I wanted to have a smaller campus. There are another college close but have way more people and I didn't like it. Also, I had the choice to directly apply to the branch that I wanted with this college or not. It's why I took this school over the others. I wanted to directly go into Law and learn so it would be easier at University.
It's hard. The normal way to do it is in 3 years but I decided to take it in 4. I got out of high school and it was so different. I failed some classes but I still want to go over there and finish with a diploma.
