I hate this place. Do not come here if you want to make friends in ways other than partying. People at UVA are so focused on their career plans that they don't spend time getting to know many people. Throughout life I never had trouble having friends, but I feel like I have no friends at UVA (ok a few).

The coursework is also very challenging and many of the classes are large, so many tests are scantron based. I always do worse on multiple choice tests than written/essay/short answer tests, so this really harms me. I feel like the only thing going for me in the prospects of finding a job is UVA's name.

To make matters worse, the housing and dining situations at UVA are not impressive. UVA housing is spread out far away from classes and the dining hall food is terrible. Please just go somewhere else while you have the chance.
