If you go to W&J and take full advantage of all of the resources available to you, you will be successful. I have had friends transfer both to and from state schools and all remark at how difficult W&J is. There really is no easy or blow-off class. I've tried to take one on numerous occasions and once my "blow-off" class turned out to be harder than all of my other classes. If you go here and work hard you will succeed. W&J gives you opportunities and a solid education. Even with lots and lots of scholarship money it is expensive. I'm just hoping that in the end the benefits will outweigh the costs.

The school as a whole has a wonderful reputation, but it is not all it's cracked up to be. If you're pre-med, the program is amazing, but don't count on your rising tuition, a minimum $43,000 a year to get you a seat in a medical school. I have friends with high gpas (3.5+) that are not ending up where they had planned.

I joined Greek Life seeing as it is a residential campus and half the school goes Greek. It's alright. You're filled with the sterotypes which end up proving to be mostly accurate.

Campus security is reasonable with students, and the police really don't bother you except for major issues.

Having the projects near by and "townies" and unsafe individuals break into the buildings, not the best.It's a good school, but NOT work the 43,000 a year. I find myself taking pointless classes when I can't do basic functions, like Excel spreadsheets that I will need in the work force. You leave here with more knowledge than most schools would give you in your field, but as for basic work knowledge, go to Cal U or a community college and take some basics.
