UA was a great place for a solid undergraduate education. Anything I "missed" or didn't learn was my own fault, not the university's. I wish I had taken more courses and studied abroad. I was extremely well prepared for grad school and the "real world."

There are a host of opportunities for students of every skill level. Advanced students have opportunties to work with faculty in a one-on-one setting, and the University has a lot of resources to help students who aren't so advanced. It's a nice mix of intellectual variety—the smart students can be challenged while other students can feel that they aren't left behind. Unless you get into a top ten school or are uniquely suited for a liberal arts environment, you're wasting your time and money if you go anywhere else.
