Easy as can be.BrightOther
Easy as can be. I am no Einstein but I made mostly As. One warning: no matter how friendly your profs may seem, THEY ARE NOT YOUR FRIENDS. Almost anything you tell a prof is reported to the Dean of Students. So don't kid around. Tell them that your parents graduated from Harvard and Cornell and serve on the Board of Directors. It will all come back to you. You won't see the record but your profs will and so will potential employers.Show a little leg in class. They love it.

I loved this question.Other
I loved this question... "How well prepared were you for "the workworld" and your current field?"
Many of my fellow students were super-lazy just like my coworkers. Not too smart either.
And this one: "was what you gained from college more informational or character building?"
Yeah. This was a real character building experience. I learned to deal with a not-so-good manager from not-so-good teachers.

The campus is beautiful. I often use the library because I can always find a book I want and generally, there aren't many students there. Even during the day. (I work night shift).

One piece of advice. No matter how good your rapport with your teachers may be, they are NOT your friends. For your own sake, tell them that your father is a congressman or a bank manager. For all the blather about white privilege, they seem to be more impressed with your privileged background (especially if you are an out-of-stater). I was neither.One more thing. It's easy to get on the dean's list. Tho I worked hard, some who didn't got on the dean's list.

If you are an average or a littleQuite BrightOther
If you are an average or a little below average scholastically, this university might be for you.I expected a much better college experience. There is little to do on or near campus. You can take the train or a bus to :uptown" but there isn't much there to attract me. I'm not 21 yet, so I can't get into the bars. The library is pretty good. Every book I needed was always available.

The upper floors are where some students do things that they shouldn't do.I still don't know who my advisor is.
