First, prioritize experiences over exams. Grades are important but memories are what matter in the end. Especially in terms of ASDA and other organizations’ events...connections are everything! Next, don’t worry about how anyone else is doing. As long as you’re getting through it, you’re golden. Comparing yourself to others isn’t supportive of your career and can only boost your ego or destroy your confidence, neither of which you should care to do. Finally, don’t be afraid to reach out to faculty or friends for help when you need it...in terms of school and mental health!
