Furman is a great educational institution. Given that it may not be the most fun place in the world because of strict campus security, the class work and teachers have undoubtably helped me learn and grow over the last three years. The Business Block, the core semester for business majors, was extremely challenging and probably the best and busiest semester I have had so far. However, despite the hard work and deflated gpa's, the Furman reputation does not carry its weight amongst company's. I have found that the school is viewed as just another southern school by HR recruiters and often asked why my GPA is not on par with other canidates from bigger and easier state schools. Consistently having to explain to anyone above the Mason Dixon Line where I go to school and that it is indeed a good university is also becoming very annoying. Amongst graduate schools, the reputation is much more on congruent with the actual difficulty of the school and admission representives will tell you that they do understand the difference between a 3.2 from Furman and a 3.7 from Clemson or South Carolina.
