The courses were well laid out and taught me more than just what I needed to know, they taught me how to learn. What was especially helpful was I was able to co-op throughout my upper-class undergraduate run, 5 semesters in all. That was an amazing experience and put me on the path to success. (I had a great offer lined up before I graduated.) Thank you IIT for putting me on the path to a fine career.

However, on my first day of the first semester I could tell the professors were uninterested in our actual understanding of the subject and were closed minded beyond belief. Regardless of how many hours of studying I did, no amount was enough to achieve a good grade on an exam, and most did not curve despite low exam grades. The best professor I had in my time here was a bio 115 teacher who was passionate about teaching. The staff here were also very incompetent,as I would wait almost an hour to receive information about how I can deal with a dorming issue or a stolen item issue. Some of the kitchen staff were also very rude and yell at the international students (it also happened to me at one time), or shame a student for making a mistake when getting food from the commons. Also, IIT looks for any reason to charge your account. Even though the Upass should be a one time charge, the school charges your account almost $140 each semester. As a T.A even told us once "The school only has downtown going for it, or else no one would come here."The other T.A's here (I should mention) are international students and make communication very difficult. I have had labs full of these T.A's and I could not manage to understand why I got points off or what I needed to do next time.

I just hope people will quit criticizing this school. It's true it's a hard school with not much social life but sorry to break it to you that's kinda what success requires. Besides if you really want a great social life you can still have because it's in the middle of Chicago; just don't expect to succeed in your classes. It's really simple. Either you come to IIT to sacrifice 4 years of your life and have a great career later or you just go somewhere else and try to make it there somehow. And please don't come to IIT to do something like psychology and end up complaining everyday of your life after. This an ENGINEERING SCHOOL for God's sake. I mean they offer other programs but don't expect it to be Yale's level because it's an engineering school.

I just finished the 1st year of my program. So far so good, I like most of my professors, they are helpful especially the ones that teaches civil engineering. They invite guest speakers to talk about the life after iit. Some professors however, are bad at explaining themselves because they have bad english, other than that, it is a good school.
