    The A.I.S (audio in particular) caters to a lowest common denominator which are dissalusioned teenagers. This over-priced "school" does'nt reveal the whole truth; it occurs (the truth) approx. 4-5 quarters in. For example:

    The 98% job placement they lure you w/ (in the audio field) includes anything to do w/ audio (i.e, record store, electronics assembly line, etc.)
    One can graduate w/o knowing how to get signal flow through a mixing board ( I witnessed this first hand, some people in my graduating class where clueless)Which, incedently, create another problem: Employers hire the said slackers and realize that they are unable to do anything, thus, they equate the A.I.S w/ these types of people (many places in Seattle refuse to hire A.I.S audio "grads"{I witnessed this 1st hand}).
    Some of the instructors truly are good people although the bulk of them could'nt make it in the "real" world as engineers (some did in the 80's but their archaic ideas are no longer valued).

    Internships: you pay the school to work for free (find your own)
    Studio time: Good luck finding some.
    Job placement: Do it yourself
    Student loans: Good luck paying these off w/ your entry level job.
    Eric Wilson: B.A candidate? 'nuff said
    Annoying people: There's lots here to choose from
    Save money: go to Full Sail or some REPUTABLE school

    Yes I did graduate... way too easy...and yes I am thanks to AIS...
    And yes I'm out 65 grand (cdn) for my "experience"..
