I'm not gonna write a whole lot because

Jul 12 2014Communications
I'm not gonna write a whole lot because the negative reviews have already covered how crap and fake this school is. You'll probably read them and ignore them anyway, like I regretfully did. Since you likely won't listen to the reviews and still apply or go here, listen to this one piece of advice that I wanted to reiterate by someone else.

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.

I loved my time. I ended up really embracing the city and the benefits of the schools size and high level of academics.

To all of the out of stater's considering

Jun 15 2014Psychology
To all of the out of stater's considering attending here...this school is considered one of the bottom of the barrel schools in virginia. Don't listen to the schools advertisements. Legitimate schools don't have to advertise as much as this school does with bias statistics to make the school seem better than it is. Does UVA< Upenn, yale, etc have these outrageous ad's with BS stats on student satisfaction and stuff? no.

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).
