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Despite being in the heart of New York City, the actually college itself is fairly run-down and outdated.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

u can never image how slack those officers
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.
