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.

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!!!!!!!!!
