The University of Mary Washington - Comments and Student Experiences |
The greatest advice I can give you if you are a incoming freshman is to REALLY try hard in your classes. A stupid amount of kids come here, end up hating the school but are forced to stay because they can't make the grades to transfer out.
Also, if anyone's checked college prowler/college niche or whatever that site is for reviews on UMW, you may find it interesting to note that the featured writer "Sandy Nicole" (which is her real name btw) transferred to Virginia Tech after her first semester. Hmmm....Put the pieces together.
Also google: "10 reasons why the university of mary washington is the happiest place on earth" its a buzzfeed article. Read the comments from students. Priceless. The negative comments are so true I laughed out loud (literally). If you watch weird youtube video someone commented with, look at the background (not the actual people)...you'll notice there is hardly ever anyone. Yeah...it's cuz the school is so boring everybody leaves on weekends. Its a ghost town. As others have said. Believe the reviews that tell you to believe the reviews and do not come here. Stay FAR away! If you make the unfortunate (dumb) mistake of coming here make sure you study hard to transfer out and go to a REAL college. If you read this review and others, ignore it, then end up getting stuck here because of bad grades please dont mope, you were warned.
Most of the people I know who graduated here are working service level jobs because their degree is worthless.
THE ACADEMICS HERE ARE VERY DIFFICULT. Below is the cache!
My best advice to anyone coming here....out of stater's especially who will come here paying outrageous tuition: Do well in your classes and study extra hard. There is a significant amount of students every year who try to transfer out but end up unable and are STUCK at this school because they can't get the grades. The other half drop out or go to a community college.
Nothing else to really say since other posts have already covered what a fake school this is. It is nothing like they advertise because they over exaggerate everything to a ridiculous degree. Visiting students don't know better (obviously).
