Financial aid generally gets paid out a weekQuite BrightHistory/Histories (art history/etc.)
Financial aid generally gets paid out a week after the semester starts so by the time books are paid and delivered you are 2 weeks behind. The professors online don't post which books are needed or the syllabus until usually a week after the semester starts. They just don't give a $%#$. Security is horrible. Rapes are common. I have received an explicit picture of genitalia on an official school "blackboard".

UTA is ghetto. It's embarrassing. look at the salaries of deans. the school is a joke.ESPECIALLY IF YOU WILL GO INTO LOAN DEBT FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE FOR THIS LOW QUALITY EXPERIENCE!!!!!!

Question
When I was in computer science my academicNot so brightBiology
When I was in computer science my academic advisor spoke to me condescendingly. When I switched to a biology major and was forced to see my advisor for a hold, he gave me no help and when I pushed him for his helpful opinion about a class I needed to take in the summer he basically told me to just sit and wait and hope the class is available. I e-mailed another university who actually provided me with a helpful alternative. The fact that I had to go to a different school to get help, just demonstrated how ill-informed they are. Also, financial aid gave me two different answers to the same questions which then cost me my financial aid. I was not happy.

Question
Do an extensive research before you rush intoNot so brightNursing
Do an extensive research before you rush into enrolling for their AOBSN for"15 months" . this is the length just of their nursing program before that you will need another 70 credit hours. The advisers will NOT tell you all the truth about being accepted in the program. Many people with great GPA stay on a wait list for years, because preference for acceptance is given to people who are employed by the hospitals they work with. This means you might have higher scores and be wait-listed , and somebody who works art time in one of the hospitals, even as a cook let s say, with lower scores will get in front of you!
