Major: Engineering Department (This Major's Salary over time)
I've been here less than a year. I've had trouble with a certain administrator in EE and tried to remedy the problem for nearly a year. She refused to follow the written degree requirements and guidelines and insisted on making me do what she personally wanted. In the process I was given the run around, lied to and back stabbed by other administrators in the EE department, the College of Engineering and my own department within COE.

They don't give a shit how they treat students here. It doesn't matter. You can lodge a complaint but they will just stone wall you and ignore you. I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone with the possible exception of Mechanical Engineering and perhaps Aeronautical (only because I've had no encounters with AA). The UW is the crappiest place I've been in the U.S. when it comes to its treatment of students. Even the vice president for student affairs has shown himself to be in very poor character. It's pretty good academically, but the human experience negates that easily. To anyone considering going to UW, try to find your program elsewhere. This place sucks.
