University of Miami is One of America's Most Stressful Schools

For a school that used to be known as one of America's greatest institutes of outdoor tanning practices the University of Miami has certainly improved its academic standings on President Donna Shalala. Though with that heightened emphasis on academic prestige comes more stress for students, and the school finds itself on The Daily Beast's list of America's 50 most stressful schools.

The Beast rated the schools based on cost ,competitiveness, acceptance rate, engineering program and crime on campus.

UM came in at number 41, higher than it's U.S. News and World Reports rating of 47, with these statistics:

Tuition rank: 30th

Acceptance rate rank: 35th

Competitiveness rank: 49th

Engineering rank: 42nd

Crime rank: 17th

Ah well, it actually seems that the school's crime rankings is doing the heavy lifting here, which maybe isn't something to be all that proud about. Just remember though Hurricanes, no one can rob you of your great tan. So relieve some stress sitting in the sun next weekend and get back to the Suntan U basics.
