BMCC has it's good qualities and bad. There are many professors who are hidden gems who not only teach very well but care about their students and give solid advice. Then there are other professors that make you wonder how they manage to keep their job. Still do your best in each course, you won't get good grades by doing bare minimum. All of the staff is pretty much the same. Some advisers are extremely helpful some not so much. The financial aid office is very rude and you can barely ask questions without receiving attitude in return especially if you're someone who isn't receiving financial aid already. There are nice opportunities here for students to get to know each other/find internships etc.(events are held & we typically recieve emails about them but there are also flyers all over the main building walls). Hope some of this helps!

I love this school! at first I was disappointed to go to a community college, however B.M.C.C is awesome. It not perfect, since some professors are terrible but the ones that are great care about their students and actually remembers you!, rate my professor is going to be your best friend. In a way it does feels like a high school, since there no parties, social life, housing, but the location is amazing, plenty of options to eat. The bathrooms are clean, the building is nice and big, the classrooms are small, it not a bad school. The only annoying part i didn't like that financial aid can be a hassle, but it's CUNY , so what do u expect. Don't be discourage to come into B.M.C.C. a lot of great opportunities, and wonderful professors, of and there's a option to take online classes, or go to different campus. My favorite was the Inwood campus, just wish it had more classes options.
Being BMCC student is an amazing experience for me! I love the diversity and professional atmosphere in the college. All my professors are very knowledgeable and caring. I also love the location, in the middle of Downtown Manhattan!
