Umass Amherst is a for profit school. They do not value you as a student, they only see you as a source of revenue. The financial aid is some of the worst in the state. It would literally cost less money to go to Harvard. I am an in-state student paying 80% of the full cost of attendance. The administration spends hundreds of millions of dollars on useless construction (exclusive dorms,sidewalk construction, a SIXTH science building) but when it comes time to divvy up the financial aid they can't find the funds. Most classes are so crowded the profession will never learn your name or you need to use a clicker (at your own expense) to take attendance. Go here if you are eligible for fed aid, if not avoid at all costs.
