| I transfered out after staying in this university for a year, and honestly I didn't find grass greener on the other side. Not because UB is very good, but because most colleges are merely decent nowadays. Big public colleges share similar problems.|
Courseworks at UB are relatively eassy, you can have a decent grade if you go to class regularly and take it seriously. They don't give you really hard problems, but make sure you know everything covered in class.
Buffalo is a horrible city with horrible weather. Winter is tough, but crime scene could be tougher. Live in Amherst and stay on north campus as much as you can, south campus is in the middle of slums. The only good thing is their chicken wings,yummy!
Most professors are trying to help, but many of them are incompetent. However, college is what you make of it. Study really hard, make extra efforts beyond your exam problems and talk to professors for help, hopefully they will give you some food for thought. Again, this is quite true to all the big public schools nowadays.

| I can't wait to graduate from here. Getting anything done has been a complete nightmare when dealing with administrative issues (billing, advising, financial aid). Many administrators are rude, lazy, and ridiculously overpaid for what they do. You'll get ten different answers from ten different people for one question, and that's when you're lucky enough to be acknowledged. |
Overall my professors are decent and easy to interact with, but they have a really high opinion of themselves, and they aren't open to having students work with them on their research. They have a big preference for international students, so if you're from the Buffalo area, prepare to get looked down on. I feel like a number here, and really wish I went to a liberal arts school instead. This place only cares about making money (they make up fees and don't tell you what they're for) and admitting students.
