Now, I feel very average in intelligence. The environment is definitely competitive, and there are a lot of weed out classes. If academic rigor is what you are looking for, this is the place for you. Even if you think you don't have to try and can still pass, you're mistake. People try very hard and get only Cs. The professors are nice if you talk to them, but a lot of them seem like they are "over it" and are there for research and not to teach a bunch of college kids. The university tries to be diverse by giving students teachers from foreign nations in difficult classes, and if you're paired wit a TA from the same background, learning is almost impossible unless through tutoring. Success is also determined on what professor, TA, and tutors available to you. One lecture in my Chemistry class had an average of 89% on the test, and the other had an average of 45%. Housing is relatively expensive, but if you're living in the right dorm making friends is EXTREMELY easy and most people are friendly. A lot of kids, especially greek life students, can be mean and snotty, and a lot of kids here are from a white, upper middle class background. When you have a group of friends, though, you'll have the time of your life. The football games here are AMAZING, and Madison definitely lives up to being the best college sports town in the nation. Theres red everywhere, tailgates everywhere, and and endless amount of things to do. Night life is fun, and not hard to find something to do. Would definitely recommend this University if you're up for a challenge.

At first some people don't like Madison because they have trouble making friends. Joining student organizations and choosing a social dorm is really helpful. There is a lot to do so finding people with the same interests as you is important. The classes are usually pretty organized and most people are friendly.

I transferred my junior year and despite the better "reputation" of Madison from the school I transferred from, I find my old school to be much better. There, I was taught by native speakers for my language classes, an opportunity not available at Madison for the language I study. I took Political Science classes with world leaders in the study, but at Madison I feel like my polisci professors are bottom of the barrel nobodies. The campus is hideous. I went to a bigger university before and felt like less of a number than at Madison. None of my classes are interesting.

What is it that people see in this school?

The only good thing about it is that it's much cheaper for me, since I am in-state.

I'm just trying to graduate at this point so I can leave.
