The school has undoubtedly a reputation within theNot so brightChemistry
The school has undoubtedly a reputation within the Midwest on been "challenging yet rewarding ". Altlhough, it is challenging, I m confident it is not rewarding.

Be careful ! Think again !
In the Chemistry department, I have encountered silent malevolence, pride, disrespect, condescendance and bully. The worst part is, they encourage you to have the courage to report a staff member bully, while simultaneously justify their behaviors. I was alone and odd.

Across the room, almost everytime, I would catch a professor reading me. Trying to depict my thoughts, in other words, I lacked privacy. Now imagine how uncomfortable it may have been for an empath like me.

I refuse to see the school for what is was not. It has issues and everyone seemed blind or choosed to be. I taught myself most of my course work and it made me better, more eloquant.

The school is :
- Small,semi-private university, located in spectacular area.
- # 6 for Petroleum Engineering (national)
- # 54 best national engineering school
The school is not :
- yet a Nobel Prize material
- The average salary of an engineering graduate student is the same for a graduate from FIU.
- Not innovative nor Creative ( which is why they not comparable to MIT)
This school is for you if :
- You have failed to enter the Ivy leagues.
- You are pretentious and have a great sense of pride about the school even before attending it.
This school is not for you if:
- You are looking for an education similar that of the IVY leagues (I know that because I attended an IVY league after mines)

- You are innovative and creative. But if you choose the school regardless, remember, Know Thyself !

This is a very challenging school but worth the investment if you want to be an engineer and get a good job.
