Tell us about your college experience.

I think that my school was the best fit for my busy life style, because it let me attend via my computer at home instead of having to actually go to a classroom.

Would you get the same degree if you could start over?

No, there are very few jobs avaliable for what i went to school for and i racked up over 140,000 in debt which i can barely pay.

What advice can you offer other students?

Think very hard about if you even need to go to college or not.
