Will learn a lot
Ive talked to a lot of professors, fellow students and even sat in on a couple classes. It was wonderful they are small in number this allows you the opportunity to get to know your teachers and your fellow classmates and obtain the one on one help if you need it;
Will enjoy being here
I have been to the Manhattan Campus it located in Midtown Manhattan easily accesible by any train in NYC. I have also been to the Dobbs Ferry Campus which is the main campus and gorgeous! All of the campuses are connected so if you take classes at one campus you will always know what goes on at the other campuses. There is always events going on at every campus, there is a lot to do at Mercy!
Bang for the buck
The tuition is very reasonable. As long as you have at least a 3.7 GPA you will get some type of assistantance grant or scholarship from Mercy!
Tips for prospective students
If you can hand carry your application, offical copies of your transcripts and fill out your FAFSA form you will often get an acceptance on the spot. But even if you do it online you will get a reply within a couple days or you can just give it a few days and call 1800mercygo and they will tell you if you have been accpeted and where to go from there.
Great for these types of students
Great for students who are interested in Clinical Laboratory Science, Vetenarians, Biology, Speech Therapy, Music Engineering, Art Desgin. ETC.

Make sure that the school's environment fits your criteria. Make sure the school has your major. Think about if you want to dorm or not.
Academic Rigor

Dorm Life
The dorm life at Mercy college allows you to socialize with the other students. You can be confident that you will make it to your classes on time, unless you just wake up late. You have more access to the computer rooms, and library which is good just in case you have projects or essays to complete.
Food and Dining
At Mercy College there are many deli's and restaurants, so there is a variety of food choices. There are things from sandwiches to candy being available. Just in case you don't like any of those foods, there is a kitchen where you can make your own food.
What to do for fun
There are many teams for both male and female. There are also different activities. There is a weight room so you can work out when ever you want.
Bang for the buck
Mercy college is the cheapest private school in New York. Private schools are really expensive so this school is not bad at all.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
The school colors are navy blue and white. There is a program called the PACT program. It is where a student has a mentor who helps them academic wise.
Clubs and Activities
There are many clubs and activities. You can never get bored. There are teams from women's softball to men's basketball.
Campus Safety
Mercy college is in a safe environment. As well as most schools, there are I.D card requirements to get into the students' dorm building. There are security guards on the premises 24 hours.
