I really hate this university. I came here to do a post-bac program so i would be prepared to take my MCATS and they just don't have it together. I graduated from Virginia Tech right before i came here and i cannot tell you how different the schools are. At VT everyone is so friendly, school spirit is awesome, the campus is pretty,the food is SO GOOD, and parties are so easy to come by and everyone is welcome to go. I was not a social person before i went there, but i left as an outgoing person and a huge football fan! Here, I have not made any friends since everyone walks around like they are dead. Students are not very welcoming and I have not seen ANY school spirit or any emotions for that matter, the campus is ugly since it is in the middle of the city, oh i could go on and on! I had so many problems getting into the classes i needed since they were all at the same time and basically had no other options. Right now, i am taking two classes, and they are both at 8 am since that was the only time they were offered. Lets just say my life sucks right now. I cannot wait to get out of here, i am not even going to finish my program, i am leaving after this semester. (no i'm not kidding, it's that bad) If i were you, i would apply somewhere else. If you don't get in, go to community college for a year and then transfer. Believe me, you will like community college more than this place.
