This college contacted me because they saw my 4.0 GPA online and offered me a scholarship for $18,000 a year, and since I can live at home and commute to this school that would save me a lot of money. I chose public accounting because it gets you a degree equal to an MBA in a 5 year or less time period.
I believe it is hard but for good reason, and not too much that it makes it impossible to pass or have a life.
