I loved learning Paralegal work, as now I landed a job working with my degree! I had amazing teachers and classes that really helped me prepare for my career.

The overall college is nice, the location isn’t. We have some amazing teachers and some not so much. I had probably the best teacher anyone could ask for and the college ran her out, a lot of people were upset and I don’t blame them. We got another teacher to replace the best and he decided to yell at a student who may have deserved it but didn’t deserve to be yelled at in front of his peers. I wish I could say my overall experience is amazing. But I can’t really do that. My schedules are always messed up or I don’t get them until a day before my classes start. And yes some part of the classes should be self taught but if the entire class is like that, it’s too hard or a bad teacher is being given to the students who are there to learn.
Everything is well and good besides when they changes the course they said that our classes would transfer when we gradauted and they do not, most other schools or colleges wont accept it and would have to start all over again.
