The teachers are descent and the education isQuite BrightOther
The teachers are descent and the education is up to par. It is challenging, but if you work hard, you will succeed here. I did fairly well, receiving Magna Cum Laude, and was active i. The university( President of two student organizations). My biggest problems are with the administration and the flight department. The administration is an absolute joke. They put up veils of students mattering and they care, but you would have a better chance of being taken care of at a huge college. For such a small college, you would think you actually mattered. Not so. The flight program is just as bad. The flight training is above standards. HOWEVER, they are infamous for letting you sit while you wait for your flight tests. They mandate you to keep retraining for your tests, which would be fine, baring you didn't wait rediculously long for the exam due to their lack luster administration. When I took my commercial flight test away from ERAU, it was the best decision of my life, even after the flight department told me I would fail and tried to intimidate me to do as they instructed. Overall great school....terrible administration. Go somewhere else.

If you are an AS Major without aQuite BrightOther
If you are an AS Major without a private license and are not dedicated enough to work 5-6 days a week you are bound to fail. However, I came in with my private license (thank god) and did not have to go through the horrific struggle of trying to get through private. Not to mention how incredibly expensive it is to get private at Embry-Riddle, it takes students an average of about 3 semesters. On top of this, waiting for a checkride takes literally a month and a half and the whole process is just beyond stressful. A good portion of the Flight Instructors are only here to get the hours and really dont share the same passion as a lot of students trying there hardest here. Ive heard all the bad stories and how hard people work to get there private and it sounds terrible. My advice: If you are not willing to work hard and/or come in with ur private, take a look in the mirror and think about picking a different school or even a different profession. The graduation rate is only 52%, according to FASFA and the social life could be the worst in the country.

This school says it is all about theAverageOther
This school says it is all about the students but really it isn't at all. It makes it super difficult to pass any student. The graduation rate according to FASFA is 52%. If you are a flight student your stress is through the roof. They take the fun out of flying completely and 50% of the flight instructors don't give 2 shi ts about their students. Meanwhile the airline are continuously begging the school to give them more pilots yet they continuously are making it harder and harder for their pilots to pass. Honestly do not come to this school. It is boring. They hype it up a lot when you come here on tour but it isn't that awesome. A majority of the teachers either are jerks, don't care, or don't know.
