Do not look for any social interaction, asQuite BrightComputer Engineering
Do not look for any social interaction, as the vast majority of students suffer from headphone syndrome. Teachers range from really great, to condescending not only towards students, but also the University. Lastly, you will never have contact with any academic adviser due to them avoiding constant emails, and supposed arranged appointment dates.

This school is neither bad nor good.BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
This school is neither bad nor good. To be honest I believe it receives a lot of unfair negativity. The teachers are great, and if you actually try and get to know them and go beyond that C or B in your grades and go off to the MBA program here, a lot of them end up with great jobs. However I would not think about coming here if you do not plan on going into Culinary, Business, or Hospitality

I transferred to JWU from a 2 yearQuite BrightSchool of Information
I transferred to JWU from a 2 year college for Network Engineering (as this was the only school offering Networking for undergraduate). After spending 3 years at another college, and completing some network related certifications (CCNA), i was admitted to JWU as a Sophomore, without proper assessment of the completed courses. I will have to attain the same courses that i already completed. Also, i will get my Bachelors after spending 5+ years in college and paying ridiculous amount of money.
