This is my second review where I'd likeAverageComputer Science
This is my second review where I'd like to add some extra points. Apologies if I repeat some points from my first post. If you are a student who was even somewhat serious in high school about academics, UNC Charlotte should be your absolute last choice. While the campus has some very beautiful buildings, the students and quality of the community is absolutely awful. Let's just say that the students are not the brightest. Most of them can't even form a single sentence using proper grammar. They frequently complain and are very negative and are just, simply put, dumb. It would be the very least pleasant if the students had basic social skills or common sense, but they don't, and, instead, just have a complete lack of awareness or common sense. They have no redeeming qualities at all. There's no dating or relationships around campus because the students are so intellectually and socially inept. The university doesn't even have a chess club- 30,000 students. When you walk around campus everyday, most of the students keep their heads down and are very unfriendly. I'm not a doctor, but I have a feeling that lots of students here have Aspergers. The school is ranked 228 on us-news, and everything beyond that is pretty much unranked. The four year graduation rate is literally 29%- it's a joke.

This school is an absolute academic joke.BrightComputer Science
This school is an absolute academic joke. The students not the brightest, and from hearing them speak a single sentence of their ebonics and broken grammar, they make you feel pretty uncomfortable. On top of this, most kids here must have some kind of autism. When you look at them and smile, lots of them do this weird thing where they make a weird face almost like they are struggling with something and look down to the floor. The only positives I can think of are the campus with beautiful buildings and new architecture. The 26% 4 year graduation rate should speak for itself. You wonder why that number is so low until you see the type of kids that go to this school- overweight, nose picking, autistic, complaining, ebonics speaking. You just think to yourself- gross. Everyday I ask myself: How did I come to this place? Choosing a scholarship here over NC State was one of the biggest mistakes I've ever made in my life. The social life is nonexistent because the kids here are so autistic and can barely hold a normal conversation. The surrounding area is full of ghetto lowlifes with frequent break-ins and robberies. Your much better off going to a community college than coming here because its honestly the same.
