Really based on program as opposed to accessibility. When I was—I started off at community college, because I was still getting independent, you know, working through those daily routine issues, so I didn't go to college for a couple of years— you know my undergrad, general education stuff. So, I decided to go to UIC (University of Illinois, Chicago) to the Jane Addams School of Social Work; because of their program. It was close to home, so I could commute back and forth. The school itself was not real accessible, it wasn't bad. But it's Chicago and, you know, we've all experienced Chicago—Chicago is not the most accessible city. But the school was really good about, you know, changing classes to a different room if I couldn't get to it, because of an elevator issue or whatever. So it was definitely not horrible; it worked out pretty well.
