Queens College is so overrated.BrightAccounting
Queens College is so overrated. I can't picture being here for another 7 semesters. Oh God help me, I studied so much for the math final and they give us a room with small desks to take the exam in. I couldn't even put my calculator on the desk. It was ridiculous. They make the exams nearly impossible to finish. Queens College do me a favor and stop trying to be an Ivy league college because your not and never will be.

These were the worst 3 yrs of mySuper BrilliantAccounting
These were the worst 3 yrs of my life; 1. the financial aid, these are the grouchiest, laziest, waste of paying waged workers ever; they should even be employed! u have a huge line of students waiting outside, being toldto walk in one at a time while u have 3 or 4 chatty workers behind the desk, just living it up and socializing and blatantly ignoring the students. fire them already! dont ever expect to get financial aid straightened out here; system sucks; u receive a final bill that u clearly pay in full for, only to wait a few months later and they say, no, nuh uh, u still owe us kinda system is that? happened like 2 times to me before; takes forever to get in; plus, they give u an attitude; all depts in this school have an attitude! its b/c the school's underachieving to begin w/ and these admin ppl are just upset they're stuck doing dead end jobs! even going on line, the woman gave me an attitude and said dont u see im waiting for the pc to boot up!?!??! im like ok, when i asked can you help me w/ a ques.

2. bursar: lazy ppl; only one booth opened for a huge line of ppl waiting forever! once it was my turn, this guy decides to take his sweet ass time and use the bathroom and takeshis time coming back. when i go to another booth, the woman instead shouts at me w/ a whatdya want!?!?! honestly!!!

3. accounting dept; worst ever!! the lazy students who work at the desk have this nonchalant, arrogant, and "im supposed to actually help u?!?!" attitude; even this woman at a desk typing, i asked politely, "miss," then she saids, dont u see im typing!?!?!?! geez, i guess some ppl cant multitask at all; horrible attitude. the professors are all arrogant, condescending ppl; ive only had like 4 who've actually been nice as opposed to like 15 profs. ive had. most openly make fun of students; even one teacher said i dont wanna pass all of u b/c then ull become cpas and compete w/ my!?!seriously?!?! other depts like fnes and economics!!!, especially, have a crabby attitude. only nice ppl ive met were these 2 women in computer sci dept. and this lady in reigstrar.. only one lady there. oh, and usually, some girls working at the librarian desk.. other than that, everyone else sucks. im not holding back...i prob. have a negative story for every place on campus; bookstore, even the career center!!!!! theyre the worst! dont even help u at all land any job/internship offer; totally unhelpful messages that dont notify u about on campus recruiters and the usual mean, grouchy woman at the admin desk and a condescending, total a-hole guy at the other help desk. only one woman, who's in charge of helping students as an advisor, was nice. basically, this schools admin sucks; they all look at u w/ an attitude of "what?? u want help from me?!?!" and when u really need help, thats when they all chatter in front of the waiting students.. w/ their co workers. o, study aborad office also is unhelpful. dont expect them to get back to ur emails, wait, thats with every office in school too. students are horrible; most unfriendly, arrogant ppl ever; everyone looks like theyre miserable, always a grim look on their wonder i've yet to make genuine friends here. i've made more friends at my old transferred school than friends all 3 yrs ive been here. then again, y'd i wanna meet these kind of ppl anyway? they suck.

I really dont knowAverageEconomics
I really dont know what to say, I am very neutral with this school. Some professors were good and some were bad. Not the best and not the worst honestly.
