A lot goes into making the school look good. They claim you need a bachelor or grad degree to teach yet I've taken classes taught by instructors with certificates;backwards school. The school forces the most useless classes unto you to graduate. These prerequisites are akin to going to the store and fulfilling your prerequisite shopping requirements before you you can purchase the item you want. "Excuse me sir but you have to purchase a bucket of shrimp, nail clippers and a bottle of shampoo before you can buy that tub of ice cream"; its the money. They have Capella University grads teaching, whether that's good or bad, you decide. Choose your classes wisely because quite a bit of them won't transfer. Anything lower than calc, physics, etc and you've wasted your money and time. Most gen eds will transfer; social sciences,humanities,English,higher maths. Take what you need that corresponds to the classes required at a 4 year school and get out quickly before you squander your money on things that will not transfer. If you take these useless classes you are essentially locked within their system to graduate with one of their useless degrees. I've dealt with my fair share of poor instructors who are only there for a paycheck. Go in and knock out as many general education "requirements" and similar classes that will transfer to your 4 year program and run. Only 1/4 of their degrees are worthwhile in terms of return on investment, everything else you can just read up on at the library without being charged ridiculous sums of money on in order to prove something.

It struck me that the administration saw us as money in a corporate way and nothing else. Others were unhelpful, distant or not even available at all. Then there were the students who treated professors and others like garbage and had little respect even for themselves. What a bad experience. I can't wait to get away from it. Do yourself a favor and go to a real college that will challenge you in a positive educational way, even if you have to pay more to get it. Really.

I have heard so many people bash this school. I find they are people who were not accepted into the program or people who flunked out and transferred to other schools. Any education is something YOU have to work at. You can't expect to be spoon fed info and have other people do your work for you or use all kinds of excuses. Ultimately each person has to pass the same boards!

They tell me one thing, then another. I am directed to many different people, and I get different answers from each person. My advisor had no idea what I was supposed to be taking, yet he mention he had been there for a while. They treat people like garbag, and try to get as much money out of the student as the possibly can. I am completely unsatified with this school, I refused to even go at first, but I had no choice at my current standings. I take some classes online, and I have one teacher who has yet to help me with anything, concluding me to fail this required course. I have emailed my advisor, and the teacher many times and never got any information in regards to the course. If I even received an email back. I have a friend who tried getting in and they are giving him an extremely hard time since he is in the military. This "college" should really reconsider how they run, and treat people.

My math teacher is really rude to certain students. If she does not like you by the end of the first week she will treat you like crap and make it unbearable to show up to class. I did run into some helpful and nice people. They went out of their way to help me after I made some huge mistakes on some paperwork. But the rude people far outweigh the nice. They screwed up my welcome package and sent it to the wrong address. When we went to correct it they had the right address on the computer but still managed to screw it up. Halfway through the semester they sent out a letter about medical records and again sent it to the wrong address again. Then they have the nerve to blame me for their mistakes. I'm so glad that I'm leaving soon. It was a huge mistake to go here. Thu, 01 Nov 2012 02:42:23 GMT http://www.studentsreview.com/NY/MVCC_comments.html
