So I think one of the most important things to talk about when it comes to choosing schools is also the work balance and how you also want to live your life being independent from your parents for the first time. Um, it's a big step, and you want to make sure that you can also handle any sort of academic Wait, that's put on you as well, which is super important when choosing a school. Because you want to make sure that not only do you understand what's expected of you, but people in your department understand what you are able to do for them. So work and life here and why you is quite balanced. I know lots of people who have amazing times outside of class as wells. Um, just because there really is so much to be offered here. So I think some of the most important lessons that I learned my first year here was making sure that you kept on track of all of your homework. Um, but yeah, as long as you know what you have to do, you can cut out time in your schedule that you can actually go and do it. Um, but you really just want to be aware of everything that's going on around you because it's New York. So making sure that you're on top of all that is probably number one priority for howto make your life the best it can be here. Um, I think the teachers are also super helpful and understanding. You know, when when their big projects or finals or mid terms, they will be there, they will have study sessions for you. They'll make sure that you feel comfortable, completely prepared for all the work that you have to do because they want you to succeed as well. Um, I think also being from Tish that ads in a separate element, I might not have a CZ many classes where I have a midterm, but I have scenes that I have to memorize or a play that I am a part of and have to go and work on five days a week for four hours every night. It's just important to remember that no matter what, you can handle it and, you know, knowing your limits as well. So if you do actually want to take a step back and say, Oh, I'm just going to enjoy this semester like maybe last extracurricular so I could focus on homework, and then I can focus on being able to relax. Um, you just you've got to be aware of yourself, and you've got to know that you're here in this big city, um, and that there are a lot of things that you're going to be able to dio um, but I hope you get to come, and I hope that you get to experience all of them.
