What a crummy program UA is becoming. They care more about money than their students. Math and physics are atrocious. They're on academic probation and have been ever since I've walked on campus. The chemistry department, at least the Gen-Chem courses, are on the same track. Counselors recommend taking classes at the CC, especially Physics. They all recommend taking Physics at the CC. They have fired some of the best professors in their respective departments in the past couple of years because they didn't keep up with their research, resulting in crappy just out of grad school professors who blatantly don't care about their students and let their TAs "take care of it." That's a problem considering these kids are in grad school themselves and have to deal with longs lines of students. All-in-all, I wouldn't recommend UA to science majors. Business and Education majors though I've heard good things about.

UA is a G-D awful place to be. I wish I had done more research before being suckered into squandering 3 yrs and tens of thousands of $$$ Type in

'NY Times Declining by degrees'
UA is considered the epitome of a large state institution where intellectual vitality goes to die
I came to UA right out of HS. My grades were awful (1.8 GPA) but my 1880 SAT automatically qualified. The application is that of a community college: just personal info, no essay or statement of purpose. They just want your cash.

Tucson: A miserable hellishly hot city. Diesel exhaust permeates and you will get sunburnt just walking between class. No where to walk/bike, without a car you are toast. Arizona as a state is a nightmare to live in full time.

Academics: Absurdly large classes where the professor does not care.
Social: If you are into frats/sororities than bingo. Otherwise prepare for keystone in dimly lit cramped apartmentsOverall: AVOID go to community college instead
