University at Buffalo Top Questions

What kind of person should not attend this school?


As I answered on the previous quesion. UB is a very competitve university. Therefore, people that aren't willing to spend a lot of time on academics, and have fun in extracurricular activities will not be prepared to attend this school. Speaking on extracurricular activities, UB have a student government that runs by students. Many clubs were formed and still increasing in number. In other words, there are tons of extracurricular activities for students to participate. People who know how to manage their time are well fit for University at Buffalo.


I personally don't think there is a kind of person who should not attend this school. The school is very diverse and there are many kinds of people from all over the U.S. and many that come form over seas. Maybe if a person cannot stand the could then UB is not the school for you becasue it is freezing at least 75% of the time we are here.
