I think that school is ripping people off because you are required to take certain classes to graduate and you are having to hope that you can get into a class because they make the class sizes so small. For instance there may be a psychology class that you have to take and they only allow 35 students into the class and you would think that you should be able to get in but if you last name comes at the end of the alphabet by the time it gets yo your time to register the class is already full. My last name being Turner, I am constantly dealing with this issue. Also I believe tuition is too high here, especially because they have cut the semester short to 9 months, actually if you count the weeks its less than that. I don't discriminate against other cultures and language but if you are requiring me to take a statistics class then the teacher you put in front of me needs to be able to speak clear English because that is not a class where you should have to guess what the teacher is saying.
