Clarkson University - Comments and Student Experiences|
When I was accepted, Clarkson gave me a pretty good financial aid package...it was very generous. I was so excited because finally I got enough money to go to what I thought was going to be a great school. Well, first semester went rough, although somehow I managed to pull a 3.5 GPA out of the sky. I felt so discouraged because in highschool I worked hard just like how I worked here, and I graduated 10th in my class and with a GPA of a 4.0...
The work load here is absolutely RIDICULOUS. If you come here, freshman year first semester you can 100% guarantee that you will be put in some sort of English class (lets hope to god its not Professor Ettinger) and every english class has to write at least two 4-page essays a month and thats not even counting the hundreds of pages in books that youre going to have to read and then get tested on all of it.
Just to sum everything up: DO NOT COME TO THIS COLLEGE. Please listen to me.. I WOULD KNOW.
