I am in love with this school. The atmosphere, the teachers, the sports. Its a lovable school. The other thing I wish was different is that they would help students that are out of state with tuition.

I truly love my school and enjoy many of my classes here at Ole Miss. The biggest problem is the classes, like Organic Chemistry, they expect you to fail. Failing then causes you to lose scholarships and you are so worried about paying for school you can't focus on your grades. There is not a lot of help for the regular middle class family and the financial aid office is extremely rude about it.
