I'm really dissappointed with this UniversityMar 06 2007Economics
I'm really dissappointed with this University. I'm in my second to last semester and wondering if there's a point in completing it. The classes are challenging but ultimately grades come down to the prof not wishing to fail too many people, so there's a substantial curve.

The program is HEAVILY biased towards students who did their undergrads here, too. If you came in as a new grad student, you have no chance of getting on a research project or getting most assistantships.

The labs are a cross between the Romper Room and Ghetto Fabulous. There's nothing but attitude and immaturity here. I can't stand my classmates - they're mostly drunks and airheads. I cannot imagine how this program will help me in the future, and in particular I'm concerned how much this program will HURT my reputation. However, I'm inclined to stick it out because NO PROFESSOR is willing to write me a recommendation, and if I drop out now, I have nothing to show for the past three years' work.Either way, I'll be lucky to find something beyond entry level. Thanks a lot, UMSL.

The graduate programs are excellentFeb 26 2006Political Science
The graduate programs are excellent. The faculty are always willing to work with you. Most are very approachable, and are willing to help with just about anything. The department has little to no internal politics, support is abundant. Funding is low for grad assistantships, but they are trying to increase it. Otherwise, fantastic resources and people.
I have had a wonderful experience here atApr 01 2005Communications
I have had a wonderful experience here at UMSL. My education has been top notch and I am being considered for assistantships by the top 2 communication PhD programs in the country. The school is mainly commuter currently, but is building new dorms and apartments and is starting to give buildings to the greek life here as well. The great thing about this school being commuter is that if you are intersted in getting involved, you will really stand out. The faculty take notice of students who work hard in and out of the classroom and are willing to work with you to help you meet your goals. And, I don't mind that the school has used some of my tuition money to build new buildings because it is helping the school to grow and become a more traditional campus with a vibrant student body and social calendar. If someone didn't get involved and enjoy their experience here, it's because they didn't try!!
