My time at UWMad has been incredible and I wouldn't have picked anywhere else. The parties and social scenes are top notch every weekend, and the classes provide both rigor and interest during the week. It's the best kind of balance.

Madison has a beautiful campus. The architecture, the view of the lake, and the large green space really sets Madison apart from other schools like it. The academic rigor is nice, however not too challenging, and while most discussion classes are lead by teaching assistants, they are still able to completely teach in the classroom. The size of the campus can be a little daunting as its about thirty minutes from one side of the campus to the other, however most classes are within a fifteen minute walk. The one thing about Madison is a lot of students seem to already have a plan and completely know where they're going, and it's okay to be one of the kids who is still figuring that out.

It's kind of hard trying to get scholarships, and the school does not offer that much financial aid. I'll probably end up transferring, but still it's a fantastic school.
