I have only talked with two students, and both are friends of mine that are close to graduating and love STCL. One took advantage of the study abroad program over the summer and had a blast, the other had really good internships. The students both told me the school has some connections with internships, but that its really kind of on your own to find them unless you are in the top of the class, so that is a downside. I heard though that the professors are all very good and open to helping you. Basically, if you are struggling and willing to stay around late and work, they will help you. It is expensive, and that sucks, but I love houston and live about 45 minutes from the school. Downtown, if you have never been, has its bad parts, but is in improving everyday and has so many options for nightlife, and the beach is not too far away, if you can take the heat and humidity you will like it.My friends both told me the first year is just stressful because you are learning a whole new process of thinking and studying, but after the first year they were able to go out again on the weekends and occasional Thursdays. The class sizes are small, and i have been told you are able to get to know people well. Are you still waiting or have you heard yet? I have a good friend who is still waiting, and she applied in early January. Good Luck. You could call and ask about it?!?!?!
