Worse School possible.Bright
Worse School possible. Teachers in my program were fine but outside of it they were miserably bad. The school doesn't care about anything but their money. Go to community college.

Question
Avoid, if you are on a pre-healthcare path.BrightBiology
Avoid, if you are on a pre-healthcare path. Avoid this school. The courses are overloaded with people, 100 - 400 per class. You don't get to know your professors, there is no learning going on here. There is only test taking. You don't write papers, learn how to do research, do presentations. It's just test after test. Which is not a good indicator of your comprehension level/effort. I am a post-bac student, I went to a different university for my undergrad and this school is trash in comparison. Avoid at all costs!

Question
Portland State University is not the right schoolQuite BrightHistory/Histories (art history/etc.)
Portland State University is not the right school for everyone. It's the kind of place that is bursting with energy, full of a lively hustle. It's fast moving, not as lazy and laid back as other universities. It's the place for adventurous spirits, food or coffee lovers, urban dwellers and those who have always dreamt of being urban dwellers. It's a place for people who want to speak up, who want to challenge what they think they know. It's a place for people who want to grow. So it's not the right university for everyone, but for some of us, it's perfect.
