Major: English (This Major's Salary over time)
My overall experience of the U of A was good. The class are large so the teachers never asked for alot of homework or papers.If your goal is to keep a high GPA for grad school this is the place to go. The general eeducation program was a joke, if you GO TO CLASS you should be able to get atleast a B. The programs do get harder as you get more into your specific major. Ifound the English program very rewarding

One of the major draw backs is the fact that you have to live in Tucson. Their is absolutly nothing to do ever. The social scene is virtually nonexistant and dominated by a frat scene that only worsens the academics reputaion of the school.

Why did I like it? It was easy and it put me in a position to transfer to UCLA, if I would have stayed my GPA would have gotten me into a great grad school. I am from Tucson which limited my choices to ASU and U of A. The choice was easy. My girl friend attended ASU and it was terrible. While the school had an awesome social scene the school itself sucked. The dormrooms were the worst ever. They put all the Freshmen in one dorm that was 11 stories with elevators that were only working for the first week. Besides that an ASU diploma is worth about as much as toilet paper, the classes at a junior high level. IF YOU NEED TO CHOOSE BETWEEN ASU AND U of A, FOR YOUR OWN GOOD GO TO THE UOFA.
