The gap between high school and college is pretty obvious, especially in education method. As being an international student, when I was in high school, they have provided some classes that is especially designed for international students. Therefore we could have some time to get involve the United State’s education. After I graduated, I went to MSU for my university, which is a pretty huge university. In other words, I have to be more self motivated and independent on school, I could not expect anyone will help me automatically. I need to be more prepared before every class, unlike in high school, we would prepare “in class”. This gap is pretty annoyed, and it definitely need some time to get used to it, especially for international students.
