Best in North America at that time. Situated in a city that has a great culture, weather and job opportunities. Had a course that I loved and could not find in any other college. Course was short compared to what other colleges had to offer.
Very intense 1 Year course with instructors and guest lecturers from the industry. Would have liked to have opportunity to work with a work visa and bus pass discounts. Fees are very high. Too compact to catch up.
