Question
I went to Polytechnic for four years.BrightElectrical Engineering
I went to Polytechnic for four years. I started as an Electrical Engineering major and added Computer Engineering to my degree. I enjoyed my time at school for the first two years, but then I started having a lot of problems.

1. I had a full scholarship, which they denied they gave to me. So I had to argue to receive my full scholarship multiple times.

2. I dormed for all 4 years, and one year they tried to charge my roommate and myself for damages that were previously there.

3. I received the SMART grant in my junior year, which I should be able to use on any expenses related to school, but they lowered my scholarship and used the grant money to pay for my tuition. So I spent an extra $4000 that year.

4. Only one person in an administrative position is competent. I would call, email, and visit offices for three weeks before I got anything done. (nobody responds to emails and are never in their offices)

5. I applied to graduate school, but they never let me register.
(There are a lot more problems with the school. The administration has no respect for students, except that one person.)Some of the teachers are very nice and helpful, but some are pretty horrible. Some have no teaching skills and are unwilling to help students.
