I would suggest that if you are looking into attending UR, be very honest with yourself. This isn't a school where its easy to do your own thing - this is a small school where most people are VERY similar and it's exactly like high school (well mine at least) and if you were the type who wanted to get out of HS onto bigger and better things, I would say this is not the place for you. Weekends are mainly about drinking at parties, and the city of Richmond doesn't have much going on. If you make the effort to find some nice normal people, you can have a good time, but it takes effort. As for academics, the majors and classes offered here are so limited that I'm considering transferring. The positives about UR include its great business school and beautiful campus. However, think twice about the importance of these things to you. If you enjoy closedminded rich kids (and just slightly well-off kids who try to act rich) or if you ARE one, then by all means, submit an application. The small atmosphere can really get to you after a while if you're more a more openminded person.
