“Office of admissions is the most unorganized departmentBright
Office of admissions is the most unorganized department of all state colleges. After repeatedly being told I didn't have all my admissions paperwork in, when everything had been sent in twice, I should've run for the hills then. No, instead I went to Kean and now I can't wait until I get out. This is the worst school ever. NJ tax payers should be up in arms that their tax money is being used to support this school.
The Computer Science program at Kean is great, Dr. Morreal is very smart, friendly and the professors so far for my Core Classes are very nice and helpful. However, everything else at Kean is a disaster. Half of my credits didn't transfer properly, I've been given the runaround like CRAZY the administration is awful. Good luck actually getting into the classes you need, they're always full...and if you need to get pushed in you have to go chasing department heads to do it to get paperwork signed. Unless you personally email the dean, no one does anything for you. I think this school is so disorganized, unhelpful, and there is such a lack of accountability that I may transfer for the fall of my senior year. I think it will be considerably LESS work to go through the transfer process at Rutgers then to attempt to register for another 2 semesters. I am a good student, and at OCC it was cake to do everything, I can't believe they paired up with Kean! and if you have kids, don't even THINK about it....getting your scheduling worked around involves jumping through flaming hot rings of fire - no one cares that you are a parent that is probably working full time trying to get an education to support your kids, literally no one gives a crap at Kean.
Kean University is a school which would be in the bottom portion of colleges that applicants who have decent GPA and SAT score would attend even of instate students. First this a commuter school, you come on campus, go to class and leave. There is very little if any school spirt here and activities are limited as well. The admission standards are not competitive either, you need a 2.5 GPA and close to a 1000 SAT score (math/verbal) and you are in. Faculty here are helpful and help when every you need it, never has a bad experience in that regard. I attended from 2004-2005 and still regret it.
