Major: Biology (This Major's Salary over time)
I am a sophomore premed Bio major from WV, and I really do love WVU. I know that's a cliche since most West Virginians were taught to love the Mountaineers at birth, but it really is a pretty great place. The Bio department is particularly attentive to its students, and most professors are always trying to make themselves available to help you. The Physics department is pretty bad and the Chem department is okay (though the organic professors are great.) I'm uncertain about the other departments. WVU isn't a name brand university and often gets a bad rep for being a party school, so the university really goes above and beyond in trying to help their serious students succeed (i.e. The pre-health office, which only has one job: getting people in to dental, pharmacy, PT, PA, and med school.) There are a lot of research oppurtunities as well, though thankfully the lecturers are not researchers. :) Greek life is big, but it's not a big deal if you're not involved in it. You can party hard or be a serious ball-busting student at WVU.
