Administration sees you as a number.Quite BrightBiology
Administration sees you as a number. A lot goes into making the school look good. They claim you need a bachelor or grad degree to teach yet I've taken classes taught by instructors with certificates;backwards school. The school forces the most useless classes unto you to graduate. These prerequisites are akin to going to the store and fulfilling your prerequisite shopping requirements before you you can purchase the item you want. "Excuse me sir but you have to purchase a bucket of shrimp, nail clippers and a bottle of shampoo before you can buy that tub of ice cream"; its the money. They have Capella University grads teaching, whether that's good or bad, you decide. Choose your classes wisely because quite a bit of them won't transfer. Anything lower than calc, physics, etc and you've wasted your money and time. Most gen eds will transfer; social sciences,humanities,English,higher maths. Take what you need that corresponds to the classes required at a 4 year school and get out quickly before you squander your money on things that will not transfer. If you take these useless classes you are essentially locked within their system to graduate with one of their useless degrees. I've dealt with my fair share of poor instructors who are only there for a paycheck. Go in and knock out as many general education "requirements" and similar classes that will transfer to your 4 year program and run. Only 1/4 of their degrees are worthwhile in terms of return on investment, everything else you can just read up on at the library without being charged ridiculous sums of money on in order to prove something.

This college was such a waste of myBrightHistory/Histories (art history/etc.)
This college was such a waste of my time and money, and the environment there was brutal and awful. It struck me that the administration saw us as money in a corporate way and nothing else. Others were unhelpful, distant or not even available at all. Then there were the students who treated professors and others like garbage and had little respect even for themselves. What a bad experience. I can't wait to get away from it. Do yourself a favor and go to a real college that will challenge you in a positive educational way, even if you have to pay more to get it. Really.

Mvcc really prepared me for my field ofQuite BrightNursing
Mvcc really prepared me for my field of work. I have heard so many people bash this school. I find they are people who were not accepted into the program or people who flunked out and transferred to other schools. Any education is something YOU have to work at. You can't expect to be spoon fed info and have other people do your work for you or use all kinds of excuses. Ultimately each person has to pass the same boards!
