It's just your average school. I wouldn't say that this is a dream school for sure.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

It's missing that unique factor.

I liked that I could take most of my courses online. It allowed me to be flexible as a working mom. Multiple assisted me throughout the process of enrolling and starting my classes.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I think everyone hates how much school is. I am fully online and tuition was 7k. I couldn’t attend without loans.
