Metropolitan State University - Minnesota Reviews
I love my university because it's centrally located, wonderful staff, and amazing student services. I really appreciate this college because it's so easy to become discouraged about the process of school, but when you look up there is always a warm and welcoming university facility or staff there to help you. Thanks Metro State for being just amazing!
There are incredible professors here who really care about knowing the students interpersonally and helping launch them into success after graduation! The resources here are top-notch also. If you're looking for a job or worried about the look of your resume, the Career Resource Center is standing by to help you through that process. Overall, a really great school if you're willing to overlook the traditional college experience and focus on your academics.
If all you're looking to do is get in, get your degree, and move on to an average low/middle paying job then Metro is fine. If you can afford to go to a better school then go somewhere else. If you are looking to come out with a competitive degree, contacts, and potential for high-paying entry level salary from a top company then Metro is not for you. Classes for your major are barely offered, and a majority are online. Your XXX 101 course will have 8 teachers conducting it, but your upper level graduation requirement electives will have maybe 1 a semester, maybe. Advisors are not active, and do not tell you requirements unless you stumble upon them yourself and ask. I do not recommend Metro for someone with ambition to make competitive salaries; however, if you just want the title "Bachelors of XX" then Metro will cheaper and easier.
