He cares more about Competitiveness than the average student.

Major: School of Information (This Major's Salary over time)
Despite wanting desperately to understand the grading requirements, testing material, and other aspects of grad school, The UW makes concerted and paranoid efforts to conceal this information from all students, with the perception that access to the information which a student requires for targetted studies and productive educational tutorage, is equal to cheating.

This is such a mind-bending perception that I was unable to function as a student and my grades went from 4.0 to 1.6 GPA annualized. This University confuses ablation of students to be superior to actual competitive knowledge and skills, and they practice aggressive weeding out in various areas of the institution, including students who are already admitted.

One such requirement is the insane demand of the Masters program in IT for an incoming student from ANY OTHER COLLEGE to take SEVEN post-bachellorate classes PRIOR TO GAINING ADMISSION. Any Math majors out there will agree with the Economics majors; Any student would run out of financial aid long before completing this process. The classes ARE not to be taken concurrently.

I obtained special permission to take two at a time, but my grades were further decimated by the obscene requirements for sequential teaching, and secrecy.

The UW has ONE GOAL, and it is not the education of its students. The Goal of the University of Washington is "Status."

The entire campus and all its facilities, staff, and the regents, en toto, have 'little man' syndrome. I'd call it "Grant Envy."

I am demopoly on google mail, for advice on how to deal with this system at UW. Basic advice: Go elsewhere.
