    I went to the alternative due to an anxiaty disorder. The course pace was set not by what everyone else was doing but by my learning speed. I was able to spend more time on my problem course(Math) and less time on things that I excelle at like sceince. I was even able to take Intro to Business Law with John Cahill.
