If you're looking for a school that cares about you as a person go somewhere else. I had a heck of a time with the financial aid here. I went through all the paper work almost 2 months before schedule to make sure all the deadlines were met. Weeks went by and none of the financial aid was showing up. All the paper work was in and all the deadlines were met. After weeks of haggling the workers in the Financial Aid Office, they got back to me saying that THEY made a mistake in my paper work, and fixed it. But the damage was already done.

A lot of the teachers only have Masters degrees and some classes are taught by TA's or higher level students. This is not an acceptable practice and should be taken into consideration if you're looking for a school with good teachers.

A lot of the classes are small, but still taught by powerpoint. I am very verbal in all my classes but only a few of my teachers even care to take the time to know my name. Papers are usually graded WEEKS after being turned in…So you don't really know what kind of grade you have in the class for a very long time.

I will transferring mid-year this is so bad. Dorms are small and nearly windowless unless you live in the newer Griggs buildings. They won't switch you roommates unless they HAVE to, and even then they require group meetings with you and roommate; which can be very stressful and just make things worse.

Don't go to the school unless you're ready to be treated like a paying number and not a student.
