Detailed Ratings

I have only gone and visited Forsyth tech and have taking a tour. I met up with one of the advisors who was very helpfull and understanding of my inquiress. She took me on a tour of the school which is very easy to get around. She informed me how knowledgeable their professors were and how some of them have actual experience on what they teach. Their tuition was low compared to the other schools around me and financial aid is also available therefore making it easy to attend.
