Any school is what you make of it. At this point in your educational career, a teacher can not teach you anything. Rather, point you in the right direction and enable you to think and foster ideas. Here is one problem with BMCC: you will find that a majority of students are not thinking how they should be! These are people who are caught up in something and are not applying themselves! I personally found it hard to feel inspired in class. For example, in English, I found that many of my classmates were not serious and did not try to intellectually contribute to the lecture. I found it insulting that these students do not know what an education can do for an individual, aside from work. There are quality teachers at BMCC but you will soon discover that because the admissions are so fluid and the admission standards are low, the caliber of teaching weakens. If you take your time to create a real relationship with your professor, you can discover that they are incredibly intelligent and full of stories! That is, if you are in a class with a good professor. There are some teachers here who, like some students, have fallen through the cracks. I find the school to be very lonely because it is very big and diverse and spread out on 4-5 blocks.Plenty of clubs to join and opportunities to grab. There is a tremendous amount of room for growth, personally and intellectually. I think I made a great choice coming here because I find many of the classes to be easy, and it gives me time to teach myself at my own pace.
