I should have done way more research beforeQuite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
I should have done way more research before choosing to throw away money at this school. Technically I'm an "out-of-state student". Mind you that, 1. Yes, I attended and graduated from a high school in Texas whose county line was on the Texas/Louisiana border anyway, and 2. I transferred here after completing 2 years of college work at a different Louisiana University. With being said I should have ran for the hills after my transfer paperwork was somehow mysteriously messed up and in the university's words "incorrectly answered". You see I was accepted in to the university by transfer but once I go down there I was told that not only could I not be considered as an in-state transfer student and pay in-state tutuion and fees, I also had to retake nearly 18 hrs. of credits, because upon further review of my previous school's transcript those classes were unable to be transferred. Not because I had low grades but because they had to be taken and only taken under UL curriculum. Since when do school's not transfer P.E. and speech credits??? I was also put on an in-state probationary period where I was required to only be enrolled part-time during the length of 3 consecutive semesters in order to be reclassified as an in-state to avoid having to pay out-of-state fees. Again I was transferring from another university in Louisiana. Had UL would have mentioned any of this bullcrap from the beginning I would have never even considered this place. To make matters worse most of everyone here is a representative of all the small surroundings cities and areas that make up the Acadiana area. Needless to say the vast majority of those people are ignorant, close-minded, incompetent, vindictive, and flat out blatantly racist. This whole area is stuck in 1920s loop were minorities are expected to be subservient to anyone of white cajun descent or anyone whose name ends in 'eaux'. This school, this city, this whole area is a f*****g joke.

I entered this college and was only acceptedBrightArchitecture
I entered this college and was only accepted because I was over the age of 25. I had my adviser tell me that I can choose my own classes which I did without any real guidance. In my freshman year I took an economics class that I should have taken in my senior year, but was not advised otherwise. Needless to say I passed with a B. The following semester I scheduled math, but was pulled from the class because my advisor because she said I should have been in remedial math. Once she actually looked at my math scores and saw that I was in the correct math class she clould not put me back in the class because it was full.. I subsequently left and registered at Liberty University in Virginia. There is a real racist culture at this school. I would not go there ever again. The education is subpar and at the time on 32% of its students actually graduate.

The nursing program although cheap which is aQuite BrightNursing
The nursing program although cheap which is a positive is outweighed by the lack of proper communication and substandard help from the teaching faculty. For some reason they care less whether you submitted your assignments or not, if you had a good reason such as their website failure which it does often, the professor would still blame you and still give you a fail even if you resubmit your assignment. my GPA suffered a blow due to this one 5 credit hour class.
