    This is a much wiser choice than going to a University, especially if you're unsure of what you want to do. It is way cheaper and you still get a great education.

    You will take all of the same classes here that you would the first two years at a university. It really helps you learn how to study properly with less risk.

    Very affordable in my opinion some students here take advantage of the fact that the average class cost is only 270$ and they stop showing up, or they think they can skip class, me on the other hand take my education very seriously.
