| Many would point to either the faculty (mainly professors) as the problem. After being there for 6 years and graduating I will address what I feel is one of the main problems of this school; the lack of outstanding, respectable, mature and serious students. |
It seems that there many lazy students expecting to cheat their way through the college work. I have heard students who would take advantage of professors and yell at them over emails. I heard that there was an incident recently where during a Biochemistry exam a majority of the students were caught cheating with overwhelming evidence. The problem was that this was THE MAJORITY OF THE CLASS and professors are already stressed enough because most students aren't willing to put in the work to actually pass the class. And so there was nothing the faculty could do. I will even share one year where several students were arrested for having attending an off campus party which was raided by the police. The students actually attempted to run away from the cops and got caught. Some of these students were kicked out... some others actually made it all the way to graduation. It seems that every freshmen class makes questionable choices but in all honesty this simply reflect who they are as students. If you hear that certain students are doing cocaine in the dorms what kind of impression would that give you?
The basic problem is that the school is to desperate at accepting almost any student they can regardless of scores grades and attitude. It seems that if you have they money, you can get into the school. I attribute that problem to administration but NOT the faculty. I will vouch for the faculty in saying that many of them during my experience actually went out of their way to help me succeed academically. They have been respectful and real with me. I assume that other students who have said otherwise were rude and disrespectful. I would say the profile of the problem students are kids who have attempted to get into a state college or a well known university but failed BUT their families are wealthy and so they would rather try buy their way into any school but a community college (which there is absolutely nothing wrong with).
Word of advice that should be common sense but I will say it; Be prepared to work. You might see state colleges and have a picture in your mind that college is all about playing on your Xbox360 and toga parties. There is a time an a place for that BUT for a majority of your time here at MCP be prepared to learn how take care of sick people. Be prepared to do work. Be prepared to be challenged and grow! Stop bitching that a professor is not doing enough for you. Do your work and get that degree. Another word of advice, find good friends to keep you focused. Avoid those who are just going to bring you down and try to cheat off you.

| its a not a bad school all together its just supper competitive and chalenging. theres a lot of work to do and the system is broken. there could be like two weeks that are really light and then two weeks that are over schedualed. its also super strict they treat us like dogs who need to wear lanyard at alltimes of the day. the security sucks and rules are enforced to the strictest manner. its almost imposible to get your classes to be one after another. there are like 3 hour breaks beetween them and its a hassel if you live off campus. and they ony provide houseing for freashman. also for a comutter school to provide no parking is rediculous. and theres no parking on the street. |

| What I remember most about MCP is the overcrowding in the hallways, classrooms, and library on any given day, and that the faculty and administration were were not concerned about it. To quote one President of the time, "... as a college we range just below the median average with respect to quality of education" ... and that was alright as long as MCP was not at the bottom. How is that going to inspire students?|
My advice would be to spend the remaining year, learning what you can about pharmacy, and then trasfer somewhere else as soon as possible.
