I went there beforeNot so brightAccounting
I went there before the dorms were built, and it felt like I was back in high school. Also, if you were not a "GreeK" you were of no use to them.

Whenever people say that this school is soSuper BrilliantOther
Whenever people say that this school is so grat that it will offer you a bright future, take that advice with a grain of salt. The core curriculum doesn't prepare you to take on challenging coursework in the future, since the type of work the professors assign are mostly "busywork". The students here aren't very competitive, and any student who is seems to feel unmotivated as well as the urge to transfer out of this school. Don't believe people's claim of diversity here- the majority of the students here are white. the extracurriculars here are sub-par and don't offer a lot of varieties, especially if you want to join a established club instead of starting a new one. This school is a lot stricter than most other schools, which can prove to be a real pain. The school seems to give everyone a scholarship, so don't feel so great if you got one. The admissions comittee is just trying to rope you into this school. People think that just becuse this school is located within New York City limits, that they are in the actual city itself. For those people, you are WRONG!!! This school is actyally 15 miles away from the actual vity and you will have to wait for a long time to take the bus to the nearest subway, which can prove to be a major hassle, especially during the winter. This school will also suck the money you have out of your pockets since in addition to paying the ripoff of a tuition, you will have to pay many unecessary fees such as campus fees, which you might not be able to take advantage of the activities themselves (especially if you are a commuter student) because you would rater spend your time doing other more interesting extracurriculars outside of school(because they don't even have them on campus) or in an internship in order to make your graduate school resume lokk good. In conclusion, do not go here unless you want to go to an intellectual wasteland, be unmotivated, decieved, bored unfulfilled, and/or throw your money away. For those who are already stuck here, start filling out those transfer forms the day the become available.
