WHAT I LIKED

MPC is a great option for those looking to avoid/lower future student loans since it is free for the first two years. You make a lot of connections and get a lot of opportunities.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I hoped that there would be more in-person classes at this point but a lot of courses are only offered online and that can be hard for a lot of students.

WHAT I LIKED

I love how helpful and responsive the teachers and counselors are.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I started it during Covid and the initial switch to online was disappointing since they waited until the beginning of classes to officially state classes would be online.

5.0

WHAT I LIKED

I really liked MPC. Most of the professors are very helpful and want to help you succeed. The students at MPC are also really nice.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There isn't much to dislike, except I came across one professor who didn't seem to care very much about the students. But that was just one and the many more I've had.
