  10. I absolutely HATE it!
    What you describe goes on in every program--the cattiness, drama, etc. Don't give them ammo. If another student asks you a personal question, be vague with your answer so they can't make any dumb...

  15. Muhlenburg Nursing program vs Middlesex County College
    I only have experience with MCC, and the negative attitude and "holier than thou" attitude among the nursing staff is unbearable. Unless it's due to personal reasons, nearly EVERYONE passes the first...
