Major: Business - Management and Administration (This Major's Salary over time)
I attended 4 years and graduated without any problems.

Most negative reviews are from students who couldn't even suck it up for one year. Nearly all the people that I graduated with that actually stayed four years and received a diploma would have positive comments.

Those who hated it after 6 months are the same people that hate any authority in their lives.

Yes there are rules such as no drinking, yes there are curfews, and yes there are dress standards that must be followed. Who cares? It's not that hard to follow. Anyone with half a brain can understand the reasoning for the policies and abide by them.

The work stations are easy. It's even fun. Once again those that complain about working 15 hours a week are the same people who are going to simply break down and cry once they are in the quote real world. I'm graduated now and have to work 60hrs a week just to pay bills! So like I said, not a big deal, and actually the work experience can be helpful with some employers.

Overall I would recommend College of the Ozarks. You can learn a lot if you apply yourself and you'll make some lifetime friends too.

My advice: If you're looking for college as an 'escape' from the 'rules' of your parents, as a place to 'party' it up, then this probably won't be a good fit. You'll most likely be expelled in the first 6 months and then have the opportunity to post a negative review on this website.
