I attended UAT for about 2 years. I will say this: About half of the people who attend there are grossly incompetent, and you will unfortunately have to deal with these people on a regular basis. (However, the other half range from brilliant, to exceptional in their field). In addition, for financial matters, you are mostly left in the dark, as well as what classes you need to take and when you will graduate.

Thanks for the input.
So do you think it would be better to just get a BS in Computer Science from (I'm in Colorado) something like University of Colorado at Boulder or University of Colorado at Colorado Springs?
