It's too much money.Super BrilliantHistory/Histories (art history/etc.)
It's too much money. I pay almost full price,while it seems like everyone else pays nothing. If you are from Springfield, you go for free, pretty much. They got rid of my major (education) after I completed two year's worth of credits. They told me I could stay an extra two years and get my masters...for an extra $60,000. I am going to be about $100,000 in debt, and I won't even have a certificate in the field that I wanted.

Most of the people only care about parties and having sex with anyone they come in contact with.However, I have met some great people (most from an off campus job) in Springfield. My professors are great. Unfortunately, I feel like they have to dumb down the work because students refuse to read. The campus life could be great. There are many events around, but few people go, which causes them to appear fewer times during the year. The only campus events people seem to care about are ones that are until 3am and will let you get drunk and hook up.

This is a horrible place to live and study at! Horrible broke, facilities are not more than a homless shelter.

Question
This school's name makes it sound like anBrightBiology
This school's name makes it sound like an online diploma mill. Yet it's the only diploma mill that makes you pay $37,000 per year in the middle of a non-stop crime wave to get the diploma.

AIC has been known for decades as "Almost In College" and for good reason. But don't take my word for it. Spend any Friday night there during warm weather. Remember The Club? Buy one to keep your car from being stolen by the roaming ghetto gangs.Don't get me wrong. Springfield has some beautiful campuses (WNEC, STCC, and Springfield College are gorgeous and safe). It just so happens that the AIC campus is located in a pie-shaped slice of land surrounded by what I call New Detroit.
