I've only been in this school for aBrightNursing
I've only been in this school for a little over a month and I already know this is NOT the place for me. I was so happy to be accepted in to the nursing direct-admit program. I thought I was on the perfect track at the perfect school. The little time I've spent here is representative of what I'll be seeing for the rest of the year and its downright terrible. First off, almost all of the students here are from the rich suburbs of chicago, here on their parents money. The boys are extremely arrogant and usually vehemently support trump. And the girls are cliquey and stuck up! If you don't own wear Lulu leggings you're in the minority. I'm an extremely sociable person, having many friends in high school and am very outgoing. The girls I've met here are not genuine, pretty damn judgmental, and not very friendly. The party scene is SHIT..often have to go to uw-milwaukee to have a decently good time. I visited UW-Madison last weekend where a handful of my friends attend, and cried to my mom when I had to leave to go back to MU! I realized how terrible Marquette really is. It smells all the time, I have few teachers who actually care about what they're teaching, and the dorms and the dorm food are shit for what you're paying. If I could transfer tomorrow I would, but I have to spend a year in this hellhole. If you want a good social life with genuine, good people... don't go here.

I've been here a long time and IBrightPreDent and Dentistry
I've been here a long time and I would Not recommend going here. It's practically Chicago North University. There is no real college experience, the students are self absorbed, uncaring and the very opposite of modest. It's difficult to meet new people as well, everyone acts like they don't know each other and never say hello kind of vibe. LOTS of rich and preppy students from rich prepatories or academies who's moms and dads give them everything. Pretty decent academics but be ready to work for it with limited social outlets and heavy debt. The city is literally dirty and robberies are not uncommon. Campus itself is subpar. It looks good for graduation time.... that's it. I came here for the job I wanted but got nothing more besides that. Kind of disappointed looking back on it to be honest. Go to a UW school, more bang for the buck and a bigger crowd of people to meet.

The campus is moreSuper BrilliantBusiness - Management and Administration
The campus is more dangerous than Harlem. Harlem has about 200,000 african americans that make $44K per year.

Marquette has 240,000 that make $25K on average. Safety rankings are routinely squashed to keep up appearance.
