Not necessarily true. I LOVED UG there! And, I don't know anyone personally who didn't love it. If I remember, you go/went to FIU, which probably means you're from the Miami area, which also probably means your friends that went to Miami were commuters. There is a very large population (in UG anyway) of students from out of state, which included myself and everyone I knew at school. There is a huge disparity between commuters and people from out of state, and they don't seem to comingle at all. Perhaps, the commuters have a different view of the school? I don't know if this holds true at Miami Law, but just thought I'd offer a different perspective.

I actually don't like the surrounding area that much, which is why I moved after UG. But the school is beautiful and I loved the closed campus atmosphere. I went to UF for grad school, and much prefer Miami's campus over UF's.
