My experience with Wayne State University has overallBrightEconomics
My experience with Wayne State University has overall been a huge disappointment. The Welcome Center feels like you are at court waiting to pay a ticket or something. The university is very selective about the financial aid they give out but will raise the tuition very quickly each semester. The student life is very dead, but that is for the simple fact that this is more of a commuter campus than a welcoming university. There is an undertone of racism on campus between the students of different cultures. As far as the Economics department goes, I think some of the courses are good but they are more theoretical than quantitative. The math requirements are too low (MAT 1500 is all you need) and there are no courses that focuses in on statistical methods or courses that uses SQL, SAS, Ruby, etc. You can find those courses in different departments (Computer Science mainly), but I feel that it is really important to know these things for the corporate world. All in all, I feel that I was maliciously under prepared to go into the job market after graduating Wayne State University. I will not be going back from professional school.

DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOLQuite BrightCommunications
It is a waste of time and money...this is the most disappointing experience ever. You are better off going to a Community College, where the professors most likely teach at U of M also and actually care about their students.Wayne State is a machine that eats peoples souls and hires unprofessional, low-quality staff.

The entire administration is faulty.Quite BrightUndecided
The entire administration is faulty. It is nearly impossible to meet with an advisor and they rarely provide real services. Counseling services are shoddy, but free. There is always some sort of technological problem and I have been locked out of my university email almost the entire semester. Very poor system maintenance. High crime rates, particularly robbery. Most of your text books are "Wayne State edition," so expect to be charged extra and pay the maximum price due to not being able to buy required texts from outside sources. This school has such a reputation for over-charging and hidden fees that students call it getting Wayne State-d. This school is very full of itself and does not live up to expectations. I wouldn't recommend this overcrowded mess to anyone.
