i am interested in kent's writing programs. writing is not one of my strengths and i would really like it to be upon graduation.
hey tori, what did you think about the facilities? have you visited depaul or jmls? how do their facilities compare?
The location is great, very accessible by public transportation. They're literally a block from Union station, and also close to the CTA blue line and NW suburb Metra lines. The part time evening student on the panel said she drives in after her day job and parking isn't a problem in the evenings (tho I bet the traffic on your way there is a pain).
Everything I saw in the building seemed to be in good condition. The only other school I've seen so far is UIUC, which also has decent facilities. I thought the UIUC library was better than Kent's, but I think UIUC is supposed to have the 3rd biggest or so. There's so many resources online these days, it probably doesn't matter a whole lot either way.
I'm going to try to run by Loyola sometime soon. No plans for DePaul or JM though. I've heard terrible things about John Marshall from other people.
Oh, one other general comment about both Kent and UIUC, they said people rarely drop out for academic reasons. I think that's a good thing.
