Chesapeake College is a strange place. On one hand, they expect the best by only allowing a 93% to be considered an A for all pre-nursing science classes with two of those classes being taught by a MIT graduate. On the other hand, they have classes taught by teachers who may have not even received a college degree. With the right class schedule, the school is to par with universities, with the wrong, it is worse than high school. Most frustrating is the lack of scholarship or aide for those already with a degree, while students who are struggling maintain full-rides.
Review Chesapeake College
The two words I would use to describe this school is affordable and practical. I found all of the staff whether they be administration, advisorship, instructors, to general faculty to be friendly, helpful, and overall good people. I would highly suggest to use this school as a stepping stone to transfer to one of the state universities, saving you money and giving you smaller classes.
There is a fairly limited selection of courses, but most of the professors are great. Many courses are offered online, and some are even hybrids. Class sizes are small, so you can get a lot of extra help if needed. Three or four of my classes had less than ten students!
