For somebody who's not sure where they're headed, and who wants a friendly, relatively informal environment to get their bearings, build up academic contacts, and generally figure out what they want to do, CMU Montrose is very hard to beat--you have a ton of flexibility and plenty of dedicated professors eager to help you excel, all at a price that blows most other schools out of the water several times over. Couple that with the fact that you're getting full credits that most colleges will accept without question, and Montrose's campus, despite its small size and limited resources, is very appealing. If you think this is a place to earn a degree, however, you're going to be disappointed. Either you're going to be taking online classes or you're going to be traveling down to Grand Junction several times a week.
