Academics: The university is distinguished for being the best in Puerto Rico. The academics area is tough, but totally possible. Plus, every year they have a job fair where you can apply for interships and its a great way to start networking.

Although its great to know what other students read and interpreted I like to hear from the professor's experience and knowledge/
