Just really stay onQuite BrightEnglish
Just really stay on top of Financial Aid and the Bursars because they will get things mixed up! Meet with department advisors to make sure you're on track within the major, and meet with general advisors to make sure you're on track for graduation!

If you're independent, passionate, curious, and down toQuite BrightPsychology
If you're independent, passionate, curious, and down to earth, this is a good place for you. Hunter is a commuter school so people aren't here to socialize and party. Also, the administration will not hold your hand. You have to be proactive about registering, paying tuition, and graduating on time. Don't expect anyone to hand you a cute group of friends, throw a party next door, give you the answers in chem lecture or make you a plan for graduation. You'll have to work for that stuff and figure it out on your own. If that's not something you're into, don't go here. You'll hate it.

Sadly, most of Hunter College's accolades and prestigeNot so brightPhysics
Sadly, most of Hunter College's accolades and prestige is simply non-existent.
Despite being in the heart of New York City, the actually college itself is fairly run-down and outdated. Classrooms often have broken/missing furniture, desks, and other technologies.

If you're fortunate enough, we'll find a few helpful and understanding professors in your major department, however...more than likely, you'll come across professors (and TAs) whom never answer e-mails, provide incorrect advising, never follow through with office hours.

My main issue with the college is its horrible admissions, advising, and undergraduate support staff. Myself, along with most of my friends were incorrectly advised (some not even advised) about their academics with led to late graduations. Most of these office personnel transfer you from department to department in order to solve an issue, which either never gets resolved, or resolved too late.Please do yourself a favor and look at the other CUNY schools...
