MATC is awesome for people who have lives outside of school. It's also great for connecting you with people in your prospective career and building up your networking relationships. The only problem I have is with the registration process, which is a little confusing. There are no email reminders or notifications to tell you they haven't received the proper funds before they drop you from all of your classes, causing you to scramble to re-enroll in the same sections. This won't be a problem if you set up the payment plan, though!

I had applied for the Associates degree nursing program. I met an old high school classmate and made new friends.

Nursing program itself was hard. Teachers there were a variety. you had some you were awesome at taking the time to explain things in layman's terms if needed. Then, there are the other teachers who aren't knowledgeable and read directly off power points during lectures.

They also offer tutoring services from previous graduates or students who have completed your course. There is also an academic center that helps you write essays / paper. Although I only used there services once for my paper feedback. It is only helpful if you submit paper well in advance before paper deadline. Do NOT expect a quick turnaround time when using academic center for papers.
Something that I did like are the teachers. I would say way more than half of staff, teachers, and volunteers are very nice and opened to conversations. Leave less tension and awkwardness within the halls when walking to and from class or even leaving for the day. I also like the diversity and the same opportunities given for everyone. Something I would change are the size of classes, the communication, and a lot of less technical issues for online schooling. Also, a lot late classes being started or not knowing exactly what is going on in scheduling.
