Never ever attend Western Michigan University as an American or an international student. This school is of extremely low quality and yet is terribly expensive. Its buildings are dilapidated, its faculty and staff speak very very poor English and are not even competent in their specialty subjects. Compared to other mid tier universities in USA, WMU, located in Kalamazoo, MI is by far the most expensive; the cost of attendance to both in-state and out of state students is comparable to those of schools like New York University, UCLA, Columbia, Harvey Mudd College, MIT, Boston University and even the elite top of the tier1 private universities and colleges. As soon as you arrive on campus, there will be a rain of daily fees added to your account. Looking at what really you would be paying for is comparable to searching for a needle in a stack of hay. In addition to very hefty tuition fees, you pay for everything you come across; car parkings, washing machines, gym rooms, medical bills (despite having a separately paid insurance), snow clearance fees and many many others. I would not be suprized to learn that wmu now charges students for breathing and walking inside campus.
Inside dilapidated wmu campus buildings are sub standards walls, ablutions, very old furniture, torn books. In the laboratories you find stone age scientific and engineering equipment not anywhere close in quality to those in universities in third world countries. It is simply unthinkable to believe that this university is located inside the United States. The school is saturated with low quality teaching assistants, who speak very very limited English, they are simply rubbish.
Halls of residence are too costly to live in and yet they are deteriorated, showers are falling, baths are rusty and floor tiles are coming off the floor. It’s the same thing inside the apartment blocks,
The fees for dining and campus meals at wmu shoot through the roof; even celebrities like Cobi Jones, Britney Speaks, Serena Williams, Lionel Messi would complain about the high cost. As you spend your daily live interacting with fellow students on and off the classroom you come across conversations of complaints about the poor quality and an unjustified high cost of attendance. WMU is not even ranked among the top 150 universities in terms of academic excellence in USA, but the cost of attendance is easily among the top 10. Would you say it is wise to apply for admission in this school? Think otherwise, research very carefully, look for better schools with reasonable cost of attendance and a better quality of education.
