7: Personal Reflection | When I decided on engineering as my major in college, I always thought I would go to N.C. State. I thought about expanding my options for college choices and decided to consider Elon University. I like the fact that it has a dual enrollment program with its engineering degree. The only negative to that is it will take five years to graduate. I guess two degrees in five years would be a plus when I begin looking for a job. Elon is a much smaller school that the other schools I have considered. I knew that Elon was a private school, but did not realize
8: the tuition was so much higher. I noticed on their website that the tuition for next year has increased by $1,000 over the current year. Although there is scholarship money, I am not sure that Elon is affordable for me. | Reflection(cont.)
