Don't do nursing here, please, especially the ExtonQuite BrightNursing
Don't do nursing here, please, especially the Exton Evening/Weekend program. The SIM lab is never open to students and has no supplies, etc. Save yourself time and money in the end...just go straight for your BSN. The program is very poor and skips huge amounts of material that should be covered to pass NCLEX. The clinical rotations are an absolute joke. You have been warned.

Question
My experience at Delaware County Community College hasQuite BrightJournalism
My experience at Delaware County Community College has been superb and awesome. I am a journalism / communications major who started in Aug 2016. I have had excellent professors, great class schedules, students are friendly but not nosey or pushy. I go to college to learn, not for a social event. My English Comp I class was very good, so I'm puzzled to read that someone else posted that they demanded a refund and got an "F" instead. That just can't be true. The reality seems more like she didn't follow the guidelines at DCCC. If you drop a class, you must meet with a guidance director to have the class removed from your schedule, and there are deadline dates, but even the dates fall very late in each semester. I encourage whoever had the bad experience to perhaps return to college as you get a bit older. I originally went to Community College of Philadelphia in my 20's, and got 1. A 1. C and didn't drop two other classes, so I landed in the same position as what the negative commenter posted.

I have since returned to DCCC at the age of 44, and I am an honor roll student. I've never been an honor roll student in my entire life, at least not until now. As we get older and grow up, we put priorities first. Too, I am paying money out of my own purse for college, so I am certainly going to take it so much more seriously.

I wish that person all the best, and better days ahead. I love DCCC, and would highly recommend it to anyone in the area.

Question
Overall, I am extremely disappointed with DCCC.BrightCommunications
Overall, I am extremely disappointed with DCCC. Each time major issues occurred. Once, I demanded my money back for an English Comp 1 class, in which we had 6 teachers in 6 weeks. I didn't learn a thing-And they left it on my transcript as an F. Also, I took a paralegal class that the teacher was supposed to teach to criminal justice-but used advanced material from Paralegal program & unless you had the prerequisites you were screwed. She messed up big time but I have the F. I hate this school-don't waste your money!

They are disorganized & incompetent. My girlfriends husband graduated in PTK garb only to get a letter 6 mos. later, he hadn't graduated!! Unbelievable, I've got debt for F's.

Now, they've got the system down & I'm an online student-it's Thanksgiving-there's no one to communicate with!! I've got deadlines, but no access!!!!!!!!!!Lastly, although I've been a high gpa student (3.86), Due to those F's & some other mistakes, they put me on academic/financial aid probation. One would think the intelligent thing to do would be to give this student a heads up-not screw then on every turn. I am transferring to another school because this one is incompetent!!
