  • Feb-20-2014 I am a current student here

    When I was applying, I was on a fast approaching deadline. The staff put in 110% effort in getting me enrolled on time. One on one contact with the staff, I know personal effort was greatly applied for me.

    The institutes graduation rate is the highest in the state for a reason. We have more students graduate from professional programs with jobs, before they even graduate from their program! Your advisers may not always know best, so confide in professors you respect; I know I owe a lot to my professors who steered me in the right direction.
