What Students Are Saying

3.96 Average Rating
Call the school or go online to the website to fill out all the paperwork needed. Feel Free to call the school if you need anything. READ ALL THE PAPERWORK they send you. They send important information. Once in the college don't procrastinate and STUDY!!! (buy your books online) and don't forget to enjoy your college years!
Lucia from Los Angeles, CA
Make sure you give your all once you start. Nursing program is extremely competitive. It is a small school so make sure you are out of the high school mind set and a serious college student. Learn to say no before you start, so you won't feel bad to saying no to go clubbing or a party. Also TIME MANAGEMENT.
Sayra from Whittier, CA
No matter what college you attend, you are going to have to work. You have to be willing to study and work hard. Mount St Mary's is a great college and they provide top tier students to the work force for every major. But you need to make the decision to work hard, study hard, and socialize. It is all about balance. You have to learn it, practice it, and live it. I hope you make the right choice.
Nicolette from Diamond Bar, CA
Study first, play later. Make sure you take any extra free time to study. And if you feel like it'll be nerve-wrecking to make friends, EVERYONE is friendly at the Mount, especially the professors. Just take the time to talk anyone and everyone. It makes a difference for someone's day if you take the moment to greet them outside of class.
Jamila from West Covina, CA
ask questions, either if you are planning to live on campus or commute, asking current students how that current school is will help you figure out if it fits your best needs.
Carolina from Chula Vista, CA
Make sure to stay on top of your things especially financial deadlines or else there will be fees to pay.
Get to know your professors; go to their office hours.
Get involved.
For pre-nursing students:
Make sure to get good grades, especially on your science classes. so take advantage of all the sources you have to accomplish that.
Cindy from Sun Valley, CA
Be sure to make all deadlines and always call MSMC directly if you have any confusion about them.
Megan from Los Angeles, CA
Always do your best it doesn't matter hoe hard it is because at the end it will all be worth it !
Diana` from Huntington Park, CA
Don't worry about your first day here; you if your are lost just ask around and people will direct you where you have to go. The teachers here are also very, very, awesome, and they really do care whether you pass their class. Don't buy the books if you can - rent them - it actually helps save money. Also if you didn't get into a class, and its closed, you can always go on the first day of class, and most of the professors let you join their class. Try to befriend upperclassmen. They will know what teacher are out to get you, and what classes are a piece of cake. Go on ratemyprofessor.com to see what reviews professors have gotten - it actually does help you in choosing your classes. Some classes, you wont really need a book, you will depend on the PowerPoint slides that the professor makes, so ask around and find out what the other students that have take that class say.

There's a few things about MSMC that you should consider before coming here: it's a very small school, so you pretty much know everyone. It's great academically because you can form strong relationships with your professors. Also, if you're looking for a great social scene, this is not the school. If you want to party, most girls go off campus. And an all girls school really isn't that bad, it's pretty fun because there's no boys to impress. If you want a typical college experience, don't come here. But personally, I love the school for what it is. I feel at home and comfortable with the Mount.
