I really think that UNM was right for me for many reasons. First of all, I really like Albuquerque. It is my hometown, and I just really like it here. Second, the school is big and has a lot of school spirit. Overall, UNM is a great school for many reasons and has a lot to offer. Each person has different wants and needs, but for me, I really am glad I decided to go to UNM.
UNM is cheap for New Mexico residents, something to consider if you intend on paying for a house, car, or graduate/professional school. The campus could have been built in a better part of Albuquerque, though. The size of the school is fantastic because you can have whatever experience you want. If you want to be noticed there are classes of 10-25 people, but if you want to fade into the background and skip class then there are 850 people classes. UNM is definitely the best recognized university in New Mexico, with top academic and athletic programs compared to the surrounding schools. The physical campus is beautifully landscaped, some really old buildings seem trashy, but there are lots of brand new buildings as well. The dorms are disgusting, so most people live off campus. There are plenty of opportunities to take part in school functions and organizations.
Best thing...latino student support One thing to change...parking situation Size...school is just right I suppose Reaction...not much, it's more impressive for people to hear that i'm in law school Time spent on campus...the law school and El Centro de la Raza (great place) College town...not really, especially after NMSU Admin...great group of people but we need more hiring of minority professors Controversy...the one I cared about was when the Mexican flag was ripped down after a 16 de septiembre celebrationand UNM did not do much to discipline the "gentleman" who did it! School pride...NO, don't see it much outside of sports events and burning an Aggie (which seems kind of morbid to me) Unusual...the way admin allows students to receive 3 credits for a class which lasts 2 weeks and does not need much effort put into it. This seems to de-value a person's degree if fthey take too many of these courses. Experience...my extracurricular activities outside of the law school and through MALSA Complaints...parking
