Courses were going great until we had an instructor change. Second instructors first year teaching so we felt like her test students. We did not learn as much as we deserve with how much we are paying for education. This college is not so much hands on as they advertise, sadly. Front office is a mess, well for me it was, with their constant need of paper work that I had already been asked for. The only great thing about this college is the ability to provide good externship sites.

The price is almost double of other schools with the same program. The actual program seems legit, and the director seems to have great intentions in the education of the students. Although it may be expensive, I am hoping it is worth every dime.
The admins/advisors are really nice. Some professors are really rude. Maybe it was just towards me because I tend to ask a lot of questions, but overall they did prepare you for the future and your career. I met some great friends here, as well as the professors who wrote amazing recommendation letters.
