    Jorge -

    Sadly this is typical of most state schools in the U.S. The instructors rarely (if ever) have any idea about how admissions works and aren't supposed to advise on that. The admissions advisors are overworked and have little idea about each program.

    Sort of comes with the territory.

    I have to disagree with you Robert, I went to UT in San Antonio and I could not have found more helpful and willing proffesors. Granted they could not tell me where in the building I had to go do the paperwork, but they were willing to sit with me, talk about the program, asked me what my interests were, why I wanted to study chemistry, etc, etc. IOW they were actually glad to see someone who had an interest. I find the attitude of carelesness at U of A disconcerting, specially since you are not there because you want to be a famous photographer but merely because you want to learn!I would have thought they would welcome a student like you....not discourage you with a superiority attitude. But what do I know.....?

    Well Jorge, I do have to add that my fiancee' who has over 13 years of experience as an RN was told to take a flying leap by the nursing school there when she applied for the ADN to MSN program.

    Why?

    Because she is English.

    And at the same time the were asking the state for funds because the RN program was only 1/2 full....

    Go figure....

    So now she is pre-med there (they were nicer to here in pre-med) and is getting a 3.8 gpa....

    Jesus Christ Robert no wonder tuition there is cheap! who would want to go to school there?! Ah well at least things worked out better for you and your fianceé. Sometimes things happen for a reason and the good guys win...
