Positive Negative Neutral Advice
So I'll start with the negative.Biology
So I'll start with the negative. The Bronx campus is so dangerous and shady. I've seen people do everything from having sex in hallways to smoking pot in the cafeteria in front of staff. Some staff members even smoke pot with the students. I've seen a weird man jerking it in a random empty room... Not cool

Some of the staff at this campus does not know English.
Many of the students I've helped in this campus can't write a grammatically correct campus and I question how a lot of them got into this school. Other guys talk to me about how they want to sexually violate girls when they get them alone. Every girl. No matter how she looks. There are A LOT of men on this campus that I as a father would be concerned about. This is not a campus where any females should feel safe alone. As one guy had mentioned: "p**sy is p**sy". These guys literally say they're only in college to have sex. They haven't passed any classes and they brag about it too like it's funny. But hey that's on them

As a guy, I've had many guy friends but the crap these dudes say is borderline creepy. One more thing is that the school keeps changing my PACT councilor and I don't know why. Last complaint: the bronx campus is in the middle of nowhere and so is Dobbs!

Now with the good:

The manhattan campus is located in the middle.of the city with much to eat around there. The campus (if one could call it that) is very small for a college but very clean and the people who clean it up like Juan are very nice. The professors at this school know a lot more than at other schools I've attended. However there are a few that should not be allowed to teach. They will read straight from the textbook/assign homework unrelated to coursework or they're just bitter and are not looking to pass anyone.

Bronx campus and Dobbs are also clean but not as clean at the Manhattan campus. The staff on all the campuses are willing to help the students. Oh, I forgot to mention, library staff in Manhattan is fantastic.

Some days, the library there will get so crowded that there will be no free computers but they still do a great job.

Question
Mercy is a poorly run college.Quite BrightOther
Mercy is a poorly run college. The students are not recruited for their scholastic abilities. I had an academic scholarship from another institution and was told that Mercy would match it. Needless to say it was the old bait and switch. I was milked dry financially while the student affairs office "looked into" the problem. I left and went to a better institution academically and got into a far better graduate program. Go somewhere else. The academics are not very strong here!
