3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Sometimes they understand about personal problems and commitments and other times the faculty does not understand you are an adult learner- that you have a car payment, rent, etc. to afford and expect that your commitment to the university somehow trumps the real world that everyone else, including them, lives in. The general consensus is that high school graduates are important to them and adult learners are not nearly as important and held to a different standard. At one point I remember describing why I wanted to take a class in a different semester due to the coursework required for one of my other classes and the counselor replied that my solution was to just stop working and focus on my education. Clearly she was delusional and didn't realize that I cant simply stop working when I have bills and rent and personal obligations to worry about. Sometimes it feels very catered to young adults, not actual adults.

Overall Experience: MC has good and bad qualities, but overall I would still chose going to college in Rockville again. It is only a community college so you cannot hold it to the standards of a 4 yr. university, but it does a very good job of hiring the right professors to educate students. If MC hired the right counselors to help students transfer; they would be in far better shape and not over-retaining students.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The courses and professors are excellent; my only caveat would be the performance from some adjunct professors. Sometimes there are a few bad apples. I would say the overall experience is great though. You can completely tell that the full time professors; especially those with tenure at MC, greatly care about the subjects they teach and imparting knowledge to their students. I'm thankful for almost every professor I've had so far.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: You will get out of MC what you put into it; in other words, if you are willing to apply the required effort to graduate or transfer: you will do so and doors will open for you. If you are content to skate by in classes, you will be content to spend more time at MC than you need to and find that your prospects dwindle the more time and GPA you waste.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: They have the courses you need, but not enough professors are teaching and proctoring them. What ends up happening is many students from many majors end up waitlisted trying to get online classes.

3 College Junior

Student Body: Everyone finds their group eventually and if you do not have one- not having a group becomes your group. You'll run into people just like you. The cool thing about MC student body is that there is a group of people that you will connect with and you will have a good time on campus if you're willing to get to know people and socialize. If you're an adult learner, or first time freshman out of high school. - you will make friends and engage people.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I've heard many horror stories of students not being notified about issues with their financial aid and needing to drop out for the semester. I myself have not had any problems and find the process, although arduous, completely manageable with enough time and energy.

4 College Junior

Career Services: From what I understand, the post-grad networking is great at MC, but I have yet to experience it.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: I changed majors twice already and now I'm doing it a third time. The guidance counselors do not really know what they are talking about and I was driven to a major that did not work for me in both cases: accounting then architecture. I am continuing the major of construction management with no desire to move forward in it, but simply because it is the closest in terms of credits to graduate; I'm stuck with it. I'll be taking the STEM math and science courses I need outside of my major to transfer into an engineering program on my own. I wish they would have been more informative when I started and less eager to simply let me figure it out. In either case I lucked out- almost none of the engineering courses transfer to other universities so my skipping them and doing the prerequisites only is saving me one headache. Some students look for direction when they ask for help, not just for someone to listen to them and that point is missed every time I talk with a counselor.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: The professors are great. I absolutely love and respect the hell out of them both for the intelligence they posses and their ability to command a room full of adults in arrested development. I have not had a single professor here that has not made my education more fulfilling or enriching. This is the one thing Montgomery College has going for it.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: the library is great, but it's usually swamped with people by 1p.m. if you're going there to study don't waste the time. A better place to hide and bone-up on any class is the PC lab. The computer science kids are really easy going and its usually dead silent so concentration is not an issue.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: There are plenty of resources to use at Montgomery College like computer labs, writing center, math centers, libraries, and there are a lot of interesting programs. The Macklin Business Institute are one of the programs I am planning to apply to so I can have a greater chance at transferring to a good business school. The professors give you feedback and are there to help you if you need any help.
