DO NOT GO HERE!!! This school is completelyOther
DO NOT GO HERE!!! This school is completely unprofessional in every way shape and form! All the people workig there seem like they would rather be some where else. And a lot of people quit without any warning and leave you to figure out everything on your own. I do not feel that I will be able to get a job after having gone to this school! I feel I should have learned a lot more and been held accountable for knowing all the information. I went here for the DMS program and I should have known it would be like that after just the admissions process. I lost count of how many times I called and emailed to try to get information about enrolling. Even my mom tried because I thought maybe they just weren't taking me seriously because I was young. Then when I was finally in, it turns out they had enrolled to many students so I had to wait another 2 months to start. The only reason I even decided to continue was because it was accredited (which its not anymore!). Through out my time there I delt with unprofessional clinical coordinators and program directors. It took them 2 months to find me a clinical site when I was told that they would provide everyone with sites! Due to that I shouldn't have graduated on time but I worked my butt off to make up all the missing hours and managed to finish by my original graduation date. Now it has been almost 2 weeks and I still have not received my transcripts, letter of completion, or diploma, all of which you need to take your state tests. We were supposed to be able to take our state tests as soon as we graduated and I am still not able to apply.

Platt College is supposeArt & Design Department
Platt College is suppose to help past grads with their job hunting... in one whole year I was only sent 1 lead for 1 job listing I had already seen in on Craig's List. No follow ups from Platt service staff, no other leads, no support, no nothing!

Overall the school atmosphere was satisfactory.Quite BrightComputer Science
Overall the school atmosphere was satisfactory. I have no problem with the attitude and intentions of the faculty and staff. The majority of the instructors is qualified, it is the amount of money invested in my education in relation to the curriculum that I am criticizing. There is NO WAY IN THE WORLD this school is worth $50-$60,000 for a degree.One could spend at the very most $10,000 on tutorial software and become more educated and experienced.
