Experiencing college life may have been difficult for students at first, but after six weeks many have become experts! They have survived their first midterm week and are currently studying for final exams and completing final papers. Because Precollege students have experienced college life for only six weeks, they may expect a seamless transition back to their high school curriculum, teachers, environment, expectations, etc. Some students, however, may experience a level of difficulty with this transition. 

Past Precollege students have found that many of their high school teachers encourage them to continue using the techniques they learned at NYU Precollege, while other teachers may want them to continue completing assignments as they did prior to Precollege. Students who are not encouraged to use new methods should not feel down! You may not be motivated to complete you assignments at first, but remember that your high school grades help you get into college. What you have learned during your college experience is still important and will be useful after you graduate from high school. You will have the opportunity to express all that you have learned when you write your personal statements for your college applications, and when you return to a college campus for class you will be prepared to hit the ground running!
