    The emphasis, as usual, is on grades instead of education. Many students are so focused on getting the highest grades that they do not focus on what the content actually means. Also, the workload kind of gets in the way of studying itself, depending on the subject. Students go to college for education, and to pay as much as we do here, then students should expect a little bit more. Centre may be overpriced.

    You'll get a lot out of your 46,000 a year a Centre. As far as finding a job after, good luck, unless you're into science.

    Though it's a wonderful educational opportunity, I consider it quite overpriced. I come from a middle class family and feel like I am always drowning in debt thinking of paying for this and law school. Scholarships only get you so far.
