I wasted tens of thousands on an MSLISSchool of Information
I wasted tens of thousands on an MSLIS degree. Got the straight A's (who doesn't?) and am now working in the same field I was in before library school. I have to place some blame on job prospects for librarians, which aren't great, but this half-ass school was no help. I got my undergraduate degree at UT-Austin, so my expectations for UNT were not high, but I was completely underwhelmed by my experience. Faculty was generally not impressive: first impression I got was when a professor wrote, "Here! Here!" on the blackboard, obviously she was not clued in to the fact that she meant, "Hear! Hear!" Jesus, I could go on.

At least they try to get me to contribute as an alumnus, now that they need more money. I recycle without opening mailed envelopes and allow email to go to the spam folder.Bonus: the campus is phenomenally ugly.

Question
Biggest Complaint: BCIS counselors are a hinderance, theSchool of Information
Biggest Complaint: BCIS counselors are a hinderance, the furthest thing from 'helpful'. Get *everything* in writing - preferably in blood. Degree plans change every couple of years and the counselors never seem to maintain any sort of records. If those who can't do...teach - then those who can't do OR teach...become UNT counselors. The school itself is cool. Nice buildings, dorms were great, student body is cool, etc. Minor issues: The class ratios that are posted (19:1) - I don't have any idea how they can claim that. I generally like the big classes, but just so you know, you'll have 30+ in most classes (most Freshman & Sophomore classses were *way* over 30). The calc teachers are first year ESL students and explaining calculus when you don't speak English is tricky - everyone takes calc a couple of times. (Beating)

Question
I am a first year student at UNT.Quite BrightEngineering Department
I am a first year student at UNT. I am from out of state so I am forced to live in dorms my first year. One thing I wished I asked before moving here was whether there were people here on the weekends. Had I asked, the answer would have been no. THE CAMPUS IS EMPTY ON THE WEEKENDS. Everyone goes home. It makes the campus suck. I pay an extreme amount to live in dorms and eat bad food and there aren't even people to hang out with on the weekends. It gets really annoying.
