What surprised people about the school they chose?What surprised people about the school they chose?

"A lot of programming was required. I wish I had taking crash courses prior to starting. I also wish I could have devoted more time to studying. Not putting in enough work showed in a few classes."
"I had not really believed that finding a job would be easier but, in fact, it was. Partly, I think, because of my new knowledge and partly from the confidence that knowledge gave me."
"I was surprised who much the professors invested in their students. I was also surprised how little work the college as a whole required of it's students to graduate. I think internships should be more enforce."
