eating clubs and the bicker process early on--preferably, before you are conceived. If at all possible, arrange to be conceived and raised by the "right" kind of people--good genes, good family background, good professional connections, and good income. Proper attention to this pre-conception phase of the process will really increase your odds of making it in to the Ivy Club.
