Major: Economics (This Major's Salary over time)
  • The campus is very utilitarian. They do not put much work into making the campus look nice.
  • People are too busy to have real friends at the institute. You will end up picking your homework over your friends or friends over your homework and you lose either way.
  • People here are crushed
  • People will lie to you and say that they don't work that much when really they are working all the time- so mindgames
  • people on perscription drugs to help them concentrate
  • You constantly feel stressed out
  • If you aren't the type to study in your room there aren't that many great places to study unless you go out to Boston
  • dull campus life.
  • socially inept stressed people lead to a bad combination
  • Homeworks are created to learn new concepts you have not been adequately taught so you WILL have the experience of not knowing how to do a pset for sure. In this case you betterhave a tutor, know someone who has taken the class or get the answers out of the TA
  • Classes assume a very good grasp of math before you even get there
  • lack of socially conscious ppl
  • Positives

  • You will leave here thinking critically about everything
  • You will learn how to manage your life and learn study skills
  • You will learn how to put your studies first and everything else on the backburner- so you will learn to focus
  • reputation
  • confidence in your abilities to figure things out
