Put yourself out there to make friends -Super BrilliantNeuroscience/Cognitive Science
Put yourself out there to make friends - join clubs, everyone is just as scared as you are to meet people. Talk to your professors. DePaul is great because of its small class sizes and helpful professors - they want you to succeed so go to their office hours. There are internships and study abroad opportunities galore so apply for them!

Question
DePaul 101:Super BrilliantCommunications
DePaul 101:

I went there some time ago, but remember it as being a rather frustrating experience.
- After being in college longer than most (due to a car accident I had to take time off), 1 semester away from graduating, they added additional requirements for me to complete me degree. I had to pay EVEN MORE TUITION and stay even LONGER. I recently brought this up to admissions, their reply? "Well, it's ok because other colleges do it". At the time, it completely crippled me.

- Totally unhelpful staff for looking for a job post-undergrad. The counselor I was assigned to literally printed me jobs off of Monster. Pathetic - especially for their steep tuition.- Go to DePaul if you want to be treated like you are in highschool!! Small classes - very small. Super strict instructors. You can only miss a few classes per semester - not a typical college experience.

Question
School of edacution is TERRIBLE.Not so brightEducation
School of edacution is TERRIBLE. Professors use intimidation tactics to gain compliance of students. Very poor offerings. All demand and take and NO give. There are so many good univerisies, especially in a city like Chicago, do yourself a BIG favor and go somewhere that will offer a bright education and future instead of dark demands.
