I was never the typical northwestern student and this isnt an environment that very welcoming of difference. My daily routine involved rooting through cross glances and explaining myself to others. While the students judged me, the proffessors did not. I have found the education, while beurucratic at times (sometimes itll take them weeks to reply to me, theyve lost exams..blah blah blah), to be superb.

on the otherhand, northwestern seems to be the school of broken dreams. It seems that this school is the second choice of those who originally intended to go to an ivy league school. Once rejected, they called northwestern home—and the overwhelming sentiment of despair is ubiquitous.
