    Do your work get your grades grab your scholarship money for classes and then head off to finish your degrees elsewhere. This school is a good starter place to get cheap credits compared to other colleges.

    You can get a very good education without having to get yourself in debt. There are a lot of experienced professors that can be very helpful and give awesome advice.

    It is far less expensive to go here than to other schools. If you had a good GPA in high school, then the college automatically gives you something called the American Dream Scholarship. Everything is paid for, except books (which you can get on Amazon or Chegg for a few bucks). You will lose the scholarship if your GPA drops below 3.0

    i dished out a lot of money (hundreds upon hundreds) for 1 of my classes, the professor took the opportunity to be disrespectful to me and told me i should have dropped out in the first month.... not because i was failing, but because i disagreed with him on calling on me too much. dead serious. theres professors who are just teaching to be teaching, they dont give a crap about what they're doing and would rather not be there. i had one professor tell us that we were his most hated class, and he has been cranky with us. remember reading about a professor getting beat up so badly after class a while back? that was miami dade college-- and it was my campus. honestly i'm not surprised.
