    The transfer-ability of the courses at this college seems to vary, but I have seen mostly positive results. Great way to save money to transfer to complete a bachelors.

    Definitely a good deal for the money if you get the right professors. Especially if you're moving to Traverse City from a place like Flint like I did to go to school there.
