Question
早在五月份,根Super BrilliantAgriculture/Horticulture
早在五月份,根據薪資上市網站Payscale.com,我寫了一篇關於25個提供最佳30年投資回報率(ROI)的大學。我注意到Payscale的ROI列表與?福布斯?年度最佳學院名單相對照。福布斯使用的方法包括十幾項測量,從學生評估到保留率到學生負債水平。 ?福布斯?列表是一個很好的工具,用於決定你的學生應該去上學的地方。

但只有15%的?福布斯?排名來自於Payscale報告的校友報酬。鑑於經濟困難,我認為一些潛在學生及其家屬主要關注學生賺錢的金額,相比之下,一個家庭必須支付學位的金額,特別是現在許多私人的四年制標籤學院超過20萬美元。

自從我寫了這個故事之後,它讓我覺得,最糟糕的投資回報率大學的列表也將是有啟發性的。據Payscale說,事實證明,有高等院校,30年的淨投資回報率可能是一個很大的負數。換句話說,儘管勞工部的統計數字顯示,大學畢業生的收入比沒有獲得高等學位的學生更多,可以去一所學位不支付的學校。

一個例子是Payscale在1,511年名單上最差的學校:匹茲堡藝術學院。也許這並不奇怪,藝術學校位於名單的底部。這不是一個傳統上很好的職業,除非你是罕見的達米安?赫斯特(Jeffien Hirst)或傑夫?昆斯(Jeff Koons),他們脫身而出。根據Payscale,藝術學院的四年制學位費用為155,200美元。 30年前,支付學費的學生的投資回報將為228,000美元。

怎麼可能? Payscale的主要經濟學家凱蒂?巴達羅解釋說,該網站的方法論假定,上大學的人來自高中階段的前四分之一。這個小組可能會直接從高中畢業,從而賺取四到六年的錢,而不是支付學費和費用。然後,Payscale從30年前開始,落後於1983年,1984年,1985年等畢業的藝術學院校友。它需要這些畢業生現在獲得的薪水中位數,並加上數字才能獲得今天的美元30年的投資回報率。然後,根據這些數字,考慮到可能的工資通貨膨脹,它將提前30年。減去藝術學院獲得學位四至六年的成本,並顯示出實質的負數。

我打電話給藝術學院作出回應,並收到了發言人納塔利婭?德雷維尼(Natalia Derevyanny)的電子郵件,說Payscale的數字是誤導的,因為學校的1,900名學生中有一半畢業於?副學士?或?文憑?課程,只有18個月或更少,在Payscale的計數中得到計數。顯然,這些學生的成本較低,而且比那些獲得學士學位的學生更快進入勞動力市場。

Bardaro認為Payscale的數據是可靠的。人們使用這個網站來了解一個潛在的新工作和/或是否在當前職位上獲得公平的工資。為了交換數據,用戶填寫問卷調查表,提供他們正在做什麼的信息。該網站已經累積了大約4000萬用戶提交的個人資料的豐富數據集。 Bardaro說,Payscale依靠數以百計的小型學校的數據點和數以千計的大型學校。

幾個重要的注意事項:如果一個明礬去研究生院,包括商業或法學院,他們不會被計算,因為不可能知道研究生學位如何影響了他們的賺錢能力。所以Payscale缺少許多高收入的校友。它考慮了在四,五,六年內在每個學校完成學士學位的學生人數,並相應地重視成本。而且假設學生沒有提供援助,沒有幫助,因此在許多學校,大多數學生得到援助,這也使得結果不景氣。

對於公立學校,Payscale進行了兩次單獨的計算,一個用於州內學費,另一個用於州外學習。這就是為什麼像緬因州大學的州立學校,有一千四百五十名學生,在?最差的?榜單上出現兩次。為期四年的學位支付122,100美元的外部投資者的投資回報率為負167,000美元。由於學士學位支付79,330美元,投資回報率為負124,000美元。為什麼這個特別緬因州的學校做得這麼差? Payscale推測,這是因為它產生了很多老師,他們傾向於擁有小額的工資。大學的回應:Payscale沒有計算許多?非傳統?的學生,他們在獲得學位的同時全職或兼職,而且以比Payscale計算的成本低得多的生活在校外。 Payscale也沒有cou

Question
I want to preface this review with theSuper BrilliantOther
I want to preface this review with the following: I intend to write a non-bias review by putting my negative experience in perspective. I also want to note that I am not writing this to take out any anger or frustration, but rather inform people looking at the school of the dangers when choosing Dean College. I hope that this review is insightful and helpful. At the time of writing the review, I have already begun the transfer process to attend another school(s). Also, at the time of writing the review and throughout my first year I am taking theatre at Dean; (BA) no (BFA's) are offered.

NEGATIVES: Dean is a place full of illusions. From their semi-professional video packages that create a sense of professionalism and quality that doesn't exist to the selectively good food only when prospective students visit, Dean is full of proUniversity propaganda and lies.

