Major: PreMed and Medical (This Major's Salary over time)
This has to be one of the worst schools anyone could attend in the nation. I already hold a BA degree. Going back to school after 10 graduating (from a different school). I am just trying to get my premed prereqs for medical school. I would do whatever work is necessary to achieve an A in all classes. Since I tried to enroll here, right up until the end of my first semester (now), the administration has been incompetent at every level. From admissions, to student financial services, to advising, to biology dept, to graduate student center, etc etc etc. Every single office I have visited has been unhelpful. I feel like I am getting treated like a number and not a person. Every position in administration is filled by an incompetent, unintelligent, uncaring, or inexperienced employee. CSUB has time and time again messed things up, from my transcripts, to fees charged, to prereq waivers, etc etc etc. I am amazed the college can manage to get anything done at all. I haven't been able to enroll in classes that I need. no one has been able to meet with me concerning my needs for weeks. Everyone acts like there is nothing they can do to fix their own office's or other office's mistakes. I just get the runaround. The only reason I am continuing on with my education here next term is because it is the ONLY college in town (unless you count junior college). The headaches and frustration from dealing with the utter incompetence of this university have been distracting me from my studies, and taking up my valuable time running around trying to put out the fires they are causing. If you can go to school elsewhere then please do so. THIS IS A BAD SCHOOL!
