Is This School For Me?

I think that this school is for me because it is known for Business and that's the major that I want to go in for. Also this school is very lose to home and it is very affordable. The location of this university is only twenty minutes away. This would make it very easy for me to go to school and come back home. It will also be easy to have a job because I can pretty much work in Turlock or drive back to Livingston and work here. This school would also be easy to get around because it's a big school but not as big as other schools. Finally this school would be good for me because I will probably see students that I already know which will make it easy too.
