Central is a boringBrightPreMed and Medical
Central is a boring school. The reason it is so cheap is because the education offered is below par. Housing is horrible, the food is disgusting, and unsurprisingly there's nothing to do. EVER. If you value your education and the college experience, AVOID CENTRAL AT ALL COSTS.

Question

I'll try to keep my biases to a minimum. I came to Central as a last resort, as I had problems with financial aid at my other college and Central was the only school still taking applications when I needed to switch (June). I came in knowing that I was not the type of student that went here, but I clung tightly to the phrase, "you'll learn to love wherever you go". It's winter quarter of my first year here and I've already developed a bitter taste in my mouth. The university absolutely does not care about their students, so much that they won't close the university during a declared state of emergency just so they can make money. Classes are comparable to community college but at university price. Even though Central is developing a reputation as a party school, it isn't. Social life on campus is broken and quite lame. Honestly, I wish I would've just went to community college for a year and waited to save up some more money to go to my choice school, because I find it surprising that Central is accredited.

Question
Teacher wise and course wise, I have noBrightUndecided
Teacher wise and course wise, I have no complaints as they are pretty good. The only thing I really am upset about is the Financial Aid office. They gave you "courteous" emails the day AFTER you get charged extra for being 'late' and trying to sign up for classes. They are a horrible and unhelpful department who assume you've read the FAFSA site from front to back. Words can't express how angry I am at them for being irresponsible and unhelpful.
