Overall Rating

So far I have had some bad experiences with not being able to get on my e-mail; I have had to contact the school to get into my e-mail twice. I had to go to mandatory orientation on a Saturday from 7am-5pm and was told that they did not have my transcripts; which they actually DID have them but was then told that they were just not evaluated yet and no more evaluations were going to be done that day. It was a disaster; I was sent all over campus; I had no idea where to go, and no one showed me, needless to say I missed out on the entire orientation trying to get the whole mess figured out.
