I chose Redlands because it was the only school in Southern California that was flexible, attainable, and diverse enough to accommodate my unique career goals. I truly feel that I am learning here and all of my professors (so far) seem to support me. I believe that part of the reason I have received exceptional assistance and encouragement from faculty is due to my enthusiasm for the work, which is sometimes lacking in other students. Generally, though, most people work hard here. I am not too active on the social scene but there are plenty of people here who are, so if you are looking for community then Redlands is a good place to be. I just wish it was less expensive. Depending on your aid/scholarships, certain amenities can be a good value. Others are outright outrageous. Redlands could charge $5,000-$10,000 less per student and still be a great school, in my opinion.

This school was the best choice for me because: 1.) It is in a convenient location. It is pretty much only 1 hour away from everything. 1 hour away from my house, the beach, Disneyland, etc. The surrounding area is mostly nice and the downtown area is a cool place to walk around. 2.) The student population is small. I feel very connected to the campus and am able to be more noticed with my small class sizes. You get to know professors very well. 3.) I am able to graduate in 4 years with my BM in Music Education as well as my single subject teaching credential. The 8th semester can be used for student teaching. 4.) Although the price of going to this school seems expensive, I actually received more aid here than other UC and CSU schools that I applied to.
