2. Don’t room with your high school frenemy.
While it worked for Paris and Rory, I’m pretty sure it wouldn’t work out in the real, non Amy Sherman-Palladino created world. Take the risk and room with someone you don’t know - that could lead to an actual friend than frenemy.
3. Study AND join a variety of clubs.
I’m sure Rory got amazing grades (except on that final she never finished), but she was only ever on the Yale Daily News. Get out there and explore - join that outdoor club even if you’ve never gone hiking before.
5. If you live close to home, don’t visit that much.
I was lucky enough to live only two hours away from home when I was in college. But, I didn’t visit home every weekend like Rory did. It’s good to get some distance and learn some independence - you’ll need it once you graduate.
7. Try not to judge too harshly if your friend starts a fling with a professor.
It happens. Really it does. And if it’s not a professor, it might be someone you don’t approve of and you should at LEAST give them a chance. Unless they are like a murderer or something, then please get your friend away from them ASAP.
10. DO spring break.
Whether it means going back home and having your parents feed you for a week or going to Cabo and partying every night, just do something during spring break! And if you decide to really party, Lorelai Gilmore would approve and be ready to offer you baby’s first hangover food - mac and cheese.
