University of Pittsburgh Reviews
Review University of Pittsburgh
This is a pretty great college. There are numerous classes that anyone can choose from depending on their interests and their major. Their medical part of the college is outstanding! Many of the professors are wonderful, but you will get some of the awful ones. The campus is gorgeous, especially Cathy (the Cathedral of Learning). No matter how difficult the classes are you will forever be in love with the University of Pittsburgh.
I love this school! I got my bachelor's degree here, and I'm returning to Pitt this year to receive my graduate degree. University of Pittsburgh offers a great education, and students graduate with great job prospectives. The application process for both undergrad and grad schools were long and tedious, but fairly easy to understand. The application fee for undergrad was cheap, while the application fee for grad school was very expensive. However, since I love this school, the fee doesn't bother me. Students that attend this school are very smart - they are top 25% of their high school class. When finals are approaching, everybody is studying! You see students study in the classrooms, on the grass, in dunkin donuts, on the bus... everywhere! If you want to go to a school that has a high standard of education and produces graduates that work at top companies, University of Pittsburgh is your answer!
There is not much that you can’t do at Pitt. Hundreds of clubs and organizations, many scholarships available, research labs, a plethora of study abroad programs, and a fantastic Career Development office that works to help the students find internships and jobs. As an ACC school, Pitt plays some top competition across several sports and student sections for football and basketball are electric, all at the cheap price of $5/ticket. Everyone I have interacted with, whether it be professors, administrators, or the workers at the dining halls have a genuine appreciation for working at Pitt and always have a cheerful spirit, which is refreshing especially when academics can make things stressful. Proximity to Carnegie Mellon University allows for dual enrollment opportunities, and with free public transportation for students there is access to the unique culture of all of the city of Pittsburgh, from its numerous museums, restaurants, and theatres. It is truly a one-of-a kind university.
