If Montclair State is on your college list, cross it out ASAP!! This campus is completely unorganized! You will constantly have different advisors, who don't even help you. Instead they direct you to someone, and then that person will direct you to someone else and so on. It's honestly a joke.You are not looked at as a student or individual, but instead as a dollar sign. Advisors and administrators have the worst attitudes and make you feel like you're a bother. This campus spends their money on making new buildings when that's the least of their priorities. They literally have a science building and a math building, but they just had to build a building right next to both of them and make it the Math and Science building. Seriously? If you are planning to commute, make sure you have a crappy car and leave super early. Your car will 100% be hit by someone (multiple times), whether your car is parked or they're flying around the bend. Moving on to campus life, THERE IS NONE! This campus is completely dead at nights and on weekends as this is basically a commuter school. There are a bunch of weirdos who go to this school too. I have seen the weirdest people and things on this campus, it's unreal. Students are very unapproachable and snobby. People complain that they want to make friends, but they're all weird and jerks and no one seems to make an effort. I originally wanted to join a national sorority, but after meeting all of the sisters, no thank you. Tri Sig has some of the weirdest girls in it. Phi Sig is boring and has some weird girls in it too. Sigma Delta Tau seems nice, but the girls are so bitchy and fake. I have a class with two girls in SDT and they're so annoying!!! Same goes for Delta Phi Epsilon. The girls are pretty, but omg they're the most fake girls i've ever met! They all think they're way better than you; not cute. Professors on this campus are jokes too. Work is a high school level. I haven't learned much in the three years I have attended so far. Honestly, this campus would be a waste of you time and money. I HIGHLY recommend you to not even bother.

There's so much racism spread about in this school. If you're not Latin, Black, or White, you're seen as a lesser being.

This is the worst possible school you could come to for research. The facilities are horrendous and outdated. The autoclave is old and is always breaking down. Their research projects are jokes. If you ever go to a scientific conference you will feel like a no body. They get practically no funding from NIH (1 person in the chemistry department has NIH money, but NONE of biology professors have it)

We don't have a confocal fluorescence microscope (come on)or a FLOW CYTOMETER (GET WITH THE PROGRAM MONTCLAIR STATE. It is just the worst possible school you could come for science, TRUST ME. If you come here for a BS and you're not in the Chemistry department, be prepared to do a masters because the research here is not going to cut it in the real world. Montclair State, you should be ashamed. Even if you're coming for medical school, you are making a horrible mistake. Most admissions committees will not have a good impression of you due to competition. This place is a dump. Even if you obtained a 4.0 gpa here, its not like that will be able to compare to someone who has a 3.8 from a rigorous school. Don't make a stupid decision because you think you're going to save money. I'd rather go in debt that come to this dump.
