Let's just say I have a personal vendetta against hampshire college.

I've had some really good professors, and even the bad ones obviously know much about their fields,

but…hampshire's just…well, it's grad school, basically. Trying to be overly specific without any sort of broad background in anything. The administration is total shit—everything's so disorganized, they never

decide on deadlines until last minute, teachers will NOT push you to do things on time—(and noone does. Although this is the fault of the student, you cannot expect to develop any kind of discipline here, and it is nothing like the real world). I'm going to transfer to some big old university, if they'll take any of my credits, because I would rather have many mediocre teachers but a straightforward, structured education than some good teachers and a ridiculous program of study that makes no sense and is totally inapplicable to the real world. Honestly.

  • p.s. it's kindof weird that it's supposed to be this great school but there are a lot of students who do jack shit here.
