They will not increase your scholarship after youBrightPreLaw and Legal
They will not increase your scholarship after you enroll. The tuition and room & board go up every year. Everybody gets the same amount of scholarship. If you are smart its an academic scholarship. If you are a good athlete its an athletic scholarship. If you are smart and a good athlete you are SOL, because they lower your athletic scholarship by the amount of your academic scholarship. You can't get both here. They do not tell you this before you come here.

Question
St Ambrose isn't awesome, but definitely isn't theBrightEducation
St Ambrose isn't awesome, but definitely isn't the worse university or college you could attend. If you're smart enough to go to a better university do so, but going to Ambrose won't hurt you when you're trying to a job or get into some grad schools. The profs like to work with students that care about their classes, but at the same time SAU really doesn't have many (if any) opportunities for students to get involved in original academic research.

Davenport and the Quad Cities are fun. There's a little bit less than half a million people in the Quad Cities so if you're bored you're not trying to have fun. Lots of internships and job opportunities for certain majors (business/accounting/finance, social work, and education). Quick student profile - most are from wealthy backgrounds. They've only gone to private or catholic schools their whole lives. They drive new cars and they know the newest am later trends. They're nice, but they're not too concerned with grades because they always have the family business to fall back on if they can't find good jobs. Most are from the Chicago land area, so be prepared to here all about how awesome the Chicago is.

Question
Attending SAU was my only choice since itQuite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
Attending SAU was my only choice since it is in my hood. I like the small university. The only thing everyone dislikes is you have to pay for parking ($60 per semester now. There are many social orgs to join & lots of volunteering to do. Even though SAU is located in a not-so-good-neighborhood, security is here. Some of the faculty only pays attention to their special pets, but mostly, faculty & adjuncts try to assist students whenever it is needed. The staff are friendly, but do get annoyed by students pestering them. Their campus wi-fi is weak and needs to be improved. If you want a one-on-one and a small campus, SAU is the place for you to attend.
