As a new student I found the process a little overwhelming, especially coming to it later in the game! Overall it has been a good experience, I've met some nice people and so far am enjoying my classes and teachers. The only thing I would complain about is I felt a little rushed when making class choices, I would have liked a little more guidance.
Review Midlands Technical College
Other posters have stated that MTC is very friendly for adult learners, who work. I would DISAGREE! If you need any tutoring services or need to go to the library forget it. The campus hours are until 5pm on most days, 5:30 at the latest. I have to take time off from work anytime I need to handle anything administrative. You can take a lot of general education classes at night, but once you hit a certain point in your program most of the classes are only offered during the daytime. Other than that, MTC is a great community college.
Midlands was an okay technical college. Some great teachers and some terrible teachers. The facilities were always clean and many of the employees were very helpful. Something I would change is communication throughout the school, especially with the admissions and financial aid offices. I had to go back many times with questions and got different answers almost every time.