The campus is something like no other. The school puts more money into landscaping than they spend on food for the students. A week before mothers day in 2016, a team of more than fifty landscapers invaded the Dean College campus. In the back of their trucks sat hundreds of mums, palm plants, hostas, and decorative cabbages. They were also planting news trees and reseeding, aerating, and fertilizing the lawn. Great, they care about their campus and how it looks, however; they clearly invest too much into their brand image rather than actually creating a nice brand. They put too much money into aesthetics and image, rather than their students and funding for classes or other programs. The landscaping was completed for the following week when there was a "Discover Dean Day" planned. This is when prospective students tour the school. The food also shows this same pattern. On important days when outsiders are expected, the quality and variety of food will be increased greatly! On a side note, the Dean wears the student's tuition; you will see the dean sporting many real fur coats in the winter seasons.

The student body consists of the most immature people I have ever met. Aside from a handful of individuals, the students attending Dean are childish, immature, and juvenile. Did I mention sensitive? No! I didn't, but they are. Paired with a campus boasting a student body size of a whopping 1,200 students the gossip and drama are out of control. Students believe that it is okay to threaten other students, create fights from hearsay, and behave like baboons. Now, that seems pretty generic and not specific at all, however; maybe cramming 1,200 people into a campus the size of a half square mile can shed some light on the problem. No, because there are campuses that are even smaller and have a larger student body by ten times and are tame and friendly. Honestly, I have never personally experienced gossip like I have at Dean in my life. My high school had less drama and gossip than Dean Coll... high school, I should say. It seems as if everyone has digressed into a more primitive state at Dean. Maybe it has more to do with their non-GPA application policy that allows uneducated immature brats into the system. That's correct, no minimum GPA is required to apply to Dean, basically, your high school experience doesn't matter! Here is a direct quote in regards to their application process, "Dean College uses a holistic review process, therefore we do not have a minimum GPA requirement for admission." To explain this quote, I have few words; "holistic review process," whatever that is supposed to mean, I have no idea. Secondly, the school has a Freshman retention rate of 61%. 34% of its student's transfer and 4% dropout (College Factual). Also, on top of poor transfer and dropout rates, Dean boasts a 43% graduation rate of all it's four-year students (College Factual).

Being a theatre major, I want to speak directly to those who are interested in theatre or performing at Dean College in this paragraph. If you are not interested in theatre or the performance realm, you can skip this paragraph. Firstly, the program lacks any production value or standards. Attending their production of "Hair" in early 2016 was the worst theatrical experience I have had yet. Upon entry of the theatre, I noticed a makeshift stage with curtains and mirrors running all along the walls. This was paired with stadium seating (fully collapsible seating). I realized later on, that this is because dance comes first along with sports at this school. The space needs to easily be transformed for dance classes; this is supposed to be their "mainstage" performance space. Secondly, the programs were printed on standard printer paper, not professional at all; this was not a student production either. Moving past all the smaller stuff, and there's a lot of it, the stage is extremely small and has no hallway behind it. Meaning, you have to run behind the cyc during performances and scene changes. There are about three feet between the back wall and the cyc. Having to run behind the cyc is 1, unprofessional and 2, creates giant rippling movement during performances that are highly distracting for audience members. This is truly disturbing as it is a professional no-no in real world theatre, "never touch the cyc". Also, the people in the program think they are truly "hot shit." I have never met people like this before, these people get nowhere in the industry, especially if they are coupled with the basic immaturity that comes along with most of the children that attend Dean. Your first year as an actor, you will take zero (0) acting or performance classes. You will take two classes; theatre history, and tech I. You are also allowed to audition for shows your first two years since this is not a BFA program. I am suspect to believe it will always remain this way. Overall, there are many other affordable acting schools that are better and cheaper. This is a mistake for anyone to go to this school for theatre.

Lastly, above all, the community is riddled with gossip and hearsay. People love to create drama and gossip since there is literally nothing to do on campus. Most kids either drink, smoke, or hang out in the campus center chilling and being bored. Yeah, they party! But, no, the parties are truly pitiful and cringy. Not a part school in the slightest bit.

POSITIVES: Now, a lot of negatives have been mentioned, however; there are some positives. Class sizes are small and are more individualized. However, maybe it is the school district I have come from, but the classes are the easiest thing I have ever experienced. I can write a paper two days before it is due and receive a 93%. Not the smartest idea, however; the workload may seem overwhelming to some, but it is truly easy busy work.

They have great accommodations for kids with special needs because of their arch program. I am not apart of it, so I cannot speak much for it. However, I know that it helps the high percentage of special needs kids that attend this school.

Lastly, as juniors or seniors you are allowed to apply for housing in the "condos", these are apartment style flats that were recently constructed a little off campus. Hey, if you can make it through two years or gross living in small cinderblock rooms that are outdated, go for it! the condos are calling your name!

SUMMARY: Do not think of Dean college unless you need to boost your GPA to transfer, better yet, save your money and use a local community college to boost GPA. It is full of smoke, mirrors, and politicized administration.TLDR: Dean has too many negatives to spend around $50k a year on, do not attend unless you need a GPA booster. Even then, that's primarily what community college is for now. The environment is toxic and the campus is a huge magic act. All Dean is are smoke, mirrors, and the pretty assistant that draws your focus from what's really going on.
