This is a downright terrible school. It is full of grossly incompetent people that should of never been allowed into a university from the beginning. VCU is nothing more than show without substance. Most of these negative comments are absolutely true. The "campus" is more of an idea than anything else as it's intertwined into the disgusting and dilapidated streets of Richmond, VA. Let's not forget the rampant crime that goes on around the VCU campus, but since its an urban "campus" most of such never goes reported to the greater university. Student live in slum like apartments surrounding the campus, and the school itself only cares about ONE thing: more money for staff and administration. And for those comments saying this school is what you make of it, that couldn't be more dishonest and it alone reflects how garbage of an education this place is; i.e. if you go to this school don't expect employers to respect the degree as it is simply considered inferior to more respected schools in the region that produce more desirable graduates. People only go to this school because its the only place they got into, or it's simply a means to get a cheap (and you get what you pay for) degree for commuters. VCU is not anyone's first choice, no matter what anyone will try to tell you. Don't let any rankings fool you for certain programs either, it's generally the same state of incompetence and lack of appropriate funds across the board at this school. And lastly, MCV is not VCU, and people understand the difference between the two. Please, go to any school in Virginia that's not VCU, unless you consider grossness, mediocrity, and guys in skinny jeans a way of life.
