Tuition is overpriced.BrightComputer Science
Tuition is overpriced. The campus is terrible, the buildings are falling apart, and there isn't even enough housing for everyone. The only good option for housing is to get into the Grohmann Tower apartments. However, getting in is impossible, the application process is unclear, the actual deadlines are earlier than the information provided about them states. If you commute, you don't have to deal with the awful housing, but it does make working on group projects and engaging in campus life, impossible. The administration doesn't care about students. Many of the teachers are terrible. A lot of them grade things very slowly, and you often end up getting assignments back at least a month after they were handed in, or never. At the end of each term, students can give feedback to professors, but nothing ever changes. Transferring into or out of MSOE is impossible because of the trimester system. Students here end up depressed and defeated. It is hell.

A very good school, but not for those who want to party a lot.

I had several federal regulations/rights violated by facultyQuite BrightOther
I had several federal regulations/rights violated by faculty members and not even the President or VP of Academics cared. I went through some courses which do not provide any type of course syllabus or grade weights. At the end of the quarter grades come out and everybody is always curious how they got the grade that they had earned.

If you are a Black student be lucky that they discontinued TRIO program because whenever I would go in and ask for a tutor, the receptionist Kathy Barbour would always ask me if I was in Trio. I asked her once why she asked that and she just told me I might want to consider enrolling. She didn't know me and I didn't meet ANY of the TRIO requirements which are to come from a lower income family, have below average scores in one of the three areas on the ACT, or be a first generation college student.This university discriminates, the professors like to see you fail, and when you report problems nothing is done.
