Question: Im from Texas and have around a 3.0 gpa, top 50% of class, 1480 on sat ( cr+m:1000) majoring in nursing. id really like to go to college somewhere in Colorado and based on out of state tuition and admission stats, UCCS seems to be a reasonable fit. i havent had an opportunity to visit campus and the information i know i have gathered off the internet, so id like to hear more from students and alumni pls! is it hard to get in, do i have a chance? do they offer financial aid for out of state students? are the professors helpful? iv read that it is a commuter school and there is Absolutely no social life at UCCS, is this true? im not looking for a party school but i do want to enjoy my college experience and not be bored to death or miserable. will it be hard to make friends since it is a commuter school? what are the activities, shopping,restaurants, nearby cities around like?does the city offer good internship opportunities? Overall (Cost,academics,socially, and city wise) is UCCS a good school for an out of state student with my academics standings, is it a wise choice? if not, do u have any other suggestions, prefably in Colorado? Any advice or Feedback would be awesome! please and thank you :)

Well, first, I'm going to be going to UCCS in January, so I can't comment much on campus life, but there are about 900 people living on campus, and I have no doubt you'll get in. I had a 2.8 high school GPA and a 30 on the ACT and was accepted, but looking online, it seems you can pretty much get in if you have decent grades or a decent ACT/SAT, and you seem to have both. I've visited the campus, and it's really nice, but a little spread out. UCCS is going to be cheaper than CU-Boulder, CSU, Colorado College, and most other universities in Colorado, except for maybe CU-Denver and UNC. They're building another dorm building and are making a lot of efforts to attract 'traditional' students, but I imagine you won't have any trouble making friends; you will be living with 1 to 3 other people after all. Also, the dorms are better than CU-Boulder's and UNC's. That's about all of the questions I can answer for you, but if you're interested in other schools, I'd say CU-Boulder, CSU, of maybe DU, but DU is very expensive.

i live in the springs, but not a student. I think the cost of living of pretty high here. You might be able to share a house with some people or if you got a roomie you'd be ok.

Silvester Originally Answered: Which school is better University of Houston or Northeastern University?
Northeastern is ranked better overall than Houston. Since Northeastern's private, it might or might not be more expensive than Houston. I'd say more than likely Houston will be cheaper, assuming you live in Texas. I know Houston isn't that expensive to begin with, and a few of my friends got good financial aid packages. I think the big difference comes in where you want to live post-college. If you want to stay in Texas, then Houston is the school you should go to. If you want to stay in Massachusetts, then Northeastern is the place. The main bad thing I've heard about Houston is that it's a commuter school and that kids aren't particularly active with the school. The bad thing about Northeastern is that it's overshadowed by really good schools, like Harvard, MIT, BC, Boston U, etc... and the best internships and jobs go to them first and the Northeastern kids tend to get the table scraps. If I had to rank Texas schools, I'd go Rice (small gap), UT (slightly bigger gap), A&M (biggest gap), SMU TCU Houston. So there are a few schools better than Houston, but not as many as Northeastern.
