Most Helpful Review for University of Miami

The University of Miami is the perfect well-rounded school. Not many places with strong athletic traditions and vibrant party scenes offer strong academics, but UM is definitely one of them. There are no slack majors here. The professors are all leaders in their field and constantly challenge students with tough work loads. UM is definitely competitive academically and the small class sizes enhance your classroom learning experience. It is a school on rise as far as academics go. Each incoming class is more and more selective.

    It is a good school, but a bit overrated and overpriced compared to the hype it is given around these parts.

    It's a lot of fun. The diversity is incredible. The cost is ridiculus.

    UM is a great University with a great sense of School pride. The academics are great as well. For those who do not party, the party culture is very overwhelming.
