Mercy College Reviews
Review Mercy College
Mercy is a small school that's good for students like me who need their professor's attention as well as close-nit classes. I enjoy a lot about my program here at Mercy, but i can't help but see the many flaws the school overlooks. I have hope that they're beginning to get fixed however, and the new dorms are a great start. Professors don't use their TAs and often don't even have them. The food is pretty bad and the cafeteria only stays open until 8:30 and some days 7 which is terrible for me because I work and have to plan when I eat around my schedule. The financial aid and PACT offices are also VERY unorganized and letters and important information often get lost or are too confusing to understand. Overall however I do want to say that the professors in the Exercise Science program are amazing and they've kept me interested in what I'm doing this whole time. They make me want to go out and research even though Mercy doesn't offer many opportunities for it. I can't wait to continue the program with my amazing professors and classmates. They're what keeps me going!
When I first looked at the school and the vet tech program, I wasn't super impressed. I chose to go to another college, and found myself very upset there and started to look into transferring. I decided on Mercy because I had seen it before. When I got here, I was shocked and so mad I hadn't come here in the first place! Everyone on campus has been so friendly since day one, all the professors I have had have been helpful and good, the food actually isn't bad, and the vet tech program is amazing and much better than the previous one I was in!! I was turned away by the negative reviews left, so I wanted to leave a good one so looking seniors will have a real experience, and not an upset kid complaining. Mercy is wonderful, and if you are looking into the vet tech program here I recommend it so highly! The program's staff are willing to speak with you and help you in everything and the program is always improving.
Mercy is okay overall, but there's a lot of flaws. Mentors are okay, financial aid always messes up my loans, the dorm rules are limiting, the food isn't great, there isn't much school spirit or community-- but if you're in the right program it's worth it to stay. I've had a lot of amazing professors. If you're interested in the Music Industry and Technology major, definitely consider this school because the resources and connections you can make with the professors and guests that come through the studio are extremely valuable. Also, the three recording studios are state of the art and students have full access for both class projects and personal recording projects. Any other major, do more research to make the right decision.
