As far as professors; they are not really inviting you home and have close relationship with students...it is a myth and dishonest to say this....professors are busy with their own children and life and do not even have enough office hours; imagin how they can help you.... the helpers are students tutors who are on workstudy pay and do not know the subject they try to tutor !
Advisors gand advise new students. They do not care what you can and want to take...they just give you a course list. You either make it or you fail ! then they say ohhhh you have to change your fields of study..
Bottom line, W&J advertises Pre-Med rate of 90%. Gets 390 students in; screens 30 to to to pre-med and pressures the rest to switch to teaching, business, etc.......this is how they make money and gather students.... they sell medical school hope and you end it up a teacher !
You tell me "Is it worth $48K per year to pay to this colleges for 4 years to become a teacher !!!"
Very DISHONEST COLLEGE
IT IS A SHAME
I highly recommand parents and students DO NOT get tricked by their statics for premed or admission tricks..because they have thier own agenda to collect students and fill their departments...
As far as courses and professors; they are very small and cannot offer ontime and enough courses; but offer few in each area to keep it going...
Most of famous Alumni of this college graduated from W&J when the year was 1800 and only a handful of colleges in the US were in operation...so Washington or Jefferson used to be one of the few in the nation and hence they were one of few and those who attended did well then (in 1800)...but after 1900 and in the year 2000, this colleges looks like a rural high school...
DO NOT WASTE YOUR $48K......
We made a mistake and fixed it; you do not fall in their marketing trap please.Good luck
