There's nothing particularly outstanding about the school, to be honest. Four years in, I've realized that the school isn't all that, but the students are--civic leaders, entrepreneurs and future scientists. And the student diversity.
Paying more for less. It's unacceptable that students have to pay much more (33% this coming year) for fewer services and resources. Many classrooms are dilapidated, labs lack equipment and I've noticed a decline in the school's overall educational quality throughout my four years here. It bothers me a lot that more fiscal resources are funneled over to athletics than to academia.
And Westwood is also a dying college town--half of the businesses on Westwood Blvd are shuttered and the rest don't even cater to the college crowd. You seriously need a car.
