What advice do you have for Harvard undergraduates, now that you’ve graduated?
Always have a (rough!) plan, but always be open to adapting or changing that plan. By articulating your hopes and goals for the next semester or the next year, you’re one step closer to achieving them. Attend professors’ office hours early in the semester and get to know at least 1-2 tutors in your House well – they have an incredibly helpful perspective on life. Don’t ‘overconcentrate’ unless you really want to – instead, take electives across disciplines that might help you test out interests that could branch into exciting career paths. Follow the free food!
