Postby justwondering123 » Tue May 31, 2011 6:58 pm

you can try to evaluate your transcripts through them just to see how they do it. I cost $190 (course-by-course evaluation), they also have some other options on their website. I did it when I was trying to transfer some credits from my school overseas to US school.

I don't think so... Otherwise everybody would try to challenge their rankings.. you just need to hope you get the ranking you deserve. I was happy with mine.
