Academic Flexibility: I'm extremely happy they have weekend schedules for people that have other commitments during the week, like me I work full-time, but the way the externship program works sucks. They expect us to come in on Fridays for 10 weeks for 4 hours for clinical review but my job won't allow me to miss 4 hours every Friday for 10 weeks.

Academic Flexibility: I enjoy my school. They have helped me out in a lot of financial situations. I'm 56 years old and trying to get a better education, so I can make better money. So far my grades are very good and hopefully will stay that way. I just need help with financing my education.

Academic Flexibility: There is no flexibility at all at my school. It is a proprietary school and does not run like an average college. Each program has its own syllabus and classes run right in succession, every 5 or 10 week term. If someone fails a class, you have to wait for it to come around again with the class of students behind you. For example, if you fail a DMS class, you have to wait 9 months for it to run again with the new class.

Academic Flexibility: Not Very Easy – There is no flexibility as far as the times in which you can take your classes. That is one of the reasons I am applying for scholarships as I have not been able to work because there is no flexibility in the classes. The school did not take my credits from Pit as they are 10 years old, therefore I had to retake all of the my gen-ed classes which cost me more money and time.

Academic Flexibility: Sanford Brown Monroeville, PA – I have a very large class. At one point every single person has had an issue with financial aide. They seem to just want your money and could care less about how your actually doing. Limited resources available. I cannot wait to be done!!
