Certain major programs are not clearly defined on the school website, so make sure to check with multiple sets of advisors to get a clear picture of what classes are actually required,especially for programs like 3-2 engineering

Scripps definitely is a unique place to be that some love and others hate. The very liberal atmosphere can feel intimidating and will take getting used to. I feel that many of the people who make up Scripps are very similar in their ideas, ways, and beliefs, and will reject anyone who disagrees. With the other 4C's around, Scripps' weaknesses more or less balance out. The 5C community as a whole is really great.
