“Undergrad Review”
December 2017FORMER STUDENT
Uppers

smaller classroom size -- 1:30 professor to student ratio which allows for more interaction

diverse students -- so many smart and talented students from around the world to learn from

intelligent professors -- it amazed me how each and every professor was a leader in their field and how much they accomplished throughout their career

Downers

parking lots where always packed

food options could improve, though they started removing the unhealthy choices

Comments

Reach out to someone on LinkedIn who attended the program you're interested in. Talk to a counselor and schedule a school visit.
