| I went here for 2 1/2 years. I had already been to some colleges and had earned my Associate Degree. I came here thinking that I wanted to earn my bachelors quickly and then go to graduate school. DO NOT GO HERE! DO NOT GO HERE! |
This school is really amazingly crooked and sometimes I sit around and wonder how it even exists. I came in as a transfer and after my first year I knew that It was a complete waste of time. I started taking 8 classes per semester to hurry up and get out of there because I wanted my bachelor's degree (AAU is now regionally accredited) but I didnt want to prolong the foolishness that was going on. You don't learn anything. I was MPT anything I learned at the Academy after taking and successfully passing 100 credit hours there I could have learned by saving that $90 k and getting my own camera and getting out there and shooting and editing my movies. The people here are the worst I experienced at any place I have been and I have been to 5 colleges all over the US. It was half asian kids who are rich kids coming to AAU because they can hang out in the US and cater to them. My first class was a drawing class and the asian kids had 2 people that were assigned to them who just sat with them all class long and made sure they understood everything. Besides that, you have rich kids here who parents can afford to spend 2 thousand per class and then get their kids and apartment in San Francisco and a BMW and pay for their parking. My parents do okay so they helped my through but it was really draining for us. AAU steals every penny they can from you with fees so I never was able to hold onto any money as a student here. It was gone to the school before I could even blink. They never heard of being professional or doing anything professional. Expect refund checks to be late, that is the norm, expect to have 1/2 good teachers and 1/2 that just come in and treat class like its time to hang out and play favorites with students they like. There is really no telling with the teachers. The administration doesnt give a FLYING FUCK about any of the students. You are just a number, if they have to talk to you it usually means they messed up somewhere with your money or class registration and the last thing they want to do is have to actually do their job or do something properly. Since your dealing with super rich asian kids whose Dads own Toshiba or something and then Super rich american kids whose parents threw them a checkbook when they said "Daddy, I wanna study art in San Francisco!!" most of the kids you encounter here are extreme cornucopeia kids and have never had to even think about something so dreadful as wiping their own ass or cleaning up there own mess. This means the majority of the rich student body is totally into themselves and has never thought about anything that didnt further the spoiled existence. I felt like I was just surrounded by narcisstic assholes ALL DAY LONG, ALL DAY LONG EVERY DAY!!. Examples of this would be when I lived in the dormitory and we would have 5 kids watching a movie with the lights off in the tv room, 2 kids come in cut on the lights and start a game of ping pong, no regards for the people watching a movie, not even asking us if we are close to being done, the kids that attend AAU are so spoiled, for them a major crisis is when their Iphone battery has died while they were trying to text. This school for me worked because I saw that they were regionally accredited so for me it was a chance to actually just buy a regionally accredited bachelors degree. I took double load 8 classes a semester. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS SHOW UP TO THE CLASS WITH A PULSE AND HAND MAYBE ONE OR TWO SHITTY FILMS IN AND THEN TALK ABOUT IT LIKE YOU REALLY HAD A VISION AND YOU GET AN A OR B DEPENDING ON HOW MUCH THE TEACHER LIKES YOU. I WITH THE HELP OF MY PARENTS BOUGHT MY DEGREE AND GOT THE FUCK OUT OF THERE IN 2 YRS FLAT. if you are looking for a real school, good social experience, a job after college or not to GET HELD UPSIDE DOWN AND SHOOK TILL EVERY DIME FALLS OUT YOUR POCKETS DONT GO HERE DONT GO HERE DONT GO HERE DONT GO HERE DONT GO HERE DONT GO HERE DONT GO HERE DONT GO HERE DONT GO HERE DONT GO HERE DONT GO HERE PLEASE I AM BEING HONEST WITH YOU TAKE MY ADVICE!! I GRADUATED WITH A 3.184 AND NOW AM IN COMMUNITY COLLEGE SO I CAN TAKE SOME BASIC MATH AND SCIENCE AND GET INTO A GRADUATE PROGRAM IN TAX OR ACCOUNTING. I GOT OUT IN 1 PIECE WHICH IS MORE THAN ALOT OF ACADEMY PPL CAN SAY BUT I STILL WORRY I MAY HAVE HURT MYSELF BY GOING HERE AND WONDER IF THEY WILL LAUGH AT ME WHEN I APPLY TO GRAD SCHOOL.
-IF YOU ARE A RICH KID OR ASIAN KID WITH MONEY TO BURN AND YOU ARE SOMEONE WHO DOESNT NEED A DEGREE BUT JUST WANT TO HAVE THE COLLEGE EXPERIENCE AND BE AROUND YUPPIES THEN THIS SCHOOL MAY BE GOOD FOR YOU-IT WAS IMPOSSIBLE TO GET PUSSY HERE LIKE YOU ARE NOT GETTING LAID UP HERE TO SAVE UR LIFE. I FUCKED ONE ACAD GIRL THE WHOLE 2 1/2 YRS I WAS THERE!
