What is your overall opinion of this school?

It’s a joke school to employers. I see pre-med and pre-law students snorting coke all the time. It’s ranking dropped to 57 and I’m thinking of leaving because I don’t think any of these kids are getting into good medical or law schools. And I don’t want to be one of them. The reputation is that you’re a rich idiot who couldn’t afford to go somewhere better and I don’t know why I picked this place. Only go here if you want to party and then not get a job or go to graduate school

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If you are looking for a school that feels like being on vacation, but also has plenty of available spaces to crack open your textbook for your next exam, look no further. Although there are some downsides, note the lack of parking and expensive off-campus living, there is definitely a scene for everyone to have a good time and a surplus of educational opportunities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Speaking specifically about my department... I would say that the academics were subpar and not worth the money that you pay for tuition. Two of my professors were good researchers but poor teachers. NO engaging discussions. I wouldn't even call it a lectures. Not sure what my professors were doing but often times I sat in class wondering if the President of the University was aware of the low quality of education and teaching in my class. I would not recommend this university and it would be a poor choice for International students. It's outrageous how international students are not provided a lot support within the community. My department had difficulties understanding the procedures for I20 which ended up causing me a lot of grief. Don't expect a lot of support from the school if you are experiencing difficulties adjusting to the area. You're not going to get it. The school will take your money and then will have nothing to do with you once you've paid your tuition. In terms of the community: Unsafe. High car accident fatalities. When you drive along the US 1 to school, you will see the many flowers/ or wreaths planted along the roadway in memory of people who have died in car accidents. Expect to at least get into one car accident or two a year. I was in two car accidents. The first accident was on campus by a person texting and driving. Expect at least one murder in the area. And I say 'at least.' An international student who lived in the apartments very close to the university was robbed and stabbed to death in his home. Miami is unsafe period. Do not trust their off-campus housing website. I had the unfortunate experience of renting from a landlord who posted a listing on the UM website. This person ended up being a drug user and scam artist. Yes, I lost some of my rental deposit when I had to move and after I found out she was a scammer and a thief. UM does not take any responsibility or filter who or what posts housing listing on their website. So again, unsafe. In terms of the community... If you are not bilingual or speak Spanish... Good luck. Moved to Miami and found it difficult to even go into stores. Sometimes store associates were not able to help me when I needed assistance because often times I was told in English that they didn't speak English. Same thing with uber. Many times had to take an Uber to school or out in the community and sometimes only got Spanish Speaking drivers. I will say that the campus is beautiful but not worth the headache of attending the university. There are so many better universities that you can attend and it's not the University of Miami.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Miami has a "play hard, work hard mentality". Students grind during the weekdays and relax and party on the weekends. The university is strategically placed, where Miami nightlife is pronounced with a balance of the quiet neighborhood of Coral Gables.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

WE GOT SOME CANES OVER HERE WHOOSH WHOOSH. If Drake came to this school to shoot the music video for God's Plan, then you should come too. The spirit and pride that current students as well as alumni have when they go to football games and events speaks volumes about how well this insitution treats its students. Although no school is perfect, the pros most definetely outweigh the cons in regards to UM. The academics are challenging, but there's nothing a little time management can't help. Also the city of Miami itself is beautiful and there are a plethora of things that you can do off campus. You can hit south beach, go clubbing in Brickell, eat at 5 star restaurants downtown, experience Cuban culture and cuisine on Calle Ocho the list goes on and on... The school is in the very safe suburb of Coral Gables; you honestly don't even need to leave the campus to live happily because this campus has everything. Greek life isn't huge, but it's definitely present. The split between greeks and non-greeks is around 40/60, so you don't need to be in a frat or sorority to feel included at Miami. Go Canes.

Great school with many opportunities. There are plenty of clubs to get involved. If there isn't a club for you it is very easy to make one. The housing is livable. The environment in the dorms is very friendly and there are always events that housing puts on to involve students. There is a community for everyone to feel welcome here, Canes care for Canes!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If you are willing to do anything at the U, the university will figure out a way to make it happen. It is expensive, but a great school, good teachers, and the student life is thriving. Personally, I have always loved the U, but it wasn't my first choice, and I wasn't theirs. They deferred me to the spring when I applied for the fall, but that wasn't as bad as I thought it would've been. It is a little awkward to get involved, just as it is anywhere, but there is nothing to be afraid of because it is a very welcoming environment​.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely LOVE the University of Miami. It is an amazing school with great academics. Many people believe that our school still holds its party label from the early 2000s, but we have evolved to an up and coming research institution that values its academics before everything else.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Its a good school academically but the staff in the administration offices are apathetic and uncaring. I learned a lot from the teachers but when I needed help in Financial Aid and Student Accounts, they were dry and unhelpful. I experienced a lot of stress over that. The students are a very diverse population which is great and there is an active party scene.
