I’m the kind of person that has everything planned out (or tries to) so when it came to applying for internships, I was meticulous.

Could you perform and interact like your vision-unimpaired classmates?

Sometimes transferring can be tricky. If you attend the same four-year university from the get-go, you can pretty much follow a checklist of all the classes you need to earn your degree. If you transfer from a two-year school to a four-year school or from a public school to a private school, however, what happens then? [...]
