This school BLOWS.AverageBusiness - Management and Administration
This school BLOWS. I came here from Vermont and I thought that I could get a more decent education by going to the big city (compared to where I'm from in Vermont). The education quality absolutely sucks. I feel like I was in high school the whole time. English II was a complete joke and more like Middle School English/Grammar. The staff were equally unhelpful and were working professionals. They seem to pass students just because they can and there is no value in the education. The dorms is another story. They are the worst buildings ever. They're even worse than the projects! No elevators, a musty moldy smell, and its in pretty bad shape. Also, I brought my PS3 and guess what? The internet is so slow that my Verizon FIOS at home is faster than it. A Comcast line will not hold for 50+ students in one building. Also, their printer is always broken or out of paper. The libraries close early and they have such small facilities. Also, a few weeks back, Bay State made it to the news since there was an attempted abduction of a student and robbery. Scary. They need to up the security of the place and make it more safe. The students there aren't very bright either. They absentmindedly walk around all day long. Also, who ever heard of taking attendance in college and making it count towards your grade? What are we in middle school? Their policies are so ridiculous that its not even funny. Also, their lack of self-service resource are just amazing. Their online course looks so amaturish. If I were you, stay CLEAR away from this place and take your money elsewhere.

I began here for Medical assisting in 2003.Business - Management and Administration
I began here for Medical assisting in 2003. I went to one of the offsite campuses. I realized then this school was awful but just thought that is how all schools would be. I then transfered to RIC and only returned back to BayState to continue with my BA in management because I began working full time and knew this school was a joke. It is not like regular college you could sleep through ever class and pass. Communication is aweful no ever calls you back and when they do they try to run around the question. Keep track of you classes if you choose to go here as they like to also add unneccasarry classes in as well. Be careful I am a 4.0 student no matter where I go a parent as well and I work full time. I have transfered one more time to finish out my degree to a high class school that cost less than Baystate as well

Bay State does not offer many amenities, but its back bay location provides endless possibilities. Classes, dorms, and food are mostly OK. If you like the city then this is the city for you.Bill vasbindr
