The Art Institute of Seattle is a for-profit school. The students take mandatory courses with the same instructors over and over and there is not a diverse flux of opinions or teaching styles therein. The instructors are not necessarily qualified to teach their assigned classes either. It is a militant environment in terms of financial aid, registration policies, and even security policies. Students are treated as if still in high school. This is a corporation; I transferred into another school after 2 years at Ai, a decision that I am entirely happy I made. I would not recommend this school to anyone who honors higher education and who realistically wants to work in the industry they choose to study. The mindset at Ai is based on making a profit, not on bettering the community with qualified graduates.
