    Also make sure you use ratemyprofessors.com
    You'll probably have TAs your first year since you'll be taking freshmen level classes, but once you move up to 200, 300, 400 level classes you should get more time with an actual professor. Just talk to upperclassmen as much as you can about each professor you're taking.

    i would just advise you to study all the time and don't fall behind in any of your classes. its best to get tight with some classmates that you can occasionally work/cheat with and try to find out how easy/tough your classes might be according to what professor you choose before signing up for classes. if you don't understand some material ask for help or go see a tutor. go to ratemyprofessors.com and see what other students at your school have rated professors at your school. i highly recommend that site before signing up for classes.

    ratemyprofessor is a godsend. Seriously, look into each professor you plan on taking.

    Sorry reaper, I usually agree with you but would have to say dextroamphetamine is a helluva substitute. Got put on that by my physician for a week until seeing a psychologist, hell of a study aid, I could concentrate on schoolwork for hours upon hours. It actually seemed to "interest" me into studying and would not bore me like it normally did. Don't take it anymore though.

    Surprisingly i've been able to maintain over a 3.5 cumulative GPA going into Junior year with minimal studying. I have the phenomenon of being able to be focused on things that interest me for hours upon hours but can't read for 5 minutes in a textbook without loosing focus... it's frustrating.

    Good luck tex, and if you have any comp sci, or criminal justice questions don't hesitate to PM me, we are starting classes in about 3 weeks.

    provigil (modanifil) works best for me- it is a non-stim anti-adhd medication- it allows you to focus for hours on end. it also has some other added benefits- it will take your workouts to a whole other level as well....I just wrote a 1,200 page SOI for our MFG. facility and a 3,000 page validation master plan over the course of 12 weeks- I can literally block out pretty much all distractions while I am taking it

    I think the SOIs and VMF can serve very well as a sleep aid- you can start reading this stuff and completely glaze over in less than 10 minutes- pretty boring stuff
