The University of Utah is a great school. Honestly, I was scared I wouldn’t get in because I didn’t see myself as smart as my relatives who attended the U. After my first semester, I realized that I was just as capable as anyone else. I have had to work very hard to do well in my classes, but it has paid off. Based on my experience, I would say the type of student who should attend the University of Utah is someone who is willing to put forth effort and work hard. Dedication to your education is crucial in order to be successful. I don’t believe it matters how “smart” one perceives themselves. More importantly, it’s necessary to believe in yourself and realize that you have the potential to be great. That’s what makes for a truly successful college student. I have learned that from my past semester at the University of Utah, and I hope that any future students would know that all the best way to prepare for college at the U is to start believing more in yourself.
