AVOID AVOID AVOID. This school sucks all around, and is in no way in heck worth any where near the $56,000 they want for tuition... you'd have to be insane to pay that. Its not even worth a tenth of that, because you learn absolutely nothing in the classes... they take your money and expect you to learn everything on your own from a text book, and then come in for the midterm and final exam. All they are is one big testing center, as an aside, and there is no 'teaching' worth anything going on. Their money goes into using underpaid undergrad and grad labor to do weapons research for the government, and they are just a shill for the military industrial complex, nasa, and big pharm co.
