On Academics: The regular classes aren't challenging to the point that you don't want to do your work. But less challenging work gives you more time to explore your interests in electives.

On Administration & Policies: They don't stick to the rules and decide what to enforce and when to enforce it. The counselors rely on computers to do their scheduling and rarely give students advice and counseling.
