I wouldn’t mind the nasty comments that are clearly left by salty conservatives. The campus is beautiful. The academics/professors are some of the nations best. Enough said. Go bears!
School's reputation speaks for itself. It's a great undergraduate program, although known worldwide more for its graduate programs, many of which are top 5 in the world. There are so many undergraduates that it can sometimes feel impersonal, but joining on campus groups and making friends in the dorms can mitigate that. There's not much grade inflation like at the Ivy League schools, so if you do poorly in a course, you can easily get a D or F, whereas at Ivies the professors likely wouldn't give lower than a C-. Can be tough academically.
