"Save everything! I know you can go on-line and see all the transcripts, tuition statements, etc. online, but PRINT and KEEP copies for yourself. My experience as a student at UMB was amazing. I had some great professors, gained useful experience with hands-on research work, report writing, and clinical assessment skills. I still keep in contact with several of my professors and talk about these experiences in job interviews 5 years later. I felt at ease at UMass, taking classes with other people that really seemed to take classes seriously, many people working a job or two, raising a family, all while taking classes. Real people. BUT the administrative side of UMB is the worst. I graduated with honors, received awards at ceremonies, walked across the stage, only to be told a month later in a letter that I didn't have enough credits to graduate. I knew I had taken enough classes and when I went on-line to check, some credits were removed from my transcript, but luckily I had printed back-ups proving I had taken all the classes. Trying to talk to the registrar's office put me in tears (the woman straight up insulted me). I ended up talking to my school's dean and assistant dean and they were able to help me. It was a huge issue and after talking to others who graduated from UMB, they all had similar stories of administration issues causing delays in their graduation. Do I regret going to UMB? Not at all, I loved it. Would I keep hard copies of every little thing they sent me? Absolutely."
