|Hi Hacker News, I'm going to college* in two weeks. I've read <http://paulgraham.com/college.html> and right now my two main goals are: get really good at hacking, and do well enough academically that grad school is an option.|
What's your advice for college freshmen, HN? "What do you wish you'd known?" I'm particularly interested in surprising, non-obvious things that I am unlikely to hear from others or think of myself.
* Olin College, for what it's worth.
