First getting help with financial aid is likeAverageOther
First getting help with financial aid is like pulling teeth, and it isn't much better for any form of help that you need at the school. The teachers will pass anyone for just showing up a couple of times, even though their policy is no more than 4 absences. You will quickly lose any ambition that you once had. But the most important thing to know if you go there is that everything is YOUR fault. If they can't give you the flexable schedule that they promise it is your fault, if they tell you put something on your financial aid application that you shouldn't it's your fault for listening. Everyone from the dean to the president of the college will make you feel bad and flat out tell you that it was your fault.

Question
If you are on welfare and can notSuper BrilliantSocial Work
If you are on welfare and can not read write or speak correct english this is the school for you. If you want to sit in class and scream yo there goes that fat Niger this is the school for you. If you have no class this is the school for you.The work is junior high school level. The degree equals shit if you want to get a masters. The cost of the school is ridiculous. This school is a total ripe off save yourself time and money do not go to this school. There is nothing good about this school or its staff or students.

Question
Just like any other college, MCNY has it'sOther
Just like any other college, MCNY has it's problems. I graduated with an undergraduate degree in Human Services and have been unable to find a job solely based on the reputation of this college. I worked hard to get good grades and learn the philsophy that Audrey Cohen had created for her school. I'll admit, the theory of "Purposes" is a beautiful one. However, the staff, the lack of communication amongst the administration and the way I have seen students treated is horrible. A week before my graduation in 2011, I received a letter stating that I wouldn't graduate because they couldn't prove that I graduated from High School. I thought it was a mistake, so I went to the registrar to clear the situation. It wasn't a mistake. This also wasn't the first degree I had received from the college. I was awarded my associates degree the year prior. This school even let me start my Master's Degree. I withdrew from the Master's program because of the amount of money I was paying for classes that I was doing for free on the OEM website. The school let me start my Master's program and then wouldn't put my loan information through to cover the semester because of the lack of my Highschool diploma. Might I add that they have a copy of the actual diploma in my file because that was a requirement when registered for my first set of classes in 2008. Now, I have a credit company telling me that I owe the school $9,600, thus ruining my credit score. This isn't the only problem I have had with the school. The reputation is ruined within the Human Service sector. I had one person I interviewed with tell me that she couldn't hire me because the organization had to fire previous employees who graduated from the school who couldn't read. I feel horrible that I went to this school. The idea is great but they need to change their policies and especially the President. I hope they will get back to the reputation they had when my mother graduated from here in 2004.
