Do not come to this college!! It is entirely over priced—$27,000 a year if you just want to be a commuter!! 40,000 if you want to live on campus!!! Again I said a year, that means in four years, if you live off campus for all four, you will have spent (and/or owe loans+grants) roughly $108,000 on just living off campus. If you live on campus those four years=$160,000. This goes to show that if you go to this college as an undergrad and receive your BA or BS you will have spent more in just your BA degree than most people spend going to a Cal State receiving their BA+MA and even doctorate degrees. So the money you spent going to this college for just your BA could have been money well spent receiving your BA+MA+doctorate degrees at a much less expensive university. I wish I had never gone to this school. Yeah, it has a nice campus and some of the profs are nice but it is not worth it. Every college in Southern Cal has a nice campus and mostly decent profs who are helpful. I have taken 3 classes at a JC over the course of my college career and honestly prefer the way the JC helps me with what I need to do rather than Concordia. I have found that Concordia loves to tack on useless things for you to fill out so they can get you to spend more money. Most colleges do not make you go with health insurance that cost $1,600 simply because you do not have your own health insurance, but Concordia does. Every year you have to either have family health insurance or you will be charged $1,600 for health insurance you do not want. Same as filling out the forms, every year you have to fill this form out as well as an unnecessary housing form if you already opted to live off campus the year before. They make you fill out so many forms that you have already said no to the previous year for unexplained reasons to me. IF YOU DID NOT READ MY ENTIRE REVIEW READ THIS…DO NOT GO TO THIS COLLEGE, GO TO A CAL STATE OR CAL UNIVERSITY. DO NOT GO TO CONCORDIA IRVINE.
responseI regret coming to Concordia every day. It is horrible and the campus itself isn't nice looking at all. It looks worse than shit. I know of elementary school teachers who are more knowledgeable than those who teach at Concordia. Concordia isn't a real university, it's more like a junior high school and a dumping ground where all the dumbest kids you meet in high school were dumped.
