Heyy, i took two gap years after high school and on march i'm coming back to school. I somehow got into the best physics program in my country (i'm not from the us) but i'm fucking nervous. I really like it but was never a genius, and with two years without properly studying (i did a bit on my own but not the same) i don't know how to approach it. Do you know how i could start to prepare myself now, or how to study when i start classes? Thank you!
Hey. My general advice for freshmen is always to start doing assignments and exercises right away. Try not to fall behind on your work when you start from the basics. When you get a hand of it, the rest will follow more naturally. Working hard is far more valuable than being a genius (and if you ask my opinion, geniuses don’t exist anyway). Don’t be discouraged if you fuck up a little in the beginning. Happens to all.
