I visited Rose about two weeks ago and I really liked the school. I did an overnight visit, a campus tour, and sat in on a class. I have a few questions/concerns about Rose that I was hoping some of you could answer.
1) Boy to Girl Ratio
Is it really as bad as it seems on paper? This is one of my main concerns about going to this school. I was wondering if this is something I should consider when choosing where to go to school or if I shouldn't be afraid of it?
2) What do the students do on weekends besides video games?
When I visited I got the impressions that alot of the students were really into video games. I am not really into video games. I will occasionally play Wii, but its not my favorite thing to do. Will I be completely bored at this school if im not into video games? What do most students do on weekends?
How do people afford this school? I got a 7K scholarship from them and a 3K grant. In order to afford this school I would have to take out alot of loans. Do most people take out this much in loans to go to this school?
4) Music Involvement
I currently play the violin and viola, and am very active with them. At Rose will there still be opportunities (such as orchestra's, musicals, etc.) to continue playing these instruments.
Overall I was impressed with this school. I know that this would be the best place for me to go to get a good engineering education. If anyone could answer my questions above that would be great!
