Anyone attend this school? Is it a good school?
|By Sar (Sar) on Monday, July 21, 2003 - 09:33 pm: Edit|
It's a wonderful school if you're self-motivated. I'll be attending it in the fall.
The resources are all there--you just have to take advantage of them. I don't think enough people do so, or maybe they're too shy, or their families disapprove of risk...
It's a great buy for most people, and it's a godsend for people who need second chances. It is a major source of NYC's mid- to upper-level workforce. It's got 8 nobel prize winners, I think.
Search online for "the poor man's Harvard." It may not be called that today, but it's still there. ;o)
It's currently undergoing some renovation, and it's got some new facilities and revamped programs... and the students there are generally very down to earth (though sometimes a bit too self-depracating if they come from a prestigious high school where all their friends went to Ivies lol But I know some people choose to come to City College instead of attending ivies or other prestigious universities where they had been accepted). have you visited it yet?

Kaku teaches there doesnt he? How is the school in general?
|By Sar (Sar) on Sunday, December 21, 2003 - 08:42 pm: Edit|
yeah i think he teaches in the City graduate school, in physics. i love his writings... too bad i'm going into medicine so i'll probably never get to meet him.
the school "in general?" that's kinda hard to answer... anything more specific?
~shrugs~ I'm pretty happy with City College so far (i'm in the undergraduate school, taking basic courses, and the teachers I've had so far have all surpassed my expectations in dedication, teaching style, and knowledge). The students... they're more varied. We are learning in a microcosm of the nation. ;) There aren't that many advanced foreign language courses here, cuz we don't really need any. lol

Here's a scenario for all of you considering CCNY:
A CCNY graduate is looking for a job in a business firm or any company that is related to his major. He's having an interview with an employer and here's the scene:
Person: I'm really excited and I would love to work in this company and make things happen.
Employer: Yeah, so what college did you attend?
Employer:............... Could you excuse me for a moment?
(Employer goes into the bathroom and starts laughing his ass off in the floor)

I'm sorry Majinjoy1, but that is garbage. Even the grammar is garbage.
And I'm also sorry that I don't have the time or patience to refute this garbage, because my grandmother is currently very ill.

Yeah,... keep working on that one.

Majinjou1, be nice. It's not your degree thats going to make you in the long run, it's who you are as a person. Majinjou1 why were you being so harsh anyways? I mean what was the purpose of your crappy hypothetical situation you set up for us?
|By Sar (Sar) on Tuesday, January 06, 2004 - 10:46 pm: Edit|
On that... oh, well, for one, I will have to work on my spelling. lol
again, sorry, Majinjou1.
I agree, Savedbythebell7. Your ultimate credentials are what you make of what you have.
But on second thought, I'm wondering if Majin's actually had such an experience. In any case, I don't think that employer will be successful for long... although he did have enough brains to laugh in the bathroom... but then, not enough brains to laugh standing up while in the bathroom...

I'm not saying anything bad about CCNY. It is a good school and I definitely suggest it to anyone who wants to end up in MacDonalds, where I'll see both Sar and SavedByTheBell7, asking me "would you like fries with that?" lol

You're a debater.
Let's at least see some real research and debate here, instead of outright, disrespectful ridicule of an institution you don't even know about (by your impression of it, you apparently don't).
This is the last time I will respond to you, Majinjou1, unless you start making some sense.
|By Majinjou1 (Majinjou1) on Sunday, January 18, 2004 - 08:24 am: Edit|
1. I'm not a debater. I have seen how the activity operates and it's pretty cool. I couldnt stay much cause your mom wanted me home with her.
2. What I do know about CCNY is that I'll see you there. You and maybe SavedByTheBell7 holding hands walking to school.
3. So now you wont respond to me? Boo-who!. Why dont you cry me a river Sar. Who cares if you respond or not. I never posted in regards to responding to you and I don't expect you to do so either.
4. Who stays up to 1:16am trying to defend CCNY? I feel for you.

Your statements indicate that you haven't learned much from participating in College Confidential. You need a vacation from this web site---even more than others need a break from hearing such ignorant remarks.

Majinjou1, it is sad that folks like Majinjou don't really understand what goes on in life. CUNY was THE school for immigrants throughout the early and mid 1900. Many of the top lawyers, doctors, writers etc. did their undergraduate work there. Even today, it has a great reputation for quality. Moreover, there is an incredibly strong alumni network due to its reputation and age of the school. It is very easy to get jobs if you got good grades from CUNY.
Most people believe that if you don't go to a top ivy or LAC or top science school, your life is over and you don't get a good job. That is incredibly idiotic. In fact, a professor at Princeton did a study on income over a life time of ivy vs. non ivy types of graduates. His conclusion was that it generally didn't pay to attend an ivy school or even a top private school.
