If you are a new freshman, a transfer,AverageAnimal Studies
If you are a new freshman, a transfer, very wealthy, know someone that works at the school, lives five minutes away, if you've never have had a family emergency or had your car break down, love walking in three feet of snow to class when they don't shovel, if you don't want to park your car anywhere safe, want to teach yourself everything, don't mind not getting into your classes until a semester or two later, be surrounded by people who don't care about you, if you like being ignored when your talking to anyone of "authority", and being treated like high school children or want to be in debt for the rest of your life for getting a degree two years later than you have planned...sign up for becker college...bring your checkbook

Becker is passable butBrightNursing
Becker is passable but extremely expensive. In hindsight I should have worked and gone to MBCC after I got off the wait list. Only worth it if your in a rush to get the degree. I will owe at least 10000 more than I expected when I started the program.

I was an Exercise Science major there lastBright
I was an Exercise Science major there last year. Though the faculty in this department are great and helpful, the program doesn't lead out into anything beyond becoming like, an athletic trainer. I want to be a Physical Therapist and most of the classes you will take at Becker with this major- won't be accepted in grad school, biggest reason to why I transferred.

I have a lot of friends who ran into this problem too, most being pre-vet majors. Those who want to be an actual veterinarian, take a look at the acceptance rate of those who actually go to grad school from Becker. The amount is very low so most of my friends who went for this, transferred too.

If you're going into something like early childhood education, or anywhere in that department, you're much better off going to a different, cheaper, school. This school is too expensive and even after you've graduated and have obtained a job, you're still going to be financially in a bad place.

Of course, this goes for any major really, this school is too expensive. You really don't get what you pay for. Sure, the faculty (or most of the faculty) is friendly but it's not worth it. The tuition goes up every year, whether you're doing good there or not (I had straight A's there) and I'm an in-state student. It would have been cheaper for me to go to a nicer school OUT OF STATE than it would be to go to Becker. I couldn't imagine how much people are paying who have actually stuck there throughout the four years, scary thought.

Worcester is not a particularly glamorous area so I tried to spend the least amount of time on that campus as possible. I lived on the Leicester campus, which is much nicer, but there's nothing to do. The shuttling back and forth between campuses (which you'll have to do regardless to what major you are) is a pain and gets old real fast. I personally think anyone would be better of going to a cheaper school. It'll be much nicer and you'll get a better education for sure. This school is way too expensive realistically, and impossible for those who actually want to attend grad school.
