Tips...be proactive and take control of your college experience. Don't rely on others to guide you through the process. This is not high school. Take what you can from the experience be it the knowledge imparted during class work or the experience of navigating the very choppy waters of the admissions, financial aid, registration, and graduation requirements. I would whole-heartedly recommend this college to anyone and would repeat the experience if given the chance. I completed my BS in 2 years while working full time and raising 3 kids. Pros-self paced-to a degree, teaches self-discipline, innovative learning program. Cons-lack of face-to-face interaction, isolation, miss out on the periphery of the traditional college experience. I was accepted into law school with my BS from Charter Oak. It is an accredited institution that offers a convenient learning program to those who truly want it.
Chancellors at the College of William and Mary have included some very famous retired statesmen, including Margaret Thatcher (UK Prime Minister), Henry Kissinger (US Secretary of State), Warren E. Burger (US Chief Justice), and, currently, Sandra Day O'Connor (US Associate Justice).
