    PBA Orlando is a private school so tuition is higher than a public university, however, it is not out of range. Classes are small (generally less than 30 students) so contact with the professor is guaranteed. Relationships are easy to form because the campus atmosphere is so supportive and encouraging. Whether one is attending right out of high school or returning to school after many years (like me!), PBA Orlando provides an environment where students are challenged to stretch themselves and are supported on their path to achievement. Classes are comprised of a wide variety of ages, ethnicities, and backgrounds. In addition, most of the professors also have off-campus jobs which gives them more real-world applications and experience to bring to the classroom. Some professors have opportunities for their students to interact with professionals in the field.

    It's really expensive to go to PBA and they don't really help all that much in terms of financial aid. I wouldn't say it's worth all the money but it is a great school and if you can afford to go then I would definitely recommend it.
