DO NOT go to this school.AverageBusiness - Management and Administration
DO NOT go to this school. They will lie to you during the admissions process. I was told that as a transfer student with an Associate's of Science degree that I would be transferred in as a Junior and that there is no need to worry about the CORE program.

Instead, the CORE program makes it difficult for my credits to transfer and cover the courses needed for my major. I have taken Algebra and Statistics at my previous college, but Oglethorpe is requiring that I take their MATH-314 course as well as BUS-275 (their version of statistics). It was a struggle to complete my math courses and now I have to do them all over again. It will be difficult to stay on track without course overloads and summer courses.

Oh, and Cecil Rose (the adviser for transfer students,) will probably give you the wrong advice.
Their food is disgusting, and you are required to be on the meal plan ($2,285.00 a semester). The only thing good about this school is the location and the housing.

Question
I just think it's funny how Oglethorpe hasBrightBusiness - Management and Administration
I just think it's funny how Oglethorpe has enough money to build luxury apartments for students that cost up to $2,000, yet Traer hall still has roach and spider infestations, mold, falling ceiling tiles, roof leaks, horrible plumbing, broken furniture, and walls so thin you can hear what you're suitemate is watching on tv. Oglethorpe values rich students and ignores poor ones.

Question
I liked the academicQuite BrightOther
I liked the academic work but I hated living on campus. Some of the students aren't friendly and there's no community. The walls are incredibly thin so you can hear everything (imagine everything terrible). Isolated especially during the weekends. Many people leave for a reason.
