Most Helpful Review for University of Minnesota-Twin Cities
  • Category: Am learning a lot
  • Review by: Donald from Norwood, MN

If you are willing to spend the time, the professors are more than willing to help you out. Some of the classes are hard and require after class work, but in the end it's all worth it. They don't restrict you on what you can / can't take. It's up to you. They have great tools that allow you to plan out your entire four or five year schedule and it shows you just want you need to take to receive your degree.

    The University of Minnesota is a great place to advance your knowledge and to challenge yourself as a student. The location of the university is perfect since there is so much going on around you while attending here, that leaves so many opportunities for site-seeing, jobs, volunteer positions, pretty much anything you can think of. It has given me opportunities that most students don't have and opportunities that I wouldn't have been able to experience if I attended any other university.

    This school is a great place to meet people and learn how to manage your time and money as you prepare to become an adult, but it also has tons of rather serious flaws, so if you don't have a lot of cash to spare you might want to go somewhere cheaper. Normandale Community college, also in MN, is a fantastic place and much more affordable. All of the other U of M reviews are glowing to the point of being unbelievable, but that bias rubs me the wrong way, so here's what I experienced from Fall '06 to Spring '10.
