    Expensive to be sure, but worth every penny if you put forth the effort to be here. There are a couple of students that I know personally who never do the assigned work and complain about the college, but that tends to happen when one is failing the course.... I personally cannot regret my decision to come here. Wilson is great about helping find financial aid as well. There are many scholarships, work-study, and grants to help you pay for school just from Wilson alone! read full review
