Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2015

Academics Rating

Classes are very big and not very personal which could be challenging for some, it provides growth in knowing you have to rely on yourself to learn the material. The tests are of high standards, but they have a lot of people helping you get through it. Workload is high, professors are extremely busy and hard to get ahold of, but they are very intelligent.
