Mm. Jeepers, a funny word. Anyways, I've been researching a number of colleges on my college list. A lot reviews from top reviewers such as Princeton, Pearson, etc. use interviews or questions from students on campus. This is basically why I'm afraid of college, at this point. All of the college I have in mind are elite if not semi-elite colleges. Studying is essentially to surviving and succeeding. Every student that answers these questions about the difficulty of the college (namely the sciences; engineering for me) always say that "this college is very hard. You won't get a lot of sleep. You don't know the meaning of studying 24/7 until you've gone here." I'm attending a pretty prestigious (in my opinion) school. Subjects are taught by great teachers (with the exception of some crappy ones), and the pace is pretty fast. (Our school uses a 2 semester block scheduling system. Two different days each with 4 different classes resulting with longer classes, but fewer classes held each day in comparison to the traditional 6 class day). Because of my school's close integration to college, a lot of alumns (at least I think) say that college has been much easier than if they went to some random, normal school. Am I just overreacting to these student replies of these elite colleges or am I right in worrying about how difficult college may be?
