I love the University of Virginia! Grounds are beautiful, and so many interesting classes are offered. I am going to double major in music and bio/neuroscience, and there are so many options available to me. The student body is very large and so anyone can find a group of people they love and fit in with. The classes and professors are great, and I will agree that there are many reasons why UVA is highly esteemed.

Academics are amazing, and UVA is consistently ranked in the top 3 public schools in the country! The class registration process is a bit of a hassle, but everything always works out in the end. Professors are very engaging and generally care about the topics they teach. Libraries are great resources and excellent study spaces, some of which even have coffee shops and cafes. Workload is challenging but manageable, and time management is key! Curriculum is extremely extensive and well rounded, ranging from foreign languages to sciences to business, and give students a truly well rounded education.

UVa is the best school imaginable for me! Before applying I didn't care much for the school, in fact I despised so. With some influential help from friends and family, I decided to go there and it was the best decision I've ever made. I've made so many personal connections with students, professors, etc. Not only does everyone focus on their academics, they also know how to do the social aspect of college correctly too, which will prep anyone for the real world.
