    Students who look to Umass Amherst as a qualifier on their list of possible schools should consider one necessary factor before enrollement: money; specifically the money received in financial aid, scholarships, and alternative student loans. Although the Univerisity's reputation and academic performance has been steadfast increasing over the years, so does its cost of attendance. I will commend Umass Amherst for its continued insurance to the students in providing the best opputunities, academic courses, and food (trust me, it's as good as they say it is), however there is lack of financial support for students who face low-income situations/ lack the requirements necessary for private loans due to parental credit. I myself struggled my first year coming up with the money to continue enrolling and still face an almost impediment fear of not being able to attend my next semester, which is why I'm being so blunt and honest while writing this review. The University is amazing, and I have no doubt students will love their time spent while being here, but I just want to put out an advisory to those who see this place as their perspective future in education if money is a prevelant issue they face.

    This is a very big school, so if you feel like you need a lot of individual attention or you enjoy small professor to student ratios, then pick another school! The amazing thing about the size is that there are so many different kinds of people that you meet and it’s very easy to find a group of friends that you will love throughout your time here. Also, there are many options for majors and minors, so if you aren’t sure what you want to study, UMass Amherst is a great place to figure it out.

    Get involved with as many different aspects of the college as possible. I know everyone says this, but getting involved early will help you find lifelong friends and find interests in things you may have never even known about before coming to school.
