Everyone makes mistakes (and as you said, most of us are here because of those said mistakes) but you have to learn from those mistakes and not continue repeating them to overcome them.
and to the OP, realize that there are a number of options...saba has one model, ross another, sgu, yet another...you need to see which one fits YOUR way of learning...because success at this point is important and the difference of success and failure could simply be having picked a school that doesn't suit the way you learn...
