I went to a community college for oneAverageSociology
I went to a community college for one year, and transferred here, liked it for a week then despised it. The schools disability services are decent but the professors suck at their job with the exception of Dr. Billetz in the Biology department. People should know that this school is cold depressing and a waste of money. Don't come here.

If you plan toNot so brightSociology
If you plan to come to MCLA and are seeking a degree in any field other than English, or Science, don't come here. The Sociology dept is cold, and not helpful whatsoever.

I have a laundry list of problems withQuite BrightBiology
I have a laundry list of problems with this school, and they all take place in different classes as well as admin. For starters, from my experience, teachers don't like to respond to emails. I have sent them about problems I was having, as well as suggestions for class, and nothing. This aggravated me! I needed a tutor in one of my classes, and I was told by the teacher/professor that they didn't offer them. In admin, they would ask me questions, and I would tell them the answer. Then they would get pissy with me, tell me they dont believe me, and go ask another department to confirm what I had said. I had to withdraw from a class because of lack of communication from the teacher, and didnt want to deal with it any longer, and the registrar's office had a very rude attitude with me. A few of the teachers there dont seem to be very well educated in the subject they are teaching, and they also dont seem like they know how to teach the subject well, either. Another class, the teacher stood in the back of the room the whole time, every class, and gave a power point presentation. Not only that, you couldn't understand him very well because he would mumble, talk fast, and very soft. This is the class I dropped, because not being able to hear him in class, I would send him emails and try talking to him, and I wouldn't get anything. I tell you now, apply to other schools! I am leaving this school and not finishing my major. I refuse to spend my money on this quality! Oh, one more thing. My fiance was trying to get into this school. She spoke with the old transfer councilor, Josh, and everything was going good. Now the new one, Annette, has come in and has disregarded everything he told her. She was rude to my fiance, and definitely not helpful! Seriously? This is a school? I have come from a community college with 90 credit hours, and I have NEVER received this type of behavior! Wow!
