I am an undergraduate business school major andBrightAccounting
I am an undergraduate business school major and although I like my professors for the most part, the school and university have little support for students seeking a career and their own networks are thin. If I had my choice, I would have gone to another school. I don't find the smaller class size to be that more of an advantage.

Question
Don't bother applying because you'll just be wastingQuite BrightDesign Arts - Industrial Design/Graphic Design/etc
Don't bother applying because you'll just be wasting your money. I had requested minimal special assistance because of some minor special needs and had teachers outright ignore those requests and others who went out of their way to do the exact opposite of the (again very minor) help I requested. I wasn't the only one who had this problem. One teacher refused to allow my friend to bring her service dog to class because the teacher's dog isn't properly socialized and she couldn't be bothered to leave him at home or with someone else during our class time. I also had teachers call me out for falling behind because of them ignoring my special needs requests and docking my grade and when I brought it up with administration they did nothing to help or even repremand the teachers. Don't apply. Save yourself time and money and look elsewhere.

Question
Having gone to this school, I know whatBright
Having gone to this school, I know what modern-day slavery is like. You may think those words are harsh words but let me explain.

Their vice-president, Phyllis Cremer, is the most abusive and controlling person you'll ever meet. There was a student named, George Rivera III, who would humiliate and insult students on a frequent basis, and execs within the school would say "George is not perfect" in his defense and that "nothing is going to change". Students who didn't suck up to them, like myself, would be thrown under the bus for simply standing up for oneself or others by Phyllis Cremer and others.

The reason Phyllis Cremer is worse than the rest of them is because she tries to control students' every move and when she's caught doing this with proof or she's caught lying, she plays the victim and seeks sympathy from others. I should point out that Phyllis is a black woman who tries to seem liberal but is very conservative. She uses her ethnicity and gender as a tool to be treated better NOT EQUAL by mainly white men, because of their "white guilt". Well, I'm not white so I don't have to buy into her disingenuous BS and after I told her off, much like George, she tries to discredit me through lies and laughing at my worth as a human being.

If you don't believe me ask the maintenance workers who were mistreated and the school promptly fired the woman who stuck up for them, and then she sued the school, and then the school "settled out of court". If I was her, I'd continue the lawsuit and get all the money the school has scammed from students, and then give it back to the students because they made a HUGE mistake in applying to this school. We all did.
