Running a lot would definitely help, I know even though I ran a good amount before going to school, I still felt like I could have been in better running shape. The first few weeks are pretty hectic getting to know everyone and figure out class schedule along with going to PT and whatnot. I was issued everything that the upperclassmen had almost right away when I got to school, even before I was contracted. I would just prepare yourself by making sure you are mentally ready for the early mornings for PT, and that you are physically ready for the actual PT itself. You'll figure everything else out with time.
