They have one of the best ASL interpreting programs in the country and they are a small school which is what I was looking for. I got an email about applying for free so I filled out the application and within a month I knew I was accepted. Out of the three schools, I applied to this one gave me the best financial aid options.
It's a great curriculum. Going into a field of study where I am not apart of the culture the professors make sure you have connections and are there every step of the way to make sure you are prepared.
