University Resource Use
The McCormick School of Engineering is especially fantastic. Although EDC and the EA sequence aren't a cake walk, they help you build a great foundation. The school's emphasis on whole brain engineering is fantastic, and I have personally loved being able to take advantage of the fact that you can take up to a quarter of your classes in the humanities. Furthermore, the engineering school is incredibly collaborative and I've found a really strong community within my major.
The Kellogg Certificate Program is also a unique and challenging academic path that I would recommend to any student motivated enough to get through the pre-requisites. The classes are taught by fantastic Kellogg professors, the support staff is really helpful as your pursue professional internships and full-time positions, and having the Kellogg brand on your resume ushers in a vast array of opportunities.
Lastly, the pre-professional attitude of the school means that students can often come off as brisk and even unfriendly, but there are loyal and brilliant friends to be made and the network I will walk away with when I graduate will be incredible. The social scene isn't fantastic, but if your the kind of student that's admitted to Nerdwestern in the first place, you'd rather spend the evening brainstorming the next facebook than getting shit faced in a bar.
