| As a current Interior Design Student, I highly suggest that you look into other options. The curriculum used to be great, with fantastic specialty teachers. Recently the school has laid off ALL Academic Advisors, and 4 specialty Interior Design teachers. Therefore the current teachers, who are still there are pushed to their limits and do not have the work experience to share with students as the other specialty teachers did. This results in a poorly structured course and the students not learning real life experience.|
Please make sure to look for an Interior Design Program that is CIDA Accredited. This means that the school has be certified to be teaching current and proper material. This Illinois Institute of Art Chicago is currently CIDA Accredited but from the way things are going there is a possibility they could loose it.
Ai Chicago is heading for the worst. It is unclear as to where the tuition money is going. Recently the school has installed 42" tv's all over both campuses. During the same quarter over 20+ instructors were laid off... this is not the kind of place you want to be giving your money to.
Please please please look into other Interior Design Programs...
Look for CIDA Accredited, and professional student chapters such as ASID and IIDA.Please contact me if you would like more advice on good Interior Design Education.

| If your looking to go to this school, RUN. They try so hard to pull you in, promoting all the"good" things about the school. I went here for a year and a half and now am up to my nose in debt with little to show. Most of the students there hardly try and still pass. Thdn thre are those who work their butts off and get the same grade as someone who only turned in 50% of the work. The teachers pick and chose who they want to help. And some teachers just seem to be doing a mundane "day job" to pay off their student loans. Granted, there are a few awesome teachers there too. |
Not one person i know who goes to this school actully likes it. They want your student loans and that is all from you. They offer few scholarships, that are not much. Just please, save your futre and dont select this school. The educatipn is not worth the money at all! Once your in there, few credits transfer elsewhere. I wish i never went here.

| Although there are a few great teachers; the school is basically a joke. Unorganized, rude, and a waste of time and money (ALOT OF IT). The photography teachers seem extra frigid. I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone. |
