    The cost of the school is not that expensive compared to other universities out there. So I think for a four year school, it is fairly non expensive.

    oftentimes you have to make sure you stay on the staff that are handling your paper work. they oftentimes misfile and forget certain documents. therefore, leaving you to handle all the payments and copying yourself. so when you apply make sure you have proof of your papers and backs also. you sometimes have to do yours and their job too.
