Major: Economics (This Major's Salary over time)
I love W&M and think it's a great school, but certainly under-funded. The biggest gripe is obviously the town. Williamburg the college have a love/hate relationship. There isn't much to do in the town, and the townies like to keep it that way. Students aren't conducive to tourism ya know? As far as fun, there is the standard college crap, but you've got to try a bit harder to make your fun.

I don't think the Econ department pushes students hard enough. A lot of students in the intermediate level classes are taking the class for some other major, ie: IR, Public Policy, Gov't, etc. Some the classes are kinda dumbed down so that these kids can pass. Calculus should be required for econ majors just like it is at any other school of W&M's caliber, alas, it's not.

I expected W&M to be a lot harder than it has been so far. Its cake, the majority of people who complain about the work are just lazy. Don't be lazy!
