@no sir - i dunno what yr experience was...........but with NOVA, it's not the same. Lotsa teachers from local universities moonlight at the NOVA campuses for extra dough and more likely than not, the teacher you have is also teaching the same course at GMU, American, Catholic, etc.
p.s. yr logic is faulty. you can ace high school and still be a fucking moron. And there are DEFINATELY ppl out there who sucked gradewise in high school who could maybe teach us a thing or two LoLz
