I attended 4 years and graduated without any problems. |
Most negative reviews are from students who couldn't even suck it up for one year. Nearly all the people that I graduated with that actually stayed four years and received a diploma would have positive comments.
Those who hated it after 6 months are the same people that hate any authority in their lives.
Yes there are rules such as no drinking, yes there are curfews, and yes there are dress standards that must be followed. Who cares? It's not that hard to follow. Anyone with half a brain can understand the reasoning for the policies and abide by them.
The work stations are easy. It's even fun. Once again those that complain about working 15 hours a week are the same people who are going to simply break down and cry once they are in the quote real world. I'm graduated now and have to work 60hrs a week just to pay bills! So like I said, not a big deal, and actually the work experience can be helpful with some employers.
Overall I would recommend College of the Ozarks. You can learn a lot if you apply yourself and you'll make some lifetime friends too.
My advice: If you're looking for college as an 'escape' from the 'rules' of your parents, as a place to 'party' it up, then this probably won't be a good fit. You'll most likely be expelled in the first 6 months and then have the opportunity to post a negative review on this website.

| CofO has a lot of potential; however, the they need to replace the administrators with ones that care about the school and students and not building North Korean of the ozarks. Goodwill that the school does have is attributable to former administrators. Unfortunately, the current admin. has tarnished that image. I don't know a single alum that would give a dime to CofO and as far as donors, they made their decision to give back when Graham Clark was the president. If you care to check that out, look at their 990's (federal tax form for non-profits). CofO used to receive 20-25 million per year, however, their last few 990's have been under 10 million. As far as admission into CofO, well, it doesn't have anything to do with the ACT or grades. Decisions are made on income because CofO gets the 10 grand from fed and state grants, plus the students work on campus. Most could attend a state school for free on their pell and state grants. If those students wanted to work 15 hours a week at a real job, not weaving baskets or making fruitcakes, that income would be spending money. |
