AVOID ANNA MARIA LIKE THE PLAGUE.Quite BrightOther
AVOID ANNA MARIA LIKE THE PLAGUE.
There are three types of undergrads at AMC:

1. Arrogant loud insecure semi "atheletes"
2. Music, art, and theatre majors with the same social skills that one would imagine people of such "aesthetic appeal" would posess in high school. (If you understand this entry and it's tone then you are far too smart for AMC unless you want a quick degree and a huge tuition bill)

3. Individuals who keep to themselves for the most part, are probably here on scholarship, and either transfer out at the first oppurtunity or graduate owing very little to the school.

The kids at AMC are the kind of people you would be wise to avoid after losing contact with. Its very rare to find intelligent and interesting people at this school and the faculty are just as appealling as the student body.

Michelle Cash, the resident advisor is a condacending moody ex grad, with an air of entitlement to authority and very little respect for the students at the school. Again, to all the people interested in going to this wretched academy think twice.

Question
I was a music therapy student at AnnaNot so brightOther
I was a music therapy student at Anna Maria College. When you're a music kid, you have virtually no life. You have to take twice as many classes as all the others because most of them don't count. Most of the professors don't really teach you anything. They make you teach yourself which it fine to a point, but when you aren't able to understand, they accuse you of more or less being stupid. One of our professors was even suspended and is being investigated because of the way he treats us in a classroom.

The food is sub-par at best. Not the worst thing I've ever had, but very far from good. AMC is so far away from civilization, you can't do anything. And their attempts at movies and other activities, I've heard are just awful.They have a great and supportive counseling center, but they don't really tell you about it unless you have something dramatic in your life that you really need help in. And the other students are just as shallow and selfish as in high school, maybe even worse.

Question
Please do not waste your time going toBrightOther
Please do not waste your time going to this school.chosing amc was the biggest mistake ive ever made and one of the only things in my life that i regret. first of all the caf food is NASTY you will shit for 3 weeks non stop untill your body gets used to what they call food, and the caf is only open a few hours a day. the dorms are out dated and NASTY. drunk idiots piss shit and puke everywhere and sometimes it will stay there for days till maintanace feels like cleaning it. there is nothing to do on campus except drink and smoke. if you attend amc you will probobly end up an alcoholic. the class rooms are not impressive at all my high school was alot more high tech. oh dont let me forget that half the science classes arent even accredited and dont count for anything. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do not waste 40 grand a year at this hell hole. i didnt even last an entire semester before i left.
