Make this a last resort schoolJul 30 2015Unknown
Make this a last resort school. If you can go somewhere else that has everything you are looking for, is affordable, and you can see yourself at: GO THERE. If you do like Montclair and for some reason you can't go to this other school, than it's up to you if you want to attend MSU. I won't stop you from going there, if you really like the school and that's where you want to go, then go. I wish everyone the best of luck.

I was in the EOF program here (they aren'tApr 02 2015Social Work
I was in the EOF program here (they aren't involved at all) my counselor told me that it wasn't her job to help me with my schedule.

Went to random events still feel like I'm an outsider.

I was a B student in high schoolJul 20 2014Biology
I was a B student in high school. Montclair highlights this on their website. That's really classy. I took above average classes and I should have never come here.

If you get and you want to go then you have to go the chemistry department. You pretty much have no choice. There are perhaps 2 serious research labs in the department (you have to do research no matter what you want to do with a biology degree): one in neuroscience and the other is in zebrafish as a model for cancer. If you don't get into these labs, you pretty much don't have a shot in the real world. DONT BELIEV ME?! JUST WATCH!!!!!!!!!
