What do you like least?

"Everything else. Administration is horrendous, out of touch with the students. Raised tuition during a global pandemic without ever offering an explanation for what the money goes to (this increase was communicated to us 2 weeks after being reassured by the administration that they would not increase tuition). Told in a town hall meeting "it's not the administration's fault that students take out extra loan money to buy nice cars so its the student body's fault that cost of attendance continues to skyrocket" Im not kidding that actually happened. 1 and 2 year students have virtually 0 opportunities for research and have had extremely limited access to campus without any communication on when the school would offer vaccinations. Clinical students are forced to find their own rotations as the school has extremely limited options and hardly any options in specialties of interest. School was bought by medforth some for profit company who also owns a Caribbean school. We were told by administration that our tuition money was used to evacuate students at this school when there was a hurricane warning. Administration cares about making money and nothing else - opened a second campus in utah without telling the students that lectures would be broadcast over both campuses and the two campuses would be considered one cohort. They get double the tuition money without hiring more faculty or providing any additional resources for students" Report Response
