Major: Economics (This Major's Salary over time)
Econ professors are a bunch of great people. Learned a lot there. Otherwise, garbage school for mostly garbage students. For every one student generally invested in their education, there are three who just want to coast.

The Honors College is a joke of a program for snotty introverts who like to pretend that graduating with honors from Longwood means something. Admissions to Honors is also a joke; I was offered a spot coming out of high school with a 2.8 GPA just because I scored 2100 on my SATs. High SAT scores don't necessarily mean that you're a good student, and I know I wasn't one coming out of high school. As a consequence, the Honors dorm is full of pseudo-intellectual UVA/Tech/W&M rejects who like to look down on non-honors students and consider fingerpainting in the dorm lobby to be the height of recreation.

Best decision of my life was transferring to UVA. A Longwood degree is worth less than the paper it's printed on in today's climate in which every John Doe has a degree from State U.

Isn't UVA a State U
