I went to AU from 1986 to 1990 so awhile ago. I would say the school is decent but the value compared to a good state school is pretty bad. In addition if the career counseling has not improved since I was there, then I would strongly recommend against going here. Its biggest weakness was that the faculty advisor did not advise and the career center did not actively engage students to let them know the best way in which to break into a career. Fortunately for me, while attending grade school elsewhere I had a professor who was a fabulous advisor and provided great insights.
