    Time and stress management is an extremely valuable asset if you are going to attend this school. You really have to dedicate a large amount of time to school work, and it may be difficult to keep your head up when you are constantly working until 4 in the morning and have to get up for an 8am class. Just remember that the terms are short and it will be very, very worth it in the end. Also, here are a few things the school doesn't tell you about that you should really keep in mind: The massive tuition isn't close to what you'll be paying, materials for classes and printing costs alone will be quite a bit extra. Also there are many people who have to stay longer than 8 terms, because of financial reasons, internships, or the fact that it is impossible to complete some of their scheduled classes on time.

    Wait until a year or two after high school. The rigor of this school is not like the one of high school, you are responsible to yourself and there are not set classes where you will have someone looking over your shoulder and holding parent teacher conferences if you are not keeping up with the work. If you wait to come and attend for the last couple of years and finish a BA after junior college there is a better chance you will graduate with better grades and not be overwhelmed and drowning.
