Miami sells you a whole lot of falseBrightFinance
Miami sells you a whole lot of false promises when you visit and during orientation. In short, Miami is an academic joke! The professors, on the whole, are essentially useless, even those that speak English. Their business school has a high ranking owed to the fact that the professors, admittedly, hand out low grades to maintain this rating while doing nothing to encourage real learning or motivation. The advisors/counselors are perhaps even worse than the teaching and have steered our student in the wrong direction at every turn. Contrary to what they will tell you, don't even think about changing majors at Miami without a ton of hastle, heartbreak, and lots more time/money spent at Miami. The housing (both on/off campus) is mostly sub standard and way over priced for what you get. And speaking of price, they will "nickel and dime" you to death. Rest assured the problems mentioned above are not one-off occurrences and we unfortunately could provide many, many examples for all of the above.

Question
I was smarter in high school than college.Finance
I was smarter in high school than college. Business classes I took in high school were harder and more informing than in college. The Miami Plan is a waste of time, where you do not learn anything. I learned more just reading textbooks than from the teachers. Ultimately, Miami has halted my future because I have no idea what I want to do now since going there.

Question
The biggest thing to think about is yourFinance
The biggest thing to think about is your college selection will be something that stays with you for the rest of your life. Miami of Ohio does not have a national reputation. I lived on the east coast and the west coast and whenever I am asked "where did you go to school?" the most common response to Miami of Ohio is "what's that?". If you plan to live in OH your entire life, no big deal but if you aspire to live in other places this will be issue. It has been 20 yrs since I went to Miami and I still regret it.
