He cares more about Excess Competition than the average student.
Major: Aerospace Engineering (This Major's Salary over time) The coursework is difficult and sometimes overloading, but I think in the end you learn a lot. There is a social life here, but finding time for it in between classes and homework is the hard part. EVERYTHING is competitive, but if you are naturally gifted or have good people skills (get to the know the professors well) you'll get what you want (I'm not one of those people so it is hard for me). Career Center is a nice tool, but when it comes to internships and co-ops the onus is on you. Certainly, there is a divide between engineering/science/med school students and liberal arts/business students, but I don't think one looks down on the other. I'm an engineer, but I admire my pre-law friend studying History, English, and Political science undergraduate degrees. Research opportunities are a plenty which most schools can't say. Take advantage when you find the time, it looks great on a resume.
Best advice I can give is come to Case if you are willing to work hard and want to be an Engineer, Medical professional, Business major, or graduate student. Liberal arts school here is good too, but not worth 28k-55k a year. Also, do your own searching for the right extra-curricular activities and socialization, and you will find what fits you. TIME MANAGEMENT IS IMPORTANT TOO!
My son is keen to do Undergraduate major in Mechanical Engineering. He is an international student. Got admission in UCLA, Case Western and Purdue without aid. He got in Drexel with $18000/yr aid. What is your suggestion about these, if aid is not a major criteria. Whis is the best pick for Mechanical Engineering among the above, how does CWRU compare with UCLA, Purdue and Drexel? Appreciate your honest and detailed feedback. Thank you in advance. Regards
If money is no object and your son feels comfortable at any of the three universities, I'd recommend Purdue for Mechanical Engineering. The Mechanical Department at Case (EMAE Dept. as we call it) is in a transition right now as our Chair is leaving for another university to be a dean, so being caught up in that would not be good. Drexel and UCLA wouldn't be bad, but Drexel is not as renowned as Case and my friend from Lancaster, CA says Cali schools are ultra-competitive. Purdue offers pretty much all engineering degrees and they are all respected degrees. I got into Purdue, but received no aid and did no like the campus. That ultimately lead me Case.
