I went into Marymount with a very openQuite BrightEnglish
I went into Marymount with a very open mind. I went to the school basically because I was getting a large amount in Financial Aid and Scholarships; though about 2 months into school I started getting calls and emails about payments that needed to be payed. In confusion I would call them and they would explain other expenses that needed to be payed. This happened many times through out the year.

Then I started having a hard time in my classes. I was in my Lit Analysis class my first semester and we had to read Frankenstein, which I had already read in high school so I was fairly comfortable with it. So after reading it we were told to write an opinion based paper on it, and so we did, and when getting it back I had an F on the paper. I went to the professor and asked why I got this grade. She explained that the paper was incorrect. I asked why,seeing as it was opinion based, and she told me my opinions were wrong. In other words my opinion was not her opinion. She told me to rewrite the paper, so I did and I just reiterated her opinions and of course I got an A on the paper. The school is a joke, and I would never suggest it to anyone.

This school is a money hungry, lying institution.Quite BrightCommunications
This school is a money hungry, lying institution. DO NOT GO HERE. the administration is deceitful, and unaware that the school they are running is crumbling with an almost 70 % transfer rate. DO NOT wast your money here. on top of spending 40 thousand a year, they try and take avery penny from you they can get. one of my best friends goes here on a full ride. the school threatened to take away her scholarships; when she challenged the situation, the school simply said they were just trying to see if shell pay. She earned what she was given. another situation was they tried to force a friend to pay a 100 dollar fine for a housing violation; he does not live in the dorms. when he challenged the fine the school's response was "we were just seeing if youd like to donate to our school." DO NOT WAST YOUR MONEy HERE, DO NOT WATSE YOUR TIME HERE. DO NOT WASTE YOUR PRECIOUS MIND HERE. you will feel yourself lose intelligence just by walking through the halls. PLEASE DONT MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE I DID.

I wish I had never gone to this school. Their administration is so disorganized. They treat you like you are a child, and their policies align with this. They are overpriced, their administration lies for their own benefit even when teh student suffers.
