Waseda University is one of the top private schools in Japan. It is very prestigious and hard to get into. To get into this particular college there is a entrance exam in which most students study since grade school so they can pass the exam when the time comes for them to take the test. I found it interesting to learn that maybe 3,000 apply to the school but they only accept about 600 which just go to show it is very competitive to get in. I had the opportunity to meet students while I was there. They were very friendly and down to earth. I found it interesting how long some of them travel to school each day for many of them it’s a 2-3 hour ride. Most of the students I met were studying English. There school building was very plain compared to the buildings at Michigan State University. Also there campus was a lot smaller.
