What are the academics like at your school?


I am pursuing a B.S. Biology with a Chemistry minor. UP Biology is probably the largest major within the College of Arts and Sciences. Although UP says that they have a pre-med program, it is very undeveloped and is not useful in preparing a student for Pre-med/ Graduate school. As far as professors I think that it is similar to most schools, you have your good professors and your bad professors. One thing that is nice about UP being small is you get to develop relationships with your professors and they not only get to know your name, but get to know you as a person.
