| Pine Manor is a great school, the faculty are helpful and the students are friendly. The school just needs more majors, more activities, and to be off the probation list and they'll be great. |

| This college wants to do great things but is stuck because it needs money. Giving preference to students that only board at the college is not the way to go about getting out of bankruptcy, though. Doesn't feel worth the $30k. I don't pay to be relegated to the dorms no one bothers to keep up. |

| I got accepted into Pine Manor College, my senior year of High School. I received an interview with a counselor at my school and she was amazing to speak with. She loved my college essay and didn't allow my earlier years of high school grades affect her decision in accepting me. My first two years of high school were spent at a very rigorous examination school that gave me hours of homework each night. I couldn't take the overcrowded and arrogant setting, so as a sophomore I decided to transfer to a regular public high school. The work was fairly easy compared to my last school and I enjoyed myself. My high school record wasn't the best due to the terrible grades that I received at my first high school; my final high school gpa was less than a 3.4. Despite this, Pine Manor and four of my other schools accepted me, but PMC was different. |
PMC offered me the most money, was very affordable for a private school and was very similar to my dream school that I did not get accepted into. My other schools could have had my mom pay as up to 20k a year for my tuition, but they only asked for about 3k. PMC seemed perfect, it was affordable, very small campus, seemed like a close community of empowered women and art students were even housed in the west village(turned out to be one of the best things on campus). Unfortunately, Pine Manor turned out to be anything but perfect. Within a week of me staying here, as soon as the upperclassmen arrived there was a fight between two girls and glass was broken; this was only the beginning.
Ever since that first fight happened, I saw the true colors of Pine Manor College. Girls were being ?ghetto?, crazy, obnoxious and disrespectful towards each other and kitchen staff. A rumor was started about my lovely appearance even though I didn?t know anybody and statements were made that they said I said. These were clearly girls who weren?t raised with loving parents or taught to accept any cultures other than they?re own. I mean how could they learn by attending this college? The majority of the girls were black. As a black American I like being around a diverse setting, this school just has a bunch of ?minorities? that get accepted in which gives them the right to claim that it is diverse. There are a few other races mixed in here and there, but they are not in copious amounts as I would like them to be.
The Professors are top notch, but some of the classes are bullshit. I don?t what it is about this school, but they offer a lot of nonsense classes that don?t make sense. Despite that, the professors are amazing people who care and are highly educated. I feel bad for them sometimes because of the unintelligent girls in the classrooms who have no respect for them or the class.
I am now a sophomore at Pine Manor College and I am transferring in the fall of 2012. I wrote the above paragraphs my freshman year with the intention of posting this review at that time. Since then the boys and girls from Mount Ida have taken over 2 buildings in the East Village. Now there is only one village that is entirely dedicated to the Pine girls. They lied to us and told us that only MI girls would be renting, and no one noticed anything until move in day of this year when we saw all of the boys. This school has the potential to become something great, but I can?t wait around for that to happen.
