But when I looked into the averages I found out that I am actually average, in fact I am just under average for the world.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
