Wake Tech is the perfect example of "youQuite BrightComputer Science
Wake Tech is the perfect example of "you get what you pay for". The instructors are not very good and often the difficulty of your course will be from teaching yourself. The math department in particular is a joke. Many people fail out of simple classes because the department (that outsources a lot of its teaching to online programs) designs things to set a student up for failure. They will work you through a math system by practicing the more simple versions of it, then slam you with the most complicated forms on a test with no warning. Of course the rest of the faculty aren't winners either. Finance office is a mess, the learning/math center tutors are arrogant, unhelpful, and rude. About the only employees at Wake Tech who are worth their paycheck are the coffee shop baristas. If I had to do it all over again I would have applied elsewhere instead of spending the past few semesters at Wake Tech.

I spoke with an adviser who was verySuper BrilliantPreVet and Veterinary
I spoke with an adviser who was very condescending and made me feel unimportant. He seemed to have better things to do and he did not listen to what I had to say. By the end of the session I felt lost. I have had problems signing up for courses through out my whole experience at this college. Also, the administration seems too busy to help, they never answer my phone calls or reply to my emails/voicemails. I do love my teachers though, they are very nice and caring.

Here is the honest truth regarding Wake Tech:Education
Here is the honest truth regarding Wake Tech: the social life is non-existant, the financial aid office is very annoying to deal with, you can't form any friendships since everyone leaves campus after class, the only way you can have friends is if you knew the person before coming to Wake Tech and having to commute 15 to 30 miles for one class is not fun.

However, after everything I've just said, the price of going to Wake Tech is it's main redeeming quality. Per semester, you shouldn't pay more than between 1000-2000 dollars and that, roughly, includes tuition and books. After that, there are really no other costs connected to Wake Tech.If you can live with staying at home for another two years like what I'm doing, than going to Wake Tech and transferring out to a four year university is a smart option.
