based on 4 students ratings
I applied to hunter college when I was a senior in high school because it had a good reputation for a CUNY school. CUNY schools in NYC are located in the city and cheaper than your traditional private college and it was the main reason I applied. the admission process was easy. I also applied to 4 other CUNY schools because you could apply to them under the same application with no additional application fee. I also applied to private schools and SUNY. I was accepted to 11/12 schools; denied for Columbia and waitlisted for NYU. when I applied I had a 1480 SAT 31 ACT and 93 GPA.
This program is one of the only nursing programs in the city with affordable tuition that could simultaneously give me my BSN upon graduation. There are only 100 people accepted per year and to get in you need to take an exam to get in called the NLN (it's like the ACT ) they also judge you based on your GPA (minimum 3.2) and personal essay. before you apply for the nursing program you need to do the prerequisites which are very specific classes listed on the website and given to you at orientation. You need to complete all these classes by the end of your spring semester and have to get a high GPA. When I was accepted I had a 99 percentile score on the NLN, and a 4.0 GPA.
The reason I opted for this particular college was that it was affordable so I wouldn't be in debt so early on and it was very close to home as I am one who gets homesick easily. I was able to get over my decision and I am happy now.
I personally don't like the Common Core Curriculum as it forces students to come to any answer by only one way which limits them. I believe students should solve the problem however they want as long as they are learning along the way and realizing their mistakes.
This college had the least amount of yearly tuition and is known for having a good pre-med program. I also wanted to go to a school that was within close proximity to where I live. I did not want to travel too far and the commute to this school is just right.
The course curriculum is excellent. We are able to take academically challenging classes that regard to our major and also be a part of classes that we find interesting for our electives. The choices we have the classes we take are a good amount of options.
Good English programs as well as teaching programs which I was at a time considering pursuing and it offered affordable tuition that my financial aid covered. It was an easily accessible and beautiful location in the city.
I think that the concentrations for the English literature language and criticism major could use some more leniency because I ended up taking some classes I was a lot less interested in just because they fit certain criteria, and I felt I missed out on taking more classes I was interested in.
