Default Anyone know anything about CCNY???

I was online researching schools that have Meteorology programs and City College of New York came up. I was wondering if anyone had attended this school or know anything good or bad about this school? Does it really have a Meteorology program? I was looking at other schools in the area that I know have Meteorology programs, Rutgers and Kean, how does CCNY compare to those schools? Any information will be greatly appreciated.

If I am not mistaken, I believe it is now a University and is known as CUNY.

City University of New York rather than City College of New York. You might be able to find more info about it if you look it up with that name.

The City College of New York is one of several colleges that make up the City University of New York. So CCNY is the correct name, but CUNY is the university system as a whole which includes: Brooklyn College, Lehman College, Queens College, and Baruch College, as well as several other community colleges.

CCNY is a very good school and very respectable. I'm not too familiar with that major but I do know that the program exists there. And there were students who transferred from other colleges to CCNY specifically for that program. It should be a rather small program. You could probably finish up there and easily get into a graduate school program which is probably necessary. CCNY grads with high GPAs normally do well when going to graduate school and the degree is well respected across the country. It is known as the "Poor Man's Harvard."

Thank you very much. I usually get a lot of good answers on this forum, I didn't think it would be that hard to get them on this thread.
