I am going to be completely honest.BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
I am going to be completely honest. I was a normal girl who thought I would fit in perfectly at Miami. I'm not preppy, but I am from a well off family and I do dress nice and have nice things; I just don't like J Crew or Lilly Pulitzer. I went to Miami and rushed, and got into a great sorority. The sorority girls are not nice to each other. NOBODY IS NICE AT THIS SCHOOL. Everything is about which sorority has the most "smoke shows" and which one parties harder. If you dont party hard enough, you're huge ugly losers. If you do party, you're easy sluts. You will be hated no matter WHO you are at this school. I've never experienced such hate at a school in my entire life. I'm transferring after a year of not making one decent friend because nobody gives a sh** about one another. Weirdest place I've ever been.

Question
IF YOU PLAN ON APPLYING TO MIAMI PLEASEQuite BrightPsychology
IF YOU PLAN ON APPLYING TO MIAMI PLEASE READ THIS.
I am currently a sophomore finishing up my second semester. Miami is the type of school that you will either love, hate, or slowly begin to tolerate. I have decided to transfer, and although I have made a couple incredible friends, I am very excited to be leaving. It?s known as the "Oxford bubble" for a reason; it is definitely a different world here.

If you like the following, you?ll like Miami: Greek life, going to frat house parties (only girls, also regular house parties are rare), going to bars, Sperry?s, colored shorts, lulu lemon, name brand everything, dressing up for class, lots of really good-looking people, alcohol, primarily conservative people

If you like the following, Miami may not be the best fit: Wearing sweatpants/casual clothes to class, not joining a sorority or fraternity, cargo shorts, being unique/having a personality, primarily liberal people, being near a city, landscape other than cornfields, diversity

Regardless of if you fit in or not, Miami provides a great education. I?ve only had one bad teacher out of twenty. I simply do not fit in here, and think I would be much happier somewhere else. I have a very relaxed personality, do not like dressing up for class, I?m very invested in my education as well as my friends. However, Miami is not where I am able to achieve my potential. My greatest advice to you would be to visit Miami, with and without a tour guide. The tour guide?s job is to tell you and show you how fantastic Miami is, but you need to make that decision yourself. Talk to people who go here, and take their personality into consideration/ how well you get along with them. Even in you don?t fit the Miami stereotype, you can still find people to get along with, it just takes some searching!

Keep in mind that Uptown is the only place to go out on the weekends, the frats haze, you'll be judged if you don't rush by the Greeks and if you do by the GDIs (it's a trap).

In short, if you?re preppy and like to party you?ll love it.

Question
The Miami plan is a behemoth, and studentsQuite Bright
The Miami plan is a behemoth, and students should plan out their courses for the rest of their time here. It sounds extreme, but the number of fifth year seniors in STEM majors is phenomenal. Planning ahead will save you a lot of time and money. Another important note is to be vigilant of any holdings on your Bursar account. If you have a holding on your account, then you will not be able to register for classes until they are paid off. Any late payments will include extra fees, so stay on top of your account!
