Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2012

Academics Rating

The academics are attractive because there is a low teacher-student ratio, meaning students can meet with teachers easily. The academic rigor of the business school, however, is a joke. I would not recommend the College of Business, where capstone courses don't give out less than a C just for doing all the assignments. Not so in engineering, where academics are renowned.
