| At the main campus of the University of Missouri, everything appears to be as you would expect a D1 university to be. The campus is nice looking and students are abundant. But what lies behind this facade is much different. As a student I have been screwed out I most everything I work for. The University charges an absurd amount of money for instate tuition, and not to mention other hidden fees. The dorms are generally a) too expensive and unnecessarily nice, or b) dirt cheap and terrible, not to mention 40 years old. On top of that, MU loves to give you the run-around. I have waited hours for appointments, gone to countless offices to be directed somewhere else, and information is not readily available. The quality of professors here is nothing exceptional. Most professors have their TAs proctor their exams, grade quizzes and teach classes. These TAs are students themselves who seemed to learn the information only severally years before, hardly qualifying them to teach at a university level. This, could be be viewed as a good thing, because many professors cannot speak understandable English. |

| The people at this school school are overall extremely preppy and close minded. I feel everyone is going for some sort of ideal image all the time...I feel like I cant really express myself when it comes to wearing something out. Obviously this is not everyone, I have met some great people but this is just overall. |

| AVOID at all costs. I am in the science program and majority of your teachers will have TAs that do not speak english that will teach you 1/3-2/3 of the week while your teachers will curb the grades so much because they cannot teach worth a damn and choose to confuse the students instead with bogus test questions that were never talked about in class. One of my teachers wrote the textbook for her class and subtly decided that the test should be about everything but what the textbook covered. So I could not even study for her test without bringing a tape and video recorder to her class. Then my other teacher would make a 60% a B because everyone was flunking the class because he liked to think that by throwing random test questions from page 565 in a subcaption box on the test that he never talked about in class he would be teaching us something. His chem labs were ridiculously long and never satisfactory, with no apparent guidelines. Then my math teacher taught about 1 minute on each topic, and left all the dirty work to my TA who taught us most of the week who could barely speak English. |
Most of my TAs spoke broken English and the experience was truly a nightmare. Combine that with campus cops that are always parading around and needlessly harassing people, dorm monitors inspecting your room without warning when you aren't home every week, and the cafeteria food which at first seems great but by week three is absolutely disgusting and cheap...I cannot recommend this place. In fact I think the biblical description of hell is more appealing than returning to this bureaucracy. The office even lost my medical records and is claiming I owe them money and turning me over to the federal government for collections.
This place, with its glorious gym, is nothing more than a 20,000$ a year gym membership and a retirement plan for arrogant teachers that are more concerned with making students feel stupid by expecting them to memorize things in one minute and then throwing random questions on tests. AVOID AT ALL COSTS.
