Question
I should have applied to more places.Quite BrightOther
I should have applied to more places. I wouldn't have come here if I knew how boring this place would be. Not only is it in "Merdead," but my fellow classmates are just as boring as the town. I'm from a big city, so I'm used to more excitement than this town can offer. My recommendation to high school students and transfer students: yes, this school is as bas as people say it is. Don't come here if you can help it. You'll regret it later.

Question
The administrators in financial aid, registrar's office, andBrightBiology
The administrators in financial aid, registrar's office, and the school of natural sciences are all very little help. They essentially tell you to figure things out for yourself, and tend to abandon you when you're in need of help. Sometimes it takes over a week to receive a response from the people working in the offices.It is unfortunate, because the teachers and faculty are great at this school, but the employees outside of that are useless. I would not recommend anybody look towards attending UC Merced.
