    This was my safety school since it has around a 50% acceptance rate. Let me tell you, it is not an easy school like I thought it was going to be. The school maintains very high academic standards and a great reputation for research despite the relatively high acceptance rate (and its reputation for partying). There are many opportunities here for the dedicated scholar-- and a lot of lit parties.

    The best tip that I can give to a prospective student is to try and find your niche on campus. Once you find your community, even a campus as big as UW- Madison can feel like home away from home.

    Do your best in high school, and don't blow off senior year! Take a lot of AP and honors classes to show that you are capable of performing well at the college level, and make sure to take the tests to get college credit. I am technically a sophomore even though it is my first year since I had so many AP credits, and this is a huge benefit in the long run since you will always be among the first to pick your classes! Also, never count yourself out and not apply just cause of GPA and ACT scores, take as many leadership roles as possible in clubs and activities and do service hours, in addition to spending a lot of time on essays. This will greatly increase your chances of admission!
