    I’m not in the group chat as of now. It would be awesome to interact with my future classmates!

    I don't see a lot of value in a group chat with others who also haven't yet experienced Beast. Most likely you will get several who brag (or exaggerate) their skills/abilities and you have no way to know if they are accurate. Not sure how that would be of any value to the concerns the OP is asking about and more likely would produce anxiety when others boast about their skills. Personally, I would approach this as you would any varsity competition. Most likely people are all nervous, but being prepared & physically fit is advice that would apply to everyone. When taking a final exam, you might also have been nervous, but being prepared/keeping up with the material....etc. are also ways to deal with this.

    I’ll tell my DS to log on here and message you so you can be added. He hasn’t mentioned people boasting a lot but I don’t think he’d take that seriously anyway. He’s really enjoyed getting to know class mates ahead of time and I think you will too!

    Thank you, this is reassuring. I guess I just need to be confident that I'm going to come out a better person.

    Yeah, I will definitely have to be skeptical. Nevertheless, I can't wait to meet my future classmates.

    The worst they can really do is make you do push ups or yell in your face for a couple minutes. Just relax. If you ever feel tired look at other people’s faces, I found that their exprsssions looked funny. Find small things to brighten your day.

    There will be people who are great athletically or memorize the knowledge book super fast. Don’t compare yourself. Just keep going at your own pace and putting forth effort.

    Two rules.
    1. Don't sweat the small stuff
    2. Everything is small stuff

    Summary. Don't stress out over things you have no control over. Relax and enjoy what's left of the summer.
