Flexibility of classes is generally great! Some classes don't have enough people to really be offered more than once a year, let alone a quarter (especially getting deeper into your degree). Generally if this is even a problem there will be an online option in addition. In my experience, the more advanced, less people in classes, are once a week night classes, which could make it easier to fit around a work schedule rather than twice a week.

Transferring credits, while I haven't done so myself, I've heard it can be pretty hard. I think a big part of this is the quarter system, other schools might not value a shorter class as many credits as it was worth. Choosing Baker, you can't really expect to transfer completely successfully, there are better options if you just need to get your basics done and transfer.

There have been a few classes that the directors that I have been talking to should have known that I already had the equivelent from a previous degree. There have also been some classes that involved more group work and student presentation than I would have liked. And MOVIES! I hate watching too many films in class. It's disengauging for me. There are some Gen Eds that could have been made to be fun, but were not. At all. Geography is an example. There are some great instructors however that care about you, and some that have been mentors of mine over 8 years. Others are very knowledgeable and have a lot to share.

When meeting my new advisor to switch from the Nursing program to the Medical Assistant program, she was very understanding and answered any questions I had about anything college related! Every Baker College employee I have interacted with has been extremely nice and considerate to me and other students as well.
