UNT is a great place to learn andSuper BrilliantAccounting
UNT is a great place to learn and prepare yourself for the workforce or graduate school. I was not pushed very much by my peers to be the best (i.e. it was fairly easy to be the top student in the class). The faculty and staff are VERY knowledgeable. There is more than enough to do in terms of campus life/extracurricular activity. The athletics are not that great (if you're looking for a heavy sports tradition school). A UNT degree is respected in the workforce. I came out of school and worked for Ernst & Young (a big 4 accounting firm).

I was initially attracted to the arts programSuper BrilliantMechanical Engineering
I was initially attracted to the arts program here and made the mistake of coming to this school. After switching from arts to engineering it became clear this school simply would not cut it. To be frank, the schools extremely lax admissions policy provides those who are not intellectually inclined an opportunity at higher education. The school caters to these individuals, resulting in coursework that is simple beyond belief, and despite my advanced standing, the upper level courses I'm enrolled in are quite laughable. In addition, the students here disregard many essential facets of a competent person, namely health, as you will see many overweight students who choose to overindulge in unhealthy food rather than go the gym, as well as academics, as students will disregard homework despite it's extreme simplicity. Furthermore, the students are quite trashy and seem not to care about maintaing an acceptable appearance. Students spit as they walk, african american males as well as caucasian males refer to others with racial slurs, and many students have a preoccupation with sex and partying. In conclusion, I would not wish this school upon my worst enemy. You don't even need a high score on the sat or a perfect gpa to attend far better schools such as UT or A&M, so quite naturally there is no logical reason anyone who values academics, health, and respectably should attend this school.

The administration is not good.Quite BrightPolitical Science
The administration is not good. They are always late processing paperwork and will give you the run around a lot. A lot of tuition is wasted on free food and events for students rather than educational benefits or scholarships. If you are looking for a party school without a decent education, this is the school for you. It is all about the party and hundreds of thousands are spent for on campus parties.
