“UofA”
November 2018CURRENT STUDENT
Uppers

Great weather, some amazing professors and great options out of the medical business or engineering school.

Downers

Outside of those colleges they don't offer much help to students in the job search.

Comments

U of A is amazing, it's definitely got a superficial level to it, but if you find the right people you wont get sucked into it.

Professors are willing to help anybody with questions. They don't tolerate cheating.

Quality of Life

Nice environment, people are friendly and everything looks in good shape and clean.

Admissions

Upon applying to business school, you are required to submit a resume and a cover letter. A test is given about Business M ath and Accounting afterwards there is an interview of about two people asking questions about why you want to go to Business School. If you do well on both the test and the interview you get accepted or else they'll allow you to take the test a second chance and if still you do not pass it then that's it. You have to wait till next semester to reapply.

I just recomend anyone to expect the heavy amount of homework. My advice is to get tutoring, such as going to the think tank or to instructors' offices hours.

Quality of Life

Living on campus is expensive, that's why I live at home with my family. The library is easy to access and you do ot have to be a former U of A student to use the computers there.

Admissions

The application process is straight forward, the only thing an applicant may get stuck at is writing a good personal statement. Students get the opportunity of receiving financial aid and even the Arizona Assurance Scholarship which covers about everything a student needs.

I enjoyed my major classes the most. My classes were small because my major was small, it was a close community in which we could rely on each other and gain support from our teachers.

Quality of Life

I recommend living off campus at an apartment, that is not university owned because it is cheaper and there is more space.

Admissions

I made the decision for my major before i attended college, the problem was finding the right college that offered my major. To apply for a college, fill out the application and all that is required for admittance to the college.

You have to take a set of general education courses before you start your major courses. Most of the faculty are great and always show to their office hours. In the general education courses, class sizes are very large. They have about 75-150 students.

Quality of Life

The U of A was a wonderful school. I enjoyed every moment of my time at the school. The campus is alive and always has something to do. Going to U of A sporting events was one of my favorite activities. The cost of living is reasonable and they are plenty of off-campus housing options.

Admissions

I had to write an essay to accompany my application.

Foundation and/or general education courses consist of Tier One and Tier Two Natural Science, Individuals and Societies and Traditions cultures, as well as Humanities and Arts courses, respectively. The class sizes, as is expected for a large university are large in NATS, TRAD, and INDV courses, whereas English Composition and the accompanying discussion sections are otherwise small, and are generally limited to twenty students. As for major division courses, such as those required for my Spanish major, class sizes are small, and well-structured. There are an innumerable amount of academic opportunities for both high-achieving and motivated students, including several readily accessible resources for study abroad programs, major selection, competitive honors courses, and research opportunities.

Quality of Life

Housing facilities, as well as the surrounding entertainment, dining, and various other venues throughout the Tucson community are more that sufficient, and fantastic for college students.

Admissions

Unique application questions combined with an online application and the eventual informing of a regular decision and the offering of a scholarship
