Profit above all else?this is the most important thing to know about the UW. It is a business. The administration doesn't care about any more than Amazon does, actually scratch that, less because at least Amazon wants your repeat business. They do a great job on selling you an idea: research, small course sizes, student life, whatever it takes to get your tuition money. Then you'll get here and find out, the fountains are only turned on for tour days... They've got you in, now they are done caring. Especially for STEM majors, students with existing barriers, such as disabilities, really do not come here. They will convince you, for example, that you should come because it is a research institution and you will have access to lab opportunities. Then they will do nothing to help you find a position, don't want to hire enough faculty (costs money), course sizes are too massive to connect with anyone, and you will try 30 different labs (not expecting pay) and *maybe* find a spot during the last quarter of your senior year, now that you have enough experience to be taken seriously. Yes, you need experience for an unpaid position. I think every day about how I could have gone to Western.
