4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Many of the professors at the school know their subject area very well. Although more often than not, some professors are just there to get paid and that's it.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I know that the college is uses the alumni pool to help students for prospective jobs.

College Junior

Career Services: The highest level of education available is a Bachelor's Degree. Anything that is post-graduate would have to be attained at another institution.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Although I do not qualify for financial aid (which I thought I would this year due to my sister starting college as well) I do have Florida Prepaid available to me. Even with Prepaid, it doesn't cover all of my expenses, with books, programs and software it is unbelievable how much money I spend per semester.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: I really enjoy the School of Education Program. Within the program everyone is very helpful and the instructors want to make sure that you succeed.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: There are a variety of different classes and academics available to the students, which is great because with our population it is very important that we have the demand for our students.

2 College Junior

Online Courses: I have only taken two online classes, a math and a science class, and I feel that due to the lack of instructor attention and promptness made my experience a terrible one. The work load was pretty much reading the book and answering 8 different assignments that had relatively no relevance to the material and frankly, it was annoying and dis encouraging.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Up until I completed my Associate's Degree choosing classes was very simple. Before the beginning of each term you were sent an email that said when you can start selecting classes, which worked to my benefit because that day I could choose classes I picked them online and there was never an issue. Now that I am in the Bachelor Program, all my classes have to be chosen by an adviser which I really don't care for because I have to wait for my adviser to be in the office in order to choose my classes. If there was some way BA students can choose their own classes like AA level students it would be significantly better.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: The resources on camps are very important to the campuses because without them our colleges wouldn't be able to function. The staff are very personable and attentive. It is a priority that each student is taken care of in a prompt and timely fashion.

4 College Junior

Student Body: The good thing about Miami Dade College is that it is one of the largest in the country, which makes our student body very large and diverse. With students coming in doing dual enrollment students (taking college level classes while completing high school), to those who are coming in to better themselves in professional developments. Our students are some of the most diverse in terms of pursuing different career paths, it offers our students a variety of options. Students who give back and are essential to our community's social, economic, and cultural growth.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Re-applying for financial aid was hectic for me. I was asked to do a million different things and was still denied assistance. After talking to different people and waiting for weeks I was denied.

3 College Junior

Student Body: I don't really know anyone at my school. I typically only interact with other students if it involve group assignments in class.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The class sizes were ok not to big. But some of my professors pretty much just spoke about the topics and didn't really teach via class participation. I honestly didn't learn much from the professors, more so from myself and the textbooks.

3 College Junior

Career Services: I have been told that the school will help you search for a job after you graduate. But I honestly don't know to much about it.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: From what I've been told this field is very competitive and there are waiting lists to be excepted in medical scool. Which adds to the stress level.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: The school offers a wide variety of classes to take and advisement helps as well with the process.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: The staff was helpful and treated me with respect. There was on one instance when I called the financial aid office I was place on hold for over 15 minutes three different times.

2 College Junior

Online Courses: I didn't learn much. I would rather sit in a classroom. If I needed help it came from a video that showed the same problem over and over.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I have had a great experience with almost every experience at my college, except seeking help from an advisor l, financial aid, or registration. There are never enough of people helping students in the wait time ranged from an hour or longer.

3 College Freshman

Student Body: The school is very diverse and there are many programs available for everyone who is interested.

Overall Experience: MDC is the school I should have chosen a long time ago but it's probably for the best this happened the way it did. I appreciate what MDC has to offer, I love it here so much that I am at school about six days a week.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academic Flexibility: I've had a lot of trouble with getting my credits transferred in, some classes counted and others did not. It was necessary to take some over. I recommend not only for this school but any, if you are transferring pay close attention to what happens to your classes.

5 Recent Alumnus

Student Body: MDC has groups that cover a large spectrum. There are religious, science, arts, academic, business, etc. name it an most likely there is an organization for it. We also have a student government that speaks with congress and officials on political views and agendas that will affect students.

4 Recent Alumnus

Career Services: The professors and administrators act as the link between outside sources and the student
