I always see advice like "talk with the current students in the major" and "sit in on some classes" to get to know a school/ major etc.
However, how could I get to know the current students in the major and their contacts? I have some ideas but not sure! And won't some classes which involve student participation (e.g. class attendance, labs etc) be hard to sit in? And how do you decide or know when to sit in?
Sorry if it sounds stupid! Thanks!
