Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2012
"Loved UW-Madison although it was easy to get lost in the crowd at such a big school. There are a ton of resources available and groups to get involved with, so make sure you take advantage of those things! My professors were all very knowledgeable and had real world experiences they brought to the classroom."

"It's a huge school, and you can do anything you want to do here. That being said, it is a big place, and there isn't really anyone looking out for you. Be careful with your gen eds, especially if you switch majors. I know people who switched majors, and no one told them that their gen ed requirements switched. Also, be aware that philosophy is probably not a good major for finding a job. I went to law school. If you want to go to law school, you would still probably be better of taking a business degree. That being said, I got into a t14 law school (if you are considering law school, you should know what this means) right out of college, and before I graduate law school I obtained a job in my desired field of law.

"Fantastic college, known both for its academics as well as what is done outside of the classroom. If one can bear the cold winters, they will find there is very little to dislike. The copious amount of classes and excellent professors will appeal to everyone. Outside of the classroom, people will find their niche there, whether it be partying, sports, art, et al., because of the sheer size of the school."

"The financial aid office is terrible. There is limited support and funds for single parents. The instructors overload work not being realistic that you have other courses, families, and work. The school is only designed for traditional students who do not have obligations."

"It was an enormous school, and took me some time to find my niche, but once I did I loved it. Same degree, but my choice of grad school degree might be different. You don't HAVE to do everything right away. I wish I had taken a year off between high school and college to either work or travel (preferably a combo of the two)."
