I decided to go to Sam Houston State University for various reasons. One reason was cost because the tuition price is fairly low. Another reason was the location. The school is located in Texas and I am from Texas, so it made sense to go there.
The course curriculum is challenging but doable. It is different for each class, but it is able to be done and to be done well. I have managed to do well in my courses thus far and have been able to make the deans list.
