Do your research and find a better option.Quite BrightEducation
Do your research and find a better option. Classes were extremely unorganized and professors did not have any real world experience or expertise. There were days when teachers lectured for hours about unrelated jury duty experiences and days when we were assigned identical projects back to back. Horribly run program and faculty seems uninterested in making improvements.

Seattleu is a totally fine school if youQuite BrightGeography and Geosciences
Seattleu is a totally fine school if you want to attend and there's nothing wrong with that, however as I have encountered there are no legitimate reasons to attend this school. You will be in a situation where someone will ask why su and there just seems to be no legitimate answer. Many point to small classes but let's be real, would you pay 50k for small classes and besides there are other schools with small classes for less. It's because in the back of everyone's mind they ask why not a better school like university of Washington since it's cheaper and better and in Seattle. Small classes isn't worth 20k more and no prestige because no one will know the school. However the food is great with the sushi bar, Seattle itself, campus facilities are nice, and I had a few great professors. But for the most part in my department at least, professors didn't care, no opportunities and they wouldn't give the time of day for you (not all though) because there are some great professors there. But it's just an ok school for specific kind of people, few hot girls mostly nerdy type, Seattle is nice though I like the nature and all the outdoor activities it offers. However if you are looking for a traditional college experience you will not find it there because no fraternities or sororities and no good parties around, you'd usually head over to university of Washington for that. Oh yeah not seeing the sun for 6 months is brutal, but if you like the su vibe then by all means it's not a bad school, I'd just spend the best four years of my life and money elsewhere (I myself have already left for quite some time).

It is not worth $12k per quarter.Quite BrightNursing
It is not worth $12k per quarter. Good professors have come to be a diamond in the rough, rather than permeating the program. I would advise to go to a community college before this school. This is a great place to learn to be unprofessional as teachers often change test & assignment dates, show up to class late and do not take criticism constructively. But the classes are insanely easy, so you'll be able to maintain a 3.5 without doing any strenuous work.I simply came into the program with too high of expectations. If you want an easy program, but are willing to be disrespected for 7 quarters and pay a lot of money, this is a good route. If not, don't waste your money. I am full of regret.
