I went to this school because it made financial sense at the time. I was warned that the student body was snobby, rich, arrogant and rude, but didn't believe it could actually be that bad. I was wrong. I had a great time in high school (lots of friends, really involved, well-known athlete, pretty, popular, etc.), however I came here and tried to achieve a similar reputation and experience and it was basically impossible. The only thing that can give you any type of social status here is how blonde your hair is, how dark your tan is, how many north faces you have and how hard you can party. Even if you have all those things, still don't expect to be accepted. The materialism is not the only problem. The students are just rude. It's like a contest when people make eye contact over who can look away or snub the other first. I can't stand it.

The degree looks good, however, I'm not too impressed with the education program so far. All I have learned so far in my education courses is what determinism and white-privilege is. I also noticed in high school, that some of my worst teachers were Miami grads. I'm still after the degree (since it is still considered prestigious in the education field), but strongly considering transferring.

commentI graduated from Miami in 1988. It's always been like this. Too bad.
