No one is the same.Quite Bright
No one is the same. One professor might be great and the other might be awful, same with students. You've just got to make the best of what you can while you're here. I doubt any university is different

Question
It's not worth the money you're just aSuper Brilliant
It's not worth the money you're just a number even if you have a high GPA they don't care if you need financial help good luck finding a scholarship unless you're in honors college, foreign, or are first generation. If you're not bilingual don't waste your time looking for an on-campus job. The students here are not friendly, most professors can care less, and you will at least for one semester get a professor that doesn't speak English well so if you're not great with super heavy accents you'll struggle to understand. My GPA is close to a 4.0. As soon as I have a minute to apply to another university I will be out.

Question
This feels more likeQuite BrightCommunications
This feels more like a money making business than a school, no one cares and no one helps, you're in it alone. You're just a number, they're more caught up with convincing everyone they're this wonderful school than they are with actually making it true. I'm transferring ASAP.
