What Students Are Saying

3.86 Average Rating
The ambient and city surrounding UM contribute a completely unique cultural experience the likes of which are cannot be found any where else in the world. The academic environment is lackluster, and those seeking a truly rigorous scholastic curriculum should not consider UM one of their primary choices. University of Miami is a university with a lot to offer but requires that students be diligent and completely independent in the process of finding their passion.
BME from Miami, FL
At Miami, it really is all about the U. U are treated as an individual student with personalized attention from top professors, incredible opportunities, and amazing tools to help you succeed in all aspects. With the fabulous weather and super friendly and happy people and atmosphere, you will quickly realize why its GREAT TO BE A MIAMI HURRICANE.
