Right off the bat I noticed so many negative comments, but why? As I read further, a fellow cougar pointed out something out, those negative comments came from those individuals that chose UH as a "last resort"...
I was accepted into UT-Austin, Baylor, Wake Forest, Duke, and UH. Of those I chose UH. At first I was extremely hesitant because of the negative stigma it has received (like review sites such as this), but it is one of the best decisions ive made in life.
-UH compared to other in state schools in considerably cheaper, even with the poor state funding we receive compared to that of UT and A&M.
-Most diverse campus in the nation!
-By living in Houston you have many opportunities open to you. (Internships, Jobs, etc.)
-Peers are down to earth and extremely friendly. Very few individuals with that silver spoon mentality. Majority of the students work and are fulltime students.
-Professors are well educated, most of which are leagues above other universities.
-Poor campus life! 98% of UH commute. Granted clubs, organizations, and events to attend/join are plentiful, a high percentage of students work and attend UH fulltime. UH could do a better job advertising these though. But with the "Masterplan" underway hopefully this helps.
-Our sports department. They work hard, but not much gets done without UT and A&M funding.
-From my experience, the counselors at the business school arenâ€™t very good. I received better advice from friends that have taken classes or just by following how quick certain classes fill up.
-Needs to do a better job to stop dishonest students (cheaters).
