| Where should I even start? The campus is not just shabby--it's disgusting. I've had to get up during lecture to kill roaches, there was a wounded pigeon trapped in the windowpane during one lecture that was dying and the school refused to put the thing out of it's misery. The bathrooms are beyond foul and I see roaches in there often. And the science classrooms and labs look like they haven't been updated since the cold war--don't be suprized if you find broken glassware in your lab drawers from other students, they don't care if you get hurt.|
The school of nursing is just awful, through and through. The staff are completely dishonest and will tell you that you have a chance of getting in even though the waitlist can be years. If you don't have a 3.6 or above, don't bother. And if you do get in good luck getting into the classes you need--I was shut out of prerequisites every single semester despite having advanced standing.Horrible--so many stories about poor treatment, terrible administration, etc... Be careful, and go elsewhere if you can afford it.

| Well i guess you get what u pay for, tuition for instate students is not high at all, there for the school is super crowded, there is always traffic of ppl on escalators, administration is not helpful at all, they never do any exceptions, if u need smth u simply have to follow rules, if mess up it is ur problem, nobody cares, administration treats u like they r very smart and u are pretty stupid for not knowing simple things. I did have good professors though, some of them very helpful, but some of them are just aweful, probably like in most other schools. But the thing is school and administration does not care if u dont likesmth about school and want to transfer, I guess Hunter has so many students and loosing one or two does not make any difference to school, if u are looking for helpful staff i dontrecommend this school, try out maybe other cuny school if u r looking for affordable tuition, maybe others better than Hunter |

| Hunter College takes a lot of pride to make sure that they are the best valued college in the nation. But do not be fooled. Although the tuition is cheap, the quality education for Biochemistry, which is my major, is not worth the cost. Majority of the professors are focused on their research, so they do not want to spend time teaching students, but they have to, in order to make sure they get the funding they need for their research. |
Most of the science classes at Hunter College are horrible. Several reasons include bad professors, limited resources, and the material that is expected for students to learn. For example, the intro biology course at Hunter is ridiculous. They treat the class as if it is a graduate course. You wonder why many students with great potential to become doctors end up quitting pre-med or taking the course somewhere else. The school obviously does not care, because they want to build a reputation of being "the poor man's Harvard University", so that they can get publicity, fame, and power.
The security level at the school is bad. In the library, there are homeless people living inside the library on the back corner of the floor. There is even rats crawling around the floor of the library. It's disgusting. "Hunter's prestige meets innovation" HA ! what a joke.
Because of my horrible experience at Hunter College, and my unfortunate financial and life problems, the school decided to kick me out of the school, with no chance of getting back into the school now that Hunter is being very strict with the admission process. Whatever you do, do not go to Hunter College. If you are a prospective Post-Bac student, don't go to this school. You will regret it for the rest of your life.
