The transfer process from cuny to cuny isNot so bright
The transfer process from cuny to cuny is terrible. It is only advisable to attend baruch for their accounting program and maybe their psychology. Aside from that the CIS program is a joke if you've taken CIS classes at another school Baruch does not give you an exemption to take the first level course in order to take the 2nd level course for you major. Instead the tell you to retake the classes you've taken already at another school. Transferring from a cuny 2year to a different 4 year and completed some classes there before going to baruch would have saved me almost 2 semester worth of retaking classes. I requested to move back to an elementary language class that I took an exemption for but the material was too much for not being able to read or write anything. The professors at the language department seemed helpful and encouraged me to take the elementary 2 though my professor for the language class advised me to take the elementary 1. Now it is too late for me to add/drop and the language department is now refusing to help me, also stating that it is to late that my only option is to take a W for my class and prolong my graduation date. Baruch does not care for students they care for the bottom line, the money they take in and the amount of students they are able to usher through their system.

I came to Baruch with a full scholarship.Quite BrightFinance
I came to Baruch with a full scholarship. Even with that, I was quite happy to leave. A cold place, with cold professors that have either a poor command of the English language or a complete disregard for the students. They work for a paycheck, and it shows. I transferred colleges, and my current University, although smaller and less known, is MILES AHEAD of this place. At my current university, escalators and elevators work, classes are designed to provoke learning and critical (real-world) thinking, and faculty genuinely care about the students they teach, not a paycheck. Save your money and go elsewhere. AVOID this school.

I am currently a freshman student at Baruch,BrightUndecided
I am currently a freshman student at Baruch, and can honestly say I wouldn't recommend it if you are looking for a comfortable learning environment. The whole process to get into school is long and winding and if you ever have a problem, do NOT ask for help. You will be met with an arrogant and insulting response, sprinkled with a maybe two helpful words. I can't explain how an atrocious administration have completely extinguished my excitement for school. Honestly, I wouldn't recommend it at all. The school may look amazing, and for such a low price it almost seems too good. Well, it is. I honestly would assess different options if you are looking to have an enjoyable college experience.
