I'll go ahead and give you the honest truth. I'm from Alabama and I joined the military. I decided to go to UAB online. Each class costs around $2,000. I started to get to know some of my classmates, even add some on Facebook. I began to realize I, being a Caucasian female, was a minority. Then I realized 90% of people in my class HAD to be going there for free while I was paying $6k a semester. I always wondered why they didn't do military discounts. They simply can't afford it because they have to pay for all of these broke people with family on welfare. It's not fair at all to me. Another thing the teachers LOVE to do is make you work in groups. How in the world could a group project ever go right with everyone living in different states and most of them going here free?! I'll tell you how…it can't! I was stuck doing a 5 person project pretty much by myself. I'm switching to Southern New Hampshire University and letting all of the broke family college students take over this wonderful school.
Wow. just wow. Honestly, majority will definitely benefit you. Have fun at Southern New Hampshire University!
responseThat was the most ignorant comment I have seen. I don't think you are a real college student. If you are I feel sorry for Southern New Hampshire University
responseThis is absolutely the most ridiculous comment I have read. I am a graduate of UAB and currently working on my Masters at UAB also. UAB is a top notch school, and apparently you are/were not equipped to handle such a prestigious university. I have taken online classes out of state as well, and if dealing with that course load is not something you can handle, consider going to a community college where you reside. I would have though that someone with your "level of intelligence", would find challenges intriguing. Instead it seems that you are still trying to understand how the world works. You definitely have some growing up to do. Good luck!
