I am an International student here doing MS in computer Science and up to now I have no good experience about any thing, studies, faculty's support, Classes, Knowledge , assistance from department.

Nothing makes it clear whether CLU is school for education or business to get rich customers. Specially the department of computer science **** when it comes to teaching.. Just do .ppts, assignments on our own and submit to get almost 4 GPA. Nothing counts while mid term or homeworks or projects. Everybody gets A- or A. I was expecting good practical knowledge, so called

American Education System
, but now I am really regretting on my decision to join this school.

Fees are also very very very high which is worthless. Worst thing is when I came to know that 95% of International Student joined this institute through consultancy/Agencies in their country and many of them got admission with "Graduate assistant ship" and hence there would be no more financial aid for any graduate student in CLU until those students graduate. I was looking for any kind of financial aid from school but every time I got the same answer starting with "Unfortunately" and there is no job for graduate students on-campus. I came with the expectation of getting some good working environment as well as an earning source which could help me in paying my personal expenses but California Lutheran University ruined everything and now I am feeling like I am stuck here. This is ridiculous and this university does not care what so ever problem faced by any international students.

I would never recommend anyone to come here in this school, at least not for the master's in Computer Science program. God bless us all.
