    Here’s some advice for incoming students:

    1. You’ll be required to talk to a councilor to plan your classes for the semester. Make sure you get a student handbook and a college catalog, and IGNORE EVERYTHING YOUR COUNCILOR TOLD YOU. Look at the handbook and look at the catalog and plan, plan, plan your degree. Complaint #1 from students I know that attend DSC is that the councilors led them astray, they took classes they didn’t need, etc. Police your own degree.

    2. Never, ever take the max in financial aid. You can’t declare bankruptcy away from student loans. Only take what you need, and if you have to work and live with your parents until you finish your degree DO THAT. I know it might seem lame, but being lame for two years is way better than spending $300 a month paying off student loans for the next 15 years. Do yourself a favor.

    Good luck!
