Describes the student body as: Describes the faculty as:
Date: Feb 14 2011 Major: Art & Design Department (This Major's Salary over time) DO NOT go to the Academy of Art University! The only things that they are concerned about are money and skewing the data to make it seem like their graduates are successful. They do not care if you actually learn anything from them. They overcharge for every aspect of their company. Once they ask alumnis about their out of school work experience, they only use the data that reflects well on their "school" and bury the information of all of the many, many alumni who can not find work, so they can tell new students considering attending their school that something in the 90 percent range of alumnis find work in their chosen field shortly out of school. This is a lie. Let me repeat, this is a lie! And I am one of the students who was actually a very good student, getting good grades, and becoming involved in the school.Find another school who will actually teach you and help you make the transition to a career. One that will not just steal your money and leave you in helpless straights.Going to this school is one of the biggest mistakes of my life. Don't make the same mistake. DO NOT even consider going to the Academy of Art University!!!
