Equine colleges/ trade school.

(Not sure if I put this in the right place, so I apologize in advance, no where else seemed better.)
I was wondering if who all here has gone to an equine college/ trade school?
I myself am planning on Meredith Manor in Vest Virgina in 2012 and was wondering if anyone here has gone there or is planning on going in the future?
If you have gone to an equine school, what did you go for? Would you suggest it to others? How long did you go? Anything else you would like to tell us about your experience...

Not Meredith Manor, but I have looked at going to the University of Findlay in Ohio. And at Albion, but Albion didn't really appeal to me, I'm not sure why. I'm also looked at Michigan State University, but Findlay's the majorly horse focused one, you can actually get a degree in horses.

I've also considered Findlay and Lake Erie.
But unfortunately I've neglected my grades over the past two years and it would be difficult to make up my GPA =/ One thing about Meredith Manor is that it doesn't have a GPA requirement.

I'm not entirely sure yet. I'm thinking about the 72 week Riding Master program. But I still have to decide.
