This school is definitely about profit. Getting class was a nightmare. They weren't very organized almost failed the last quarter because they put me in the wrong class and I couldn't switch out because they rarely have the classes you need available. Even the teacher realize how bad it was, sometimes we would have discussions on how bad it was. They never failed to bill me though.

It's way over priced. After my first year most classes were lab time, meaning you just do your hw for 4hrs while the teacher babysits.

They don't have the best equipment, the print room was it what seemed to once be a janitors room.

They denied me my diploma, the school it's self lent me some money so I could graduate, they never told me I wouldn't get my diploma until I paid them back.

It's not credited. I don't know if they've fixed this yet, but you can't even transfer to another Ai without loosing a chunk of your credits. Not alot of classes transfer into these schools either, probably because they would loose money.

You can't minor in anything.

They made me buy expensive materials I rarely used.

A few teachers actually cared, some where completely rude. I noticed the once who were part timers where the worst.

They spent thousands in fixing the interior of the buildings…who's going to see it if it's a private school???

I was expected to know a lot of things, without every been taught.

Student Housing = Hell, they don't help out at all. Ex. Pigeons Shit all over our front door couldn't use it because the knob was completely covered in crap. It took them almost a month to clean it up.

One thing that I like was the career services. The woman who was assigned to me tried her hardest to find a job, but they work better if you stay in the city after you graduate.

This school is best if you take as many courses elsewhere and just finish there so you can use their job hunters.
