Miami has an image- preppy, good looking (bothBrightPolitical Science
Miami has an image- preppy, good looking (both the campus and the students), snobby, greek and not well known outside of Ohio. By in large, the image is correct- but like all stereotypes, the typical image doesn't encompass every student. Miami is a fun, academically challenging school with a beautiful campus located in the middle of no where. If you're looking for diversity, it's not the place for you- it's mostly attended by white, christian, middle to upper class midwesterners. If you're looking for social activities beyond keg parties and bars, it's not the place for you. If you don't want to spend the rest of your life explaining to everyone not from Ohio that you didn't go to school on the beach, it's not the place for you. But if you're looking for a beautiful, safe campus, a strong greek system, good professors (mostly), great athletic facilities not just for varsity athletes and a fun, little town that caters to the school, Miami is the place for you. Miami is big enough that you don't know everyone but small enough that it's never overwhelming. It's big enough that it offers lots of majors and lots of course variety but small enough that after 1st year you can avoid sitting in huge lecture hall classes. It can be challenging- especially in architecture and the business school gut courses but not so hard that it impinges on your social life. I learned a lot in the classroom but a lot more out of it. After college, I moved out to the east coast to go to law school and I now work in DC. I've gotten used to people asking me if we had lectures outside!

J. Crew U isQuite BrightCommunications
J. Crew U is correct! Steer clear if you don't own North Face jackets or Kate Spade purses! There are only a few "real" people at this school, and they're tough to find.

Consider attending a differentBrightCommunications
Consider attending a different university if you are not a jock, cheerleader, or frequent party person. You will get gawks and rolling eyes if you do not sport outfits by J. Crew or coats by the North Face. Don't try to be an individual unless you want to be shunt.
