u can never image how slack those officers

Apr 08 2014Unknown
u can never image how slack those officers are. the admission office answer me an e-mail about freshman question with unbelievable grammar mistakes and spelling mistakes, like "Tahnk you for your interest in HUnter College. It takes 4-6 for CUNY to process an application."it is like he or she only took a few seconds to answer, and they didn't even answer my question! it's very disrespectful and what kind of job did they do! i should probably go to buffalo university nor stay in hunter for the lower tuition.

Sadly, most of Hunter College's accolades and prestige

Jun 04 2014Physics
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Despite being in the heart of New York City, the actually college itself is fairly run-down and outdated.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...

Hunter prides itself in being diverse but that

Jan 19 2014Music - Composition/Theory
Hunter prides itself in being diverse but that is all BS. The staff is always unapproachable and snotty, no matter if you are nice or not to them, they will still treat you like an idiot. I don't understand why the staff needs to make the student body feel inadequate since it affects everybody by doing this. It only means that they are not paid well or that there are larger internal problems, but besides that really LARGE problem with staff, the other issue is the ciriculum which does not offer an education but just a piece of paper. Many teachers do not care about their students, however, some do, and it's a mixed bag. I would recommend checking teachers out before signing up for a class to make sure most review son the professors are favorable, otherwise I would pass. It's not really a college experience, but the upper east side location is a good one and accessible tithe train which is good for travel. My advice is that if you can afford to go elsewhere, I would STRONGLY recommend it because you will not learn anything from this school and you'll just have a huge headache with the staff all the time. Most of the people who give this place a bad review and the many many similarities in complaints should send red flags to prospective students.
