What advice would you have for someone considering the program?
GO FOR IT! please! do not let the doubt over take you. The online school is legit and I have successfully applied for my FASA and am awaiting for a response. It took me a year and at times I just wanted to quit and go with what I know but give it a try. Get it out of the way!!!
