i live in las vegas and attend school out here. ive been thinking about going to a college out there in portland area. man it is a true 4 semester program out there. in vegas at csn, unlv, and nsc it seems tougher. for an associate degree it takes a minimum of 7 semester to grad with a asscoaites if done correctly.plus we need a couple more classes then you guys do! i like how everything it compacted into 4 semester in maine for an associates.
