Question
I went to UTEP ignoring the negative reputationQuite BrightHistory/Histories (art history/etc.)
I went to UTEP ignoring the negative reputation it has. I was wrong to do so; the students are the rudest people I have ever known (and I'v known a lot of rude people). Most students should not be in the university setting (most can't even read at college level). I had professors explain how to wright an essay--at first I thought it was a joke, but students here really do not know how to wright. Sports aren't that great and the social life is none existent. Although I expect UTEP to become a better university, at this point, it is a poor excuse for one. I would not recommend anyone come here. \

Question
I'm not saying that you won't learn anythingBrightComputer Science
I'm not saying that you won't learn anything at UTEP, but the reputation will kill you once you get into the job market. I could not get internships at top companies, as I wanted to go to graduate school in my field. Even though my grades were quite good, 3.80, the schools I wanted to go to placed me at the bottom of the list. Since I'm from the area, I stayed and am working at a job well below that of my supposed educational level. I should have gone to an out of state school of went to UT Austin.
