College of San Mateo Reviews
Review College of San Mateo
I would definitely choose CSM if I had to do things over again. Counselors are nice, classes are fairly easy to get into and they evaluated my previous transcripts in a very timely manner. The student body is nice, welcoming and social. I've joined a few clubs and have found them helpful in the transfer process and also have given me priceless skills I can take away with me to a four year. Overall really happy here! I love all my classes but I would scope out the professors on ratemyprofessor.com before committing. Like any school, some professors are more effective teachers than others.
So far I have just done general ed classes to transfer, but I am so happy with the classes I've completed! My professors were better than the private university I used to go to (so that says a lot). Workload is average. Professors are mindful that most students at CSM work part or full time and are usually very flexible as long as you don't miss too much class. Curriculum is challenging at times and moderate to heavy studying is expected. Facilities are clean and sometimes modern, the science building is my favorite!
College of San Mateo has been a good stepping stone for me. I am currently a student there furthering my career. The counseling office and the counselors have been extremely helpful in assisting me with choosing the proper classes needed for transferring. They are very eager to help you - as long as you show you want the help!
