I simply filled out an application and was acceptedJul 18 2004Communications
I simply filled out an application and was accepted. I even submitted it late in the summer and was still accepted in time for the fall semester.

I do not recommend PCC. There are other Christian colleges (like Liberty, Tennessee Temple, Union University, and Cedarville, just to name a few) that may cost more, but you'll have a better quality eduction overall. If you're going to consider attending PCC, visit the campus before you register and don't be afraid to ask questions to students and faculty. If you sense any hesitation in their responses or that they either aren't being completely honest with you or they just aren't telling you the whole truth -- it should be an immediate warning flag to you that something isn't right.

Also, call the college admissions office and request a copy of the Student Handbook (the actual rules and policies students are required to follow and obey while they attend PCC), and not a copy of the college catalog either -- ask for it by name: "The PCC Student Handbook". When they tell you that's not possible, ask why. They won't send you one -- they don't want you to know in advance what the rules and regulations are because they know that if prospective students knew what they were getting themselves into, at least 7 out of 10 students would probably consider going somewhere else, and the remaining 3 will only go to PCC because tuition is cheap.

Remember that in life you get what you pay for. If you want a quality college education, perhaps you should seriously consider paying a bit more for it in order to be in an environment where you're treated like an adult. In the end, you'll be glad you did. But if you go to PCC, yes, you'll save money, but you must consider how 4 years of PCC's influence with them as the authority over you is going to affect every area of your life -- emotional, physical, mental, spiritual -- for the rest of your life.

You've read the comments here and see an overwhelming opinion that discourages other students from choosing PCC. Don't just dismiss it as disgruntled former students venting their frustrations. Notice that the majority of the complaints are legitimate concerns and that they are coherently and intelligently written. That many negative criticisms should tell you something. Invest in your future -- use your money more wisely and go to some other college.

I would highly recommend that you visit and talkJun 14 2004Education
I would highly recommend that you visit and talk to as many students as you can...make sure they give you an honest opinion. Many students do like it there, and you may be one of them. I was one of the many students who refuses to even go back to visit.
