3 College Senior

Academics: This is college so expect to work.

1 College Junior

Academics: Pay a lot of money to teach yourself and get tested on things you were expected to learn on your own and not covered in the classroom. I mean just utter garbage.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Professors preparing you for the real world. You will get a job and a good one at that.

5 College Freshman

Academics: This school is great if you're planning on staying in the Chicago land area. No matter what you choose i'm not sure if I've ever heard of someone making under $45k after they graduate. Its a well known tech/engineering school in Chicago. Its a 99.9% guaranteed success at getting a job in your field after you graduate. Homework after your first year mostly consists of projects. Your first year it mostly consists of small assignments like high school. As long as you show respect towards your professor they're lenient on attendance.
