Get everything in writing, especially where it pertains to any tools or supplies, and any other expense for which you are paying via student loans. Keep track of every financial detail including who/when, and let them know you want to read through an itemized bill before you sign off.Wish I could go back and have done just this for the time I was there. If I could go back, I would have done more research about my intended career and the prospects for getting hired in my field, at a livable wage.Don't believe the hype, sorry to say.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™

I love it here so far.Everyone who works here is invested in the students and it really shows.Mrs. Sandra is especially amazing.
