High school juniors and seniors: We hear you. Over the past few months, you've been overloaded with unsolicited college advice from parents, teachers, counselors, relatives and guidebooks. Although they seem to be (mostly) well-meaning, you may not be feeling like all the to-do lists and campus visits are giving you a behind-the-scenes glimpse into what you are actually getting yourself into after you graduate.
So, we've gone straight to the source to get you some answers: current college students at different schools across the country. We've partnered with unigo.com, a resource for thousands of undergrads, to field all your questions about university life and give you responses that are honest, unfiltered and totally up-to-date.
And here's your third question: "How often should I call home when I'm in college? Is once a week too much?"
Check out the slideshow below to watch three college students explain how often they and their roommates really check in with their parents -- and why nobody will think it's weird if you Skype with Mom every day.
