Finished reading that, and I can draw the following conclusions:1. This student did NOT research the chosen university properly. Any cursory discussion with current students and alumni would have made it obvious what kind of teachers would be present. FWIW, I went to a mid-sized public school in a mid-major athletic conference. The only place I remember having TA's instead of true professors was in the math department, and while some of them had pretty thick accents, those foreigners were often BETTER at teaching than the "true blue" American TA's.2. This student is more worried about GPA than learning the material. "Give grades that will make engineering majors competitive in a grade-inflated environment." Exqueeze me?!? You don't pick engineering because you want a 4.0 GPA. You pick it because you want to build stuff.3. "Engineering professors are perfectly happy weeding out undesirables with absurd boot-camp courses that conceal the inability of said professors to communicate with words." Or in other cases, weeding out the people who truly do not belong in such courses. One former classmate who washed out of Computer Eng never belonged there in the first place. Thought computers were good for nothing but hooking up and porn. He's a baggage inspector at TSA now.
