I came to UW as a chemical engineering student. That semester was my worst academic performance I had ever had however, the professors saw I was not comfortable in the program and helped me determine where I wanted to be. It's been a lengthy process that has, at times, been far too individually guided.
At least for our discipline, I think it doesn't have enough capabilities for us.
