I am out of UMASS for a long time now.AveragePhilosophy
I am out of UMASS for a long time now. Smoked a lot of weed in college and really got into the party scene at ZooMass to the degree that I got into dealing and eventually landed a long prison sentence which is where I am typing this from. I really loved my UMass experience and have voted it the #1 best college every day twice a day for the past ten years during recreation.

I'm a graduate from UMass-Amherst (a.Not so brightCriminal
I'm a graduate from UMass-Amherst (a.k.a. UMass-Anheuser Busch) and I'm proudly a Students Review Ballot Stuffer. You see, I merely spend all day voting for UMass-Amherst in all reviews in order to put it at the top of every positive ranking list. I might be unaware that most people laugh when they see UMass-Amherst, a little-known school outside of Massachusetts, ahead of MIT, Berkeley, Caltech, or Stanford in the engineering ranking list. Most pathetic of it all, it's atop the lists with an overall number of votes that completely dwarfs all other universities' votes. For example, MIT has an overall 543 positive votes out of 5779. Then you have your laughing stock (UMass) with 7831 positive votes out of an overall number of 50,069. Hilarity ensues!
