Major: Geography and Geosciences (This Major's Salary over time)
Miami is a great school and has an amazing business school. If you get through the business school you will get a solid internship and job with a good firm, but if you are any other major it can be rough - especially because the career fairs cater overwhelmingly to Miami's business students - whether that's good or bad is for you to decide.

Miami is ridiculously materialistic. I went to one of the top achieving public high schools in Ohio that sends many off to Ivy's each year. The school district definitely had a GREAT deal of affluent family's and powerful people in the community - but their wealth and influence is different than what is found at Miami. I had never experienced the overwhelming ignorance and ridiculous attitudes found in Miami's student body. Miami was the first place I experienced real racism (I'm as WASPY as they come).

This is not a school for a top achieving and open minded person. If you consider yourself a nerd in anyway and have no interest in business, you won't feel comfortable here. Miami has gotten a little more diverse and the business school is AMAZING, but if you are gifted at another field such as the sciences, engineering, art or foreign language (I just picked a few random majors…) you should go to a good private school or state school where you will feel comfortable and a part of what's going on.

If you don't plan on joining a frat or sorority, I don;t understand why one would want to go here at all - seriously. If you do join a good frat/sorority you will have the most amazing 4 years of your life.

Just know what you are getting into when you go to Miami. If this is what your into - you'll have an amazing experience, but just make sure you visit a few times, go out with some friends and educate yourself thoroughly on the Greek scene.
