If I had the chance to start over, I would absolutely come to Rose again. Rose is really frustrating at times, especially at the beginning of freshman year. When I started my freshman year, I thought I was too "smart" to study. Well, I didn't study and I got a 0% on my first quiz in Physics I. The average was 20% in the class, so I'm thinking most people had the same attitude as I did about the quiz.
Needless to say, you WILL have to study at Rose. I started working hard after that (studying about four hours a day--this seems like nothing compared to sophomore year haha), and I still managed to get an A in the class. You will have to work hard, but Rose is so small that you become good friends with your entire residence hall and even your professors, and most people are actually happy a majority of the time at least haha. A lot of people talk about how hard Rose is because all they do is study, but in reality people would not stay up so late if they would stay off of facebook and focus. I stay off facebook and I usually get about seven hours of sleep.
