Advice for new students: I’d say trust your intuition. Be open to learn and absorb information from others and then use it to make decisions for yourself. Try not to make decisions soley based on what others think your life should be. At the end of the day, you know what’s right and what makes you happy. You’re accountable for the effects of the decisions you make, not anybody else, so trust yourself to make the right ones. There will be people along the way to help. It’s a lot of responsibility and can be frightening, but there is a freedom to it.
