| Jan 16 2013 | It is my personal understanding that Morehead does not have standards. Granted, I am not from the area and have been told by locals that their educational standards are sub-par in relation to other areas. That being said, I am familiar with the expectations and effort put in by both graduate and undergraduate students here. The current undergraduates do not know correct grammar, and telling them they needed work on this was met with disgust and anger. Honestly, if you want to go to Morehead, all you need do is apply. I know for a fact that they accept students into the graduate program who received an 800 on the GRE (for those of you who don't know, I didn't realize people could actually get a score this low).
For those from the area, who have no other options: attend MSU, and enjoy it. You will learn something. For those who have received an education of higher standards, avoid Morehead, as you will be embarrassed by classmates and faculty, in their behavior and demeanor and standard of excellence.
Morehead was quite easy to get into, as any state university in any state is. However scholarship availability is set at a higher more competitive rate, and just because you get in does not mean you will be successful. The quality and difficulty of the education received at Morehead, in my opinion, is equal if not greater than any of the other private universities in the state with higher acceptance standards. I applied and got right in. I recommend that students stay away from Kentucky colleges unless you just want to go to technical school, then just stick with KCTCS.
