My first undergrad degree did not help me,Neuroscience/Cognitive Science
My first undergrad degree did not help me, everyone said the major I chose would lead me to a great career as a PhD. They were very wrong. A PhD with my major can barely get a paying job and most have to settle for unpaid internships! So after years of working in a related field I went back to study nursing. This was an even worse idea. The nursing professors were unprofessional. The administration (especially Dean Beal) is appalling. I emailed all of my nursing professors and never once received an email back. The program was so flawed I left. I spent thousands of dollars at this school and feel very cheated. Although, it was my fault to try to go back to the same terrible place.

Question
I attended Simmons College for the first yearNot so bright
I attended Simmons College for the first year and a half of my undergraduate degree and was miserable the whole time. I tried to give it many chances but I felt like there was no place for me. I stayed as long as I did because my professors were amazing but that was the only positive experience I had. The students I attended classes with were very radical, and at times were so intense that they were unreasonable. I felt that if I did not have the same view point as my peers they looked down on me. It was very uncomfortable, and proved to only get worse as time went on. Transferring was a saving grace.

Question
I am a student attending the accelerated 14AverageNursing
I am a student attending the accelerated 14 mos nursing program. I have had nothing but a negative experience. Most of the professors are rude, condesencing and extremely unhelpful. The program is so disorganised and just chaotic. I have had nothing but obstacle after obstacle. This is a perfect definition of dysfunction.
