    Courses covered some of the same material, times were not flexible for working students, tuition was very high, some of the students were very immature.

    PhilaU can seem a bit pricey, but really the school provides a lot of opportunities for students in a variety of areas. The closeness to the city, the different activities available for students, the job and internship opportunities, and the assistance available for struggling students are only some of these opportunities.

    PhilaU is supposed to have one of the worst ROIs of all US colleges (though it's argued this study was flawed) according to Businessweek. However, students who weren't a waste of space in high school generally receive a $10k or greater academic scholarship and the university's financial aid is always willing to help find ways to make school affordable. All of the professors are experienced and the school is well connected to the real world (Verizon, Maurice Kanbar, world-famous designers, architecture firms, and more).
