WARNING! YOU PROBABLY WILL NOT LIKE THIS SCHOOL IF YOU WANT TO PURSUE A CAREER IN THE ARTS.Every professor I've had outside of the design dept. Is grossly unprepared. I've had a math teacher who teaches his hour long quantitative reasoning class with only short math tutorials from Youtube. The class contained over 30 students and It was impossible to get individual attention. Instead of helping the class, the teacher flirted with girls and talked about how he'd rather be home watching Jerry Springer. This was an early 9:30 am class and I could have stayed home instead since he never engaged the class or entertained any questions. If we did not understand we were told to go see a tutor in the Midway building, a small building City Tech uses to hold classes outside of the main building. The tutor room is always overcapacity with too many students you can barely ever get enough individual attention. I received a low grade in this class having not been in school for a while and I forgot most of the math I learned in high school. Lazy, careless teachers like this are all over City Tech. Of course I've enrolled in classes with teachers who cared about doing a good job but the amount of under performing faculty is too note worthy.I major in communication design. I went to city tech to gain enough credits to be eligible to transfer to the Fashion Institute of Technology where I major in Computer Animation. Having graduated from a vocational magnet school, the High School of Art and Design, then attending the School of Visual Arts, I know what a good art program looks like. City Tech's design department is good for helping students figure out what they want to do in the art world, then go do it at a better school. The New York City College of Technology has a competent design department to say the very least but it is not very impressive mostly due to the mediocrity I see in so many of my class mates. There is no auditioning required for this major so the school sucks up all the riff-raff of undecided young who couldn't get into real art schools. The instructors accept their mediocrity without challenging students to up their ante. The large amount of inexperienced students coming from average high schools with little or no art programs makes for a dull talent pool. Most of the students in the COMD department are just looking to test the waters and be introduced to the field. Every art class I enrolled in made me feel like a big fish in a small pond. Teachers gave me a break on numerous occasions because I knew the material so well there was nothing to teach me. I actually ended up teaching some of the teachers and embarrassing them in front of everyone. I learned nothing new except for what I learned in a 3d animation class. Which is a senior class. I entered City Tech with 40 credits. Normally I would have to take many prerequisite classes before I can take this class but since I already took a 3D class at a different college, I was given permission to enroll. In other words, I was only able to take this class, which is geared towards learning what I actually want to do for a living, because I cleverly exploited a loophole. Everyone else who wants to be a cartoonist, animator, or Illustrator has to take 2-3 years of classes mostly focusing on design. Boring (If this is already your forte).If you are talented and have high hopes and ambitions for your artistic career, do not go to City Tech. If you are 100% sure of what you want to do with your talent professionally and have the grades to go elsewhere, do not go to City Tech. If you want to seriously improve your skill, do not go to City Tech. If you want to study one thing, like illustration, animation, fine art, film, photography, and study it to the max, DO NOT GO TO CITY TECH. It will slow you down with rudimentary courses before you can get serious with you Major's focus.Don't waste your time with this school if you are serious about your art career. Audition for a college that has more specialized art departments, like FIT, SVA, RISD, Cal Arts, SCAD, NYU etc.

If you want to learn nothing, this is the college for you. Many but certainly not all professors there are arrogant. They look down at the students attending their college. The staff will give you classes carelessly.They don't care if you learn anything with the schedule they gave you. They can have an EE major taking an art class but missing a math class on their schedule,Or CS major taking chinese class instead of a math class. If you are smart, avoid attending this college at all cost. You will waste your money and time otherwise. They don't expect their student to learn much either. They force you to take elementary classes despite you have shown them the proof of mastery of elementary concepts. They also break their promise like nothing when ever they have excuse. They penalize people for the sake of giving penalty despite wasting their time. A bunch of jerks will rips you off if you don't obey them like a nerd. . Definitely the worst place to learn anything. But perhaps a nice place to waste time and sit through.

My acceptance into the "Medical Laboratory Program", was almost put to a halt corresponding to the bias opinion of a female professor from India. My placement into this program was contingent on my grades. A white male professor reviewing my grades said; " It seems you have the prerequisites and the grades to gain acceptance in this program. BUT.... A comment clearly expressed from this Indian professor was; " You can't let him into this program!" And he said; " He has the grades and prerequisites." I can't see why I can't accept him into the program. ". She then added, " He can't be accepted into this program because he's.... Do you know what high school he graduated from? We have students from prestigious and reputable high schools and they don't make it. What makes you think he'll make it into this program!" His remark then was, I can't deny him entry when he has the entry qualifications. Her final remark was; " then it is up to you." His face was reddened and he clearly expressed embarrassment with her remark of...." he can't be accepted into this program because he's...... ". Must admit, the program was tough....but this Puerto Rican descendant made it too, in spite of, " because he's.... " A continuation: after graduation from this program, my 1st employment's salary was $5.35 cents an hour. If I would have elected to work in house keeping, my salary would have been $6.00 dollars an hour. I got a scholarship to attend NYU Medical Center. My salary before I retired was six figures. Moral? The university and the program must B a carefully, well thought-out choice. Because ultimately, the final choice is always yours!!! Continuation 2: A student objected to the extreme difficulty of this program. He said; the nursing program is less demanding and the pay is better. The professor's response: You would look real nice in a nurse uniform. Also added: This is a institution of higher education, not a institution to get a job!! Moral: There is never justification in defending a program's extreme difficulty by utilizing negative and destructive reasons, that undermines a student's genuine concern in succeeding in a program, with the lack of compassion and understanding to the student. This is clear notice to you, to leave this institution and program.

True, the office part of this school sucks big time. People that work there are burnt and do not feel like seeing anyone that approaches them. They do forget that we do not do what they do and there is no explanations to the dry requests they throw at you. When I registered I had to go home and come back for three different documents. Granted, we should read the requested list before getting there, but if we did everything why would we need paper pushers? Once you are registered, admitted, and settled in the field of your choice (also lucky enough to not have to go back to the offices ever again) you're up for smooth sailing. Just like most schools. this one has a hand full of dedicated and aspiring professors as well as some lazy, ignorant a--holes, that stopped trying and stopped perfecting their craft once they got PhD attached to their names. The computer field is the most noteworthy field in this school, just like economics is to Baruch or law is to John Jay. Other fields wouldn't be that much recognized (hopefully things have changed in the last 2 years). Cleanliness in the place isn't that bad, considering there are 1000 unruly pigs roaming the premises at all times.
