4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: The curriculum is strict, but some teachers may accommodate with the student.

2 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Transferring credit was a huge hassle. A single person is responsible for it, so she will occasionally miss your e-mail completely. You have to send the occasional reminder if she doesn't get back to you. The school is also very, very rigid in it's curriculum, so many credits don't transfer at all. I was lucky enough to have attended college before and had some electives I could transfer. Math, english, and physics are your best bets when it comes to transferability, but getting out of any core classes is unlikely, and getting out of an art class is unheard of. The curriculum changes every year, so if you're trying to get some credits at another, cheaper school with the intention of transferring them, you have a very high chance that the course will no longer be apart of the curriculum by the time you get in.

5 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: I had a very smooth experience, personally. I didn't even have to tell them that I had credits that could be transferable (I didn't even know I had any!) They told ME that they ascertained that I had several credits that would take care of elective and degree requirements and completed the transfer process themselves. It was a really great surprise!

Academic Flexibility: Classes are a work in progress

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: In order for the school to fit a five plus year plan in a four year window, there is not much, if any, room/time to take on electives and explore. The teachers are always more flexible, than the administration, but there is always the fact that it varies between the individuals you talk to. Some classes of interest overlap by a 20 minutes because of poor scheduling decisions, and even with teacher overrides from both sides, the administration will still refuse to grant the student the class.
