Student (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – October 13, 2015
I just had a rough time while at UNLV. It started with them claiming me as a non-resident, when I had lived in Nevada for more than 6 years, then it just continued with me having to pay for more schooling because I was just not getting the classwork, no matter how hard I tried to. I just did not have a good experience overall when I attended. I do hope that others who choose to attend have a better experience than I did, but I will not go back.
Learned alot about the Internal Administrative workings at UNLV.
