I completed my assoicates at a local community college and to be honest it was a struggle. I was typically in classes of 40-100 students, the instructor usually had been in academia their entire lives with very little real work experience, and I felt like just a number. I wanted to try something a little different after I had a friend tell me about their awesome experience in the vet tech program at MSB. I am 2 quarters away from graduation in my bachelor's in business and have absolutely loved this school. Class sizes are as low as 6 and as high as 15. When I need help or need to speak with someone they get back to me immediately and know my name! Tuition is in the mid 450's but this quarter they just reduced it to $425 if you a full time student. They are a little more than my community college but less than any private school. Class Selection The thing that set MSB apart is that they are with you every step of the way. I had access to my advisor, I had access to the education department, I had access to my instructors. You will not find this involvement at any other school. Teaching Quality Here I have had really good and a couple of bad instructors. Most instructors are adjuncts that are working in their field so you do have professionals with real experience but sometimes they needed more time to hone their classroom skills. Overall though, the majority has been great. Financial Aid They walk you through the process step by step. You meet with your personal advisor each quarter and if you have a question or want to meet with them. Go to the front desk and they see you in 5-10 minutes. Accreditation If you plan to go here and transfer credits don't bother. From what I've learned their accreditation is much more stringent (national) but most schools adhere to regional accreditation so it can be difficult to transfer credit. That being said, the curriculum seems to be the exact same thing at my past college so I am a little ignorant on how that all works. I think technical/career type colleges are usually nationally accredited and schools that are a liberal arts type college are typically regionally accredited.
