'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
