Once you reach certain level of test scores and grades, the playing field becomes equal for everyone. Try to be a well-rounded student and explore your interests in depth in high school and college. Have endurance! Look towards a larger goal to motivate you and make the most of your time in high school. Choose university based on where you would be the most comfortable and most happy. No matter what university you go to, you can take initiative and thrive. In your first semester of college, don’t overexert yourself. Take time to explore the university, get to know your professors, and develop a community so you can pursue what you want in the future.
