Your experience with Mt SAC (and any otherQuite BrightComputer Science
Your experience with Mt SAC (and any other school for that matter) will largely depend on what YOU are bringing to the table. If you are coming just to have fun, hang out, and chill, prepare to be disappointed, because the professors will make you work (surprise!) - and you will earn your grades... or flake out and whine like so many people. The reason so many students are dropped is actualyl out of mercy: would you rather get a real reflection of your non-existant attendance or flaky work (as in F-grade)? I came to Mt SAC looking for thorough instruction and I was ready to work; two semesters later, I would not pick another school. Mt SAC is one of the very few schools on the West Coast that offers cybersecurity classes, and it can be as fun as you allow it to be... do your part. As far as the professors, do not torment the poor people and they will be nice to you. (That said, do check out the ratemyprofessors.com site, there are a few professors that pose a bit more of a challenge as far as getting along with them goes ;-)).

Question
If you decide to attend the SAC thenBiology
If you decide to attend the SAC then get ready for the long haul. I've spent the last three years of full time study reaching calculus. The education that is acquired is outstanding in my opinion and the classes are pretty informative so there is always another class to take. Even after graduation/transfer.

Question
Granted, I was fresh out of hs inBrightOther
Granted, I was fresh out of hs in 1982, wasn't quite sure what direction to study in, but I remember my time at MSAC very well. Walnut was still quite rural at that time, there were still wide open spaces and green hills, very different than how it is in 2009. I was cool with that. However, many of the teachers were quite arrogant and condescending. I was talked down to so many times it was insane. OK, this was 25 years ago, and the school is probably very different now, I really don't know. The demographics of the area are very different now, for sure, so that may have an impact on things. Still, the bad memories linger...
