  • I went to college here, and honestly best school ever! I have a BA in Communication, and Iā€™m returning this year to get a Master of Health Administration. Everything is good, such as food, exercise facilities, professors, and social events. Pitt also helps you get an internship with their internship-guarantee program. If you go to Pitt you definitely need to do that! I did three internships and one research fellowships during college. The school is nationally ranked, always a top 100 university on US World News and Report (I think Pitt is #66 this year). School of Public Health (which Iā€™m going to attend) is a top 20 public health school.
  • Just a poor quality university. The people in charge here are only looking out for themselves, not the students. In my time at Pitt, I had to deal with many hardships that could have easily been avoided if the employees, faculty and staff had decided that they wanted to help me, a student. I would not recommend people come here and I can't wait to leave this place.
  • Students here seem to have little to know tolerance for anyone who is not a Progressive leftist. Like many colleges, they preach about diversity and inclusion, but when it comes to diversity of thoughts and ideas, they simply do not care.
  • Another university-corporation. All they care about is making profit. Who gives a **** after students got ripped off, after graduation and have a deep debt? They not only rip students off they also rip professors off. Just look around how many lecturers there are. You pay your tuition+mandatory fees, dorm and meal plan charges and get ripped off like how car dealerships marked up both parts, labor and time.. They only care how the board of directors climb their **** ladders, get mansions in Fox Chapel and how much the people on the top get paid. They said they care about us student but they actually do not give a ****. The key word: status quo. Exploiting already-in-debt students in various and numerous ways. Financial aid claims "they are poor" and give out **** aid packages meanwhile Pitt has >1B of endowment and taking in taxpayer $$. Normal student from middle class family will have to take on maximum loans and still have to pay 15k out of pocket somewhere meanwhile the chancellor earns like 1M a year. They kept on investing in lands, expanding campus size (probably do not pay any land tax) and build new buildings instead of helping students out. Tuition: Some people are racist as ****. Class quality is sh*t. Engineering and math professors literally reading off the textbook and have no clue how to teach. Lectures are monotonic and bored to death. Remember to bring Red Bull or Monster. Lots of them. Dorm: No air conditioner, super hot beginning of fall and end of spring. Internet (wireless or wired) is slow as **** cannot even stream a 120p youtube video. Meal Plan: A chicken burger sells for 4 dollars (and it also tasted horrible and unhealthy) meanwhile McDonalds sells 1 dollar McChicken tasted way better (Granted it is also not healthy). Weekend brunch eggs are cold and meat tasted like expired ****. Dining hall food tasted like **** without much option.
  • The best campus gorgeous buildings (cathedral of learning) my future med school. H2P! šŸ‘ŠšŸ¼
