Montgomery College can be a great option ifAverageComputer Science
Montgomery College can be a great option if you're looking to save money before going to a 4-year institution. Before you attend you must have a plan on how you'll get out. The advising and counseling here is atrocious. They can sometimes take several weeks to respond and provide little to no interest in actually advising you. You basically have to advise yourself and guide yourself through everything. So if you want to come make a plan of what courses you need and what grade you need in them to effectively transfer to whichever 4 year you want. From my experience, the computer science program at Montgomery College is horrible. I have only had one professor that effectively taught me and contributed to my understanding. The rest of the professors seem to not give a shit and barely speak English. It is hard to understand them and most of the time they just read off slides and barely go in-depth into what you need to know. Avoid MC if you're studying Computer Science.

Financial Aid is THEQuite BrightAccounting
Financial Aid is THE WORST. Coming from a transfer student from out of lazy West Virginia! Accounting department is very arrogant. Barely any tutor programs for it. this school has been a nightmare, with the social life not helping at all.

Most of the non-teaching staff is sub par.BrightBiology
Most of the non-teaching staff is sub par. Financial Aid is a nightmare. They have work study kids working the phones and desk answering questions and their answers are very often incorrect. It is really maddening. Some of the counselors are great, some are simply there to sit in their chair, sign forms, half listen, and collect a paycheck. This support staff makes this place unbearable for me and they are the reason I'm out of there. It's really frustrating. They need customer service training. Simple things like don't roll your eyes at the customer, huff at the customer, have a personal conversation while people are waiting in line and the phones are ringing. It's too bad, because my teachers have been great. The education is very good. The professors are trying very hard to prepare students for transfer to schools like UMCP. There are even research opportunities, which is really cool for a community college to offer. Many of the teachers are personable and there is free tutoring and many other resources to ensure you succeed.
