Middlesex is a joke of a school.BrightBiology
Middlesex is a joke of a school. The financial aid "department" is one lady who decides everything and is horrible at getting back to you when asked for help. If you speak with the other administrators not a single one has any way of helping you. They on several occasions have granted financial aid to students then taken it away after the class has began. I would never recommend this school to anyone.

This school is a joke.Quite BrightComputer Science
This school is a joke. The computer science curriculum is lacking and is very outdated seeing as its a relatively new degree program at the school. The professors themselves are not to bad most are pretty chill but the rest of the faculty is intolerable, student services usually has no idea how to answer your questions without looking up the relevant info on the computer (which is usually wrong and not up to date). Financial aid reps are a miserable bunch and speak to you like you are an incompetent fool. This school is horrible, the only good thing about it is the transfer programs credits are guaranteed to transfer to any instate four year university (which isn't very helpful if they don't teach you jack).

If I would have known that administration wasQuite BrightBiology
If I would have known that administration was more confused than I in the school, I would have chose another college. I understand that the school is a community college I just wished they cared about the students rather than a paycheck. About 2/3 of the teachers don't have time and are in and out between Bedford and Lowell that it can be hard to contact unless through e-mail (which responds don't happen quickly, sometimes it takes anywhere from 1 day to a week by then you see them in class leaving you without an answer.) Administration seems to be confused of your information about 75% of the time and leaves you confused and without loans or without money for books. Most of the staff I speak to seem to be arrogant and talk rudely to you on the phone, almost as if I (the student) should be privileged to speak to someone working for Middlesex. I would not wish this school on anyone. If you don't believe what i have to say then take a look at the stats of student completion rates. This should clarify any other questions you have.
