A******s from Albany

I think that its a good school to be in but its not diverse and the tuition is too high specifically for families that get less than 20,000 yearly income....and students that really want to go there should be taken seriously even if interview is needed...not everyone gets the grades they want...example: i set very high standards for myself but because i don't have as much access to education as another rich person have i don't understand math that well but i try my best and tests are a obstacle in my way and its hard for low income kids to have grades higher then those that are white and have higher house income....
