"i have to print it out anyways and since I'm paying for advisement
I feel printouts should be given. It's more efficient
to have hard copy to make notes and look at while enrolling"
"It's always easy to access an email rather than keeping
up with a hard copy. Good choice!"
"...I do not have to worry about losing the papers or
having to keep up with them in a binder. It is really great and
nice that it is done online."
"Paper gets lost easily, this is always accessible."
"I prefer digital copies of any paperwork because then I'm
able to save it and have access to it at any time. As opposed
to a hard copy that may get lost or damaged. Additionally,
I am all about saving paper when we can."
