I'm in the 2nd half of my first term here and it's very fast paced with a lot to cover in a short time frame. There are only 3 semesters, but each semester is broken up into two terms of 8 weeks duration, so each set of classes lasts 8 weeks...you get twice the classes in the same amount of time that way. With 8 weeks for a semester of classes, it's a lot of material to cover. My first term I had 3 classes and was at school from 8 - 12, 5 days a week. I had two wonderful teachers and one horrible teacher (but she is no longer associated with the school, so you don't have to worry about that). I'd have to say I'm pleased with my choice thus far.
