Back ground of this school.BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
Back ground of this school. Very uninspiring, ghetto, and trashy. People who attend this school are junkies and welfare queens who rape the system of money and have the nerve to judge any real college student. Ghetto school, ghetto students and not a good learning environment for the students who want to make progress our community.

Question
I have to say that the school isQuite BrightBiology
I have to say that the school is great IF you don't have any financial need. Financial aid help Is VERY VERY POOR. I have been in this school for two years and Financial Aid has been late EVERY single semester I've been there, and EVERYONE that I know that needs financial aid help has had major problems with their finacial aid being processed. We've gotten financial aid a month before school ends (VERY LATE). It's the beggining of the semester and once again they're already behind processing financial aid. The LMC website claims they have a new payment calendar for financial aid posted on web advisor, that you get the first payment the first week of the semester, and the second mid semester now. However, it's just stated, it's not factual because if your an actual student you'll know that they don't even have the new calendar posted yet, AND they haven't even processed award letters (NOT SURPRISED). Needless to say it's not true we're getting a payment the first week because they haven't done their job on time AGAIN. One semester they kept giving me the run around. Mid semester I went to ask WHY has my finacial aid not been processed AGAIN?? They kept telling me a different story every time (Come in two weeks, another two weeks, in 3 weeks). I talked to the student body President today, he confirmed that it's one of the most popular problems he hears. I think it's important for all students who need help to know not to hold their breath on Financial Aid, and they also need to know that they only make it look like things are up and running on the LMC website http://www.losmedanos.edu/ but in reality Finacial Aid is behind on everything habitually. It feels like they don't care about us, because if they did they'd know we're struggling and need the Financial aid on time, afterall we're all in financial aid because we need it.

Question
I transferred from ChabotQuite BrightOther
I transferred from Chabot College. I like Los Medanos SOOOO much better. I am a Child Development major and the teachers here are awesome. They know their stuff and they really motivate you to learn because they are very passionate about teaching young children!
