Basically the thread title says it all. I'm a senior in high school in Philly, but have family in RI and I want to apply to URI, I just want to know how hard it is to get into, or any details about the school itself from anyone on here who may have gone or have any knowledge about the University.


Thanks.

I don't think URI is particularly hard to get into. I wouldn't be too concerned about that. Instead, you should do your homework regarding the quality of education you'll be getting. URI is a bit of a mixed bag, there are departments which are quite decent and others might be lacking a bit. It really depends on your choice of major.

URI is also a commuter school which opens up an entirely different can of worms. Parking, traffic, etc. The university has a beautiful campus though and feels pretty safe. And it's close to the various beaches which might have a negative impact on your education while being beneficial to your social life.

Decisions, decisions.
