    7.7 /10

    My college is committed to a diverse and inclusive campus for all of us and employees, regardless of race and that is what attracted me the most. Also, they condemn all forms of anti-Black racism and all systems of oppression that deny individuals the right to equitable treatment, access, and fairness. My GPA was around 8.2. I had to submit an application form along with an application fee of $95.
