For me this university is one of the best I have been to. I don't know why the bad comments.

This school (FIU at MMC) is underrated whenBrightFinance
This school (FIU at MMC) is underrated when it comes to difficulty. The FIU police are lazy, I had my car broken into once and I even caught someone hotwireing my motorcycle in the middle of the day at FIU. There is never any parking spots. It is a clean school but the school is in a horrible neighborhood. After this semester, I will not be returning to FIU again! Oh just today in my ECO2023 class, my instructor showed us a video of someone who graduated from FIU law and is now working at a coffee shop because she could not get highered. How demotivating is that? 7 years of school with 60 thousand in the whole and now she works at a coffee shop making 7 dollars an hour.

If you live in-state, by all means apply.Quite BrightFinance
If you live in-state, by all means apply. The tuition is cheap and their financial aid is more than generous if your grades are decent. The school is so large and the population is so diverse that you're bound to find someone that catches your eye, despite the prevalent trends. The problem lies in the fact that it's hard to make friends. Although most people are approachable, no one seems willing to interact or go beyond "acquaintance" status. I'm sure there are many creative and interesting people out there, but how you reach them is beyond me.

If you're interested in the frat/sorority scene I hear it's differant than at most schools. However, they're loud and annoying enough that their presence is known. It seems fairly easy to get into them: a lot of creepy chicks from my highschool were able to do so. The education itself is OK. If you were interested enough you could research the teacher and find some information on them before you take the courses, making class interesting or slack. The sad part is that most kids opt for the latter. The art, english and history programs seem weak, although I'm not the best judge of that. The business program is good, although cluttered with seemingly naive and greedy people.
