This school does have its negatives, as most schools do. But overall, most people who do get in and decide to go here make the best of it. Yes it is very competitive, but I personally do not see that as a bad thing. It makes us all better. Some here do make it seem grades are everything but there is definitely a diversity of students who don't just spend all day and night studying to get all As. When they say there are all kinds of people here, there really are. No matter what your personal beliefs are, there is a group for you and people who share those beliefs. This school is preparing us for the real world where no one holds your hand and takes you through life. You have to be proactive if you want to succeed and go out and look for things that interest you. Do not expect to be treated as a baby here where everyone will be concerned with you and do anything they can to help you. It is your life and you are expected to ask for help if you need it or figure it out on your own. If you do need help, there are lots of resources available and great people who are there for you. However, my point is that they treat you like adults. If you cannot handle this then it isn't the school for you which there is nothing wrong with. Most people here also are very openminded and nonjudgemental which can come as a huge relief to some. The campus itself is amazing and the classes are very interesting taught by extremely smart professors. It is a great school but you have to work hard to keep up and it really is a school where you get out what you put in.
