What is your overall opinion of this school?

Mercy college is the perfect specific healthcare undergraduate school in Iowa. They prioritize students learning and have the best professors to learn from. The only things I wish they had were sports and a cafeteria. I've been at Mercy for 2 years and their programs are intellectual with a wide range of different education options.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My experience so far at MCHS is superb! I transferred 2 years worth of credits into my DMS program and had little to no hassles at all. Professors and staff were always very helpful and knowledgeable and I will forever remember all of the positive experiences I had with each of my professors. I personally love the challenge and the fact that the curriculum is rigorous to prepare me for my career in healthcare. If it were easy, the value of the education would be severely diminished.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

i think that would be a great school to attend if you are interested in the medical field specifically without all of the fraternities and sports. But the teachers seem very nice and all of the staff are extremely helpful and are always there to answer your questions.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Mercy college is the cheapest school out of all the private colleges in New York so finances is much of a problem. Financial aid is great at covering most of your education. Your only required payment would be for housing which is paid every semester with your meal plan. Now with the meals they aren't so bad. just as any college you would expect to go to the bathroom more often than usual to prevent "Freshman Fifteen". THAT IS NO MYTH! The greatest part about eating your pain away is being able to go to the gym very early in the morning or even take a jog following a safe trail on a nice day. The neighborhood is great and the city is pretty close. I can talk about this school forever. This is a college you can call home. Welcoming all of family and friends to enjoy it with you also.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I could go back in time to give advice to my high school self, the single most important thing I would say would be to finish school. My high school self, even with effortless straight A’s, decided that I was bored. I decided that I could either waste my time in the classroom or I could be out in the world actually earning money. Then the day came that I realized that waiting tables was not the exciting and fulfilling destiny that it seemed to be when I walked out of school. Eight years after dropping out, I got my GED and completed a vocational program at my community college. I am now 39 years old and finally reached a point where I could pursue my real dreams. The dreams that I could have pursued right out of high school, if I had graduated, are much harder to attain at my age. To my high school self, I would say that, in your rush to stop high school from wasting your time, you wasted some of the best years of your life. That one bad decision causes repercussions throughout your future life and will probably always haunt you.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

College goes by faster than you expect, so first of all, enjoy every moment. Don't be afraid to express your opinions, both in class and socially. You may get grief from some people, but in the end, you'll be a stronger person for defending your beliefs. College is a small step in a life-long journey of learning. If you're doing something that you don't love, then change what you're doing. You're never too old to make a difference in your own life and in other people's lives. And finally, to quote Baz Luhrmann, "wear sunscreen"

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Despite logistic and scientific limitation of time travel, given the opportunity to scare the living daylights out of my eighteen year old self, my approach would be fairly simple: grab the shoulders of my gothic, red headed, pierced 18 year old self, shaking them vigorously whilst yelling, "Go to college! Seriously! Just go! Find a way to make it work! Because until you are 24, it is free due to low parental income and FAFSA! And future you failed to jump on that free pass, and now faces $90,000 in tuition over the next 6 years! Go to school now, and when you are me, you will be a physical therapist and not have $90,000 of student loans! And although the mental and emotion impact of this encounter may be out of my/our range of expertise, I would be able to rehabilitate any spine, neck or shoulder trauma as a result of this! At this point I'd imagine some sort of pre-set time limit would be reached, and I would be transported back to the present, leaving a bewildered, traumatized former me to freak out briefly, smoke a cigarette, then, hopefully, go register for classes.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I could speak to my high school self I would let myself know that having a large number of friends will have no impact on my future. Family and then school should be my highest priority. I lost one of my brothers just four months ago, he was only 23, and it was a shock to the entire foundation of my life and family. I know that going back in time won’t change the course of his life but I hope I could explain to myself what is really important in life. Besides being closer with my family I wanted to instill in myself the value of my education, not for myself but for the change I would like to create in the world. I spent my summer in Egypt where I visited a psychiatric hospital and was appalled by the way the patients were treated. My goal is to use my ability to speak Arabic and knowledge in psychology to remove the stigma of people suffering with mental disorders in the Middle East. I would also like to give the patients the treatment they are in need of but lack in their cultures state of mind.
