I will say, I met many great peopleBrightOther
I will say, I met many great people at Marywood, and had many positive experiences. However, do not go to this school if you aspire to become a professional pilot. As a result of new legislation and FAA rules mandating additional pilot training, Marywood is not listed as an accredited institution, which means you will need to acquire approximately 500 additional flight hours whereas your competition will not:

I have serious concerns about the school false advertising to potential "customers" without being honest upfront. The industry, like many, is tough and has changed. You will need a competitive edge from a well-known school (or the military) to get a job. I interviewed for an airline pilot position 2 years after graduating and had more flight experience than anyone in the room, yet I was told I did not get the job because the interviewers never heard of the school. I can't say I blame them, either...after all, if you were to spend $40k on training a pilot to earn a type rating in an aircraft, would you take a risk on someone trained at a school you never heard of, or one you have a track-record with? I will promise you I never was asked in those interviews questions about philosophy, history, French, or the numerous other courses we had to take at the time. They (the interviewers) only cared that I could fly an ILS approach down to minimums and not kill everyone onboard.

If, however, your goal is to learn how to fly, become "well-rounded," volunteer, make great friendships, and are fine with the additional flight time requirements before you even see the right seat of an airliner, Marywood may be great. For me, I wish I was not so naive and did more research when I was in High School.

Question
Marywood basically treats youQuite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
Marywood basically treats you like a number. I had a medical condition and was kicked off campus because of it. I'm unable to commute and am banned from housing because of a medical mishap and I'm not a year behind on my schooling. Marywood does not care about you, but rather your money.

Marywood is a great school, it just isn'tNot so brightCommunications
Marywood is a great school, it just isn't really the school for me because of my major. I wish I loved it here. The campus is beautiful and students are really friendly. If you're looking for a school where you can get drunk every night, don't come here. It's a dry campus and Campus Safety are pretty strict on that. I'm not a huge partier and I like that on Friday nights, the campus isn't full of drunken people because everyone goes off campus to party. Most of the faculty are friendly and willing to help you if you have a problem. My only complaints are that there isn't really that much to do on the weekends and my major. Student Activities plans events but not all the time and not that many people go. There isn't really anything in walking distance and it's hard to get a bus. I recommend bringing a car although it's pretty expensive to park on campus. The communications major isn't that great. Everyone is really cliquey and it's hard to fit in. The equipment isn't that amazing although everything is getting renovated in two years. Overall, the major is okay, but just not what I'm looking for. I like Marywood, I really do but I don't think I'll be staying here.
