What is your overall opinion of this school?

I loved my time at the UW! The students at Wisconsin are humble, but brilliant, fun, but hardworking. Academics strike the perfect balance of challenge and fun. Professors are brilliant and really focused on the success of their students. Lastly, the city of Madison is an excellent place to come of age. It's full of amazing restaurants, cool things to do, and beautiful places - it is situated between two lakes, after all!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love madison! I love the community and all the great opportunities we are given. But the only thing I dislike is how large the class size is and the fact that you really have to look for academic help. Since the university has so many students, there is not a good system of academic advising. If you want to learn more about research and future job avenues, you really need to inform yourself.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Global is all uw Madison cares about. Can’t tell you how many times I heard or read it. Now I am living it by being rejected. My highschool counselor even alluded to the fact a female white applicant with under a 30 ACT need not apply. Shameful how broken our college system is. Even my rejection letter was signed by a foreign national....can’make this stuff up:(

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UW-Madison is an enormous school filled with extremely bright minds. As a girl from a a small town, moving to a big city such as Madison was a big change, as classes are much bigger than I was used to and much more difficult, and it was a huge change of scenery. However, I love that there is always something to do on or around campus for fun and there are so many extracurriculars available for students to join. There is a club for everyone at UW-Madison where they can feel at home. As for parties, I personally do not partake in underage drinking but I do often hear of many parties all over campus. I can confirm that Madison is known for its party scene for a reason.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a pretty good school. I went there for one class and I didn't enjoy it all that much. The professor only did long lectures and the assistant teachers were the real teachers, and they did not do a good job of teaching. However, I believe if I went for a whole semester's worth of classes I would have done well.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Madison amazes even the most pessimistic college students. With one of the widest varieties of academic opportunities, competitive, club, and intermural sports, student organizations, Greek life, and college living available, Madison truly has something for everyone. The Madison campus offers beautiful and relaxing scenery while still thriving with that large-city buzz. Convenient study crooks and cute coffee shops are around every corner, so finding a place to hunker down and prepare for exams is a breeze. With a combination of anything anyone could ask for in a college, Madison somehow combines all aspects of a city and country-side mixed with one of the nation's highest acclaimed colleges. The University of Wisconsin - Madison truly brings home the Cheese.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Wisconsin-Madison is a wonderful college to attend. I love the beauty of the campus; it is the perfect mixture of city and country through it's connection to the capital through State Street and its border of Lake Mendota, there are so many beautiful historical and modern architecture, a great view of the lake, and just overall a fun atmosphere. There are always people having fun whether that be partying, just walking around campus, playing sports, or attending a football game. The social life is incomparable. While it is a great campus for fun and athletics, it is also a great place to study with its many programs and great professors.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I've have hated my time at UW Madison very much. It seems like everyone is fake-cheery while competing with each other for grades, being extremely shallow, and getting knockout drunk every chance they get. It has been extremely hard to ever get useful advice from advisors, and no one really seems to actually give a damn about anything. I feel like my money has just been sucked out of my pockets, and college wasn't even a real choice, just something society forces you to do as they make a degree like a new highschool diploma, ever-raising the price so trying to work your way through college to pay it off is laughable. If you go into engineering, school will be extremely difficult, but if you go into one of the easy liberal arts majors It seems like your money is totally wasted in terms of job prospects. I tried extremely hard freshman year, but still got C's in 2 general classes that weren't really necessary for my major but had enough credits to totally tank my Gpa to a low 2.0 range (chem and math), and they don't tell you until later they will promptly kick you out of your major if you can't reach quite high gpa benchmarks. I've noticed tons of people hang out in groups and exchange/copy homework answers or get together to work on stuff, and academic integrity isn't really taken that seriously, and everyone does whatever they can to get an edge. I've just become mostly isolated and depressed because I can't just take the school's extrinsic motivation while getting little to nothing in return in terms of real skills or knowledge to help me code on my own/etc. I've made a few great friends, but they also feel the ECE program is lacking. They just make you swallow endless knowledge in the worst formats possible of sloppy videos with scribbly writing, and do everything online, with very limited access to a few TAs who are often hard to understand, and an extremely poor student to faculty ratio while they charge more than other UW schools for what is literally online classes. I haven't had basically any interaction with professors or teachers in the year and a half I've been here, and my grades have become even worse and I feel like it's time to drop out and try another UW school, or go work at McDonald before I get in even more debt at this miserable place.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Dropped out because of the shitty university and city that surrounds it. If you want to have the lowest amount of stress possible in college DO NOT go here. City is noisy and crowded. Drunks and homeless are super annoying and shouldn't have to be dealt with. City is also ugly in my opinion. Sure there are two lakes but you hardly ever see them and they are massively polluted (a few dogs died from drinking lake water recently). You are also surrounded by farmville so there is no good scenery. Professors are all on tenure, super politically biased, and don't care about the students. Your only option here is drugs :)
