was great when I first enrolled.
Since then the
administration has isolated itself from any student or alumni concerns
and proceeded to dismantle what was once a talented and
inspiring faculty into a bunch of PhD-toting drones.
I had one of these “new additions” to Emerson's faculty
actually retract prior permission he gave for me to be
absent from a class after I already purchased plane tickets
and then dock my grade a full letter. When
I complained to the dean of the department, he actually
told me not to worry because “grades aren't important.”
Tell that to my law school admissions office.
commenter was dead on in reccomending a class with Bethany
Nelson — too bad the school has since isolated one
of its best teachers in a poorly-paid part-time position (despite
resounding outcry from students, alumni and faculty).
In short— don't
go here. The school is clearly in decline.
