Tuition cost was least even though still have loans. Other schools in the area were too expensive. Cost per hour was cheapest here. Other places were 1k it more. I don't appreciate these costs. Public colleges should be free.
The curriculum is hard and unfair when it comes to grading. GPA scheme is unfair. Fail rate is high for several classes. The administration doesn't care. I don't believe this course is helping me in the future.
The large campus, but small class sizes. The ratio of students to the professor was comfortable for being able to network and make connections. The class times were easily manageable. Most importantly the tuition was cheaper than my home state.
The curriculum was manageable and actually pertained to interesting topics. It also focused on the way language is changing and how the francophone world is so diverse. It was very focused on the present day with the ideas of past literature to emphasize modern problems.
