This school is HORRIBLE! Do not waste yourNot so brightBiology
This school is HORRIBLE! Do not waste your time here. The financial aid workers constantly played around with my scholarship, then refused to fix it even after I showed proof that I received a full ride. I was constantly getting holds placed on my account for no reason. I tried to contact administration about my issues but the phones were never answered. Nearly all of my professors did HORRIBLE jobs. One professor was on time for class about 5 times out of the entire semester. Another professor cancelled class so much that I only had the class maybe 10 times out of the semester. Another professor got angry when he was asked questions. Overall, this school receives an F. If I could give a lower grade I would.

Question
UDC is a greatComputer Science
UDC is a great school for the money. Even for foreign students. Many inner city students do not take advantage of this school. It gave me a decent education for a very reasonable price. I graduated almost 17 years ago, went for a graduate study, and now I am happy with the career I have.

Question
UDC isn't a bad school but majority ofBrightOther
UDC isn't a bad school but majority of the students who attend the university are older and are using this as a stepping stone. Majority of students plan to transfer out (such as myself)so if you're coming here as an out of state applicant you may want to look elsewhere its not alot of students living on campus so you'll more than likely feel isolated. There's a lot to do in the city however but a lot of the friends you make will be commuter students so if you have other options just go somewhere else. Also the admissions process is very tedious because they're slow and tend to misplace things so please be ontop of your stuff if you decide to go here, even if its for a semester . (Like me)
