Only go to this school if you absolutely have to. If you're not an art or med student, the programs can be really hit or miss. Don't get me wrong, there are a few really great departments (mine is), but others… not so much. Like others have said, VCU is a money machine and you are nothing more than a number to them to take cash from into their pockets, taking no thought to allocate that money to academics and departments. The administration is useless and leaves you to basically handle everything on your own, you might as well talk to a brick wall if you even think about going to them for help with anything. The school is far too crowded, as it accepts all the leftovers and rejects who couldn't get in any other university… these are the same people who slacked off in high school and you can definitely tell. The student body is depressingly full of underacheivers (who allows these people into a university in the first place is beyond me), who are closed off, cliqey and in their own bubble. There is no school spirit whatsoever.Kiss the idea of a typical college town experience goodbye if you come here. I hate the campus and Richmond with a passion—dirty, eyesore, disgusting, cramped, crime ridden, full of sh*tty people, overall not the best place to be. If you care about a quality education, good individual value, and a real college experience, you might want to look elsewhere.
