Worst school, dont comeAverageComputer Science
Worst school, dont come here, if i could leave and go to a different school i would. The faculty here are just to collect your money and not care about you. They wont refund you. Their registration and parking are the worst. High school registration is about the same if not better.

Question
The business office fucked me over.Quite BrightPhilosophy
The business office fucked me over. HARD. Before the year, (i am currently a freshman) i set up an appointment with the financial aid and business office to discuss the cost of the school. they told me it would cost me a set amount "for the year" including scholarships. What they did not tell me is that by "year" they meant the end of the actual year, 2012. So because of this, i am paying an additional $9,000. Whether it be a misunderstanding or what, it is highly irresponsible of them to not cover the TOTAL price of the school, and to leave any doubt about the amount of money one is going to spend. I am definitely transferring after this year. For those who are reading this, I recommend you look elsewhere. The staff seems incomp?tent, and there is no sense of school spirit, or pride. Belmont is a ghost town with no night life or day life. Going to safeway every day gets real old real fast. You can do better then giving your hard earned money to this institution.

Question
AverageHistory/Histories (art history/etc.)
I am currently a freshman, and I am planning to transfer at the end of the year. There is absolutely nothing to do...The housing rules are extremely strict, yet they were never made clear upon attendance. They people are very friendly and the professors are always willing to help you, but it is not very challenging. The small environment feels very much like high school. This is not for everyone. If you are looking for the traditional college experience, look further. The RA's can be dictatorial, and parties get rolled fast.
