Major: Video/Media (This Major's Salary over time)
I am transferring from Chapman University after this semester. I came in as a Film Production major at Dodge and really enjoyed the classes I was taking and the opportunities that I had already being about an hour from LA. I was lined up for an internship with a successful music video director who is a Dodge graduate. That was before I realized that Chapman was not the place for me.

I came here for the film school, but outside of Dodge, I am far from impressed with the quality of education at Chapman. The professors are either new and inexperienced or old, whacky, and tenured. I feel like each class became a game of how to get an A with little focus on applying the course material in order to prepare for the future. I wanted to double major with my film production BFA, but the unfocused teachers and even less focused students drove me out. I want to be surrounded by people who are serious about learning, enjoy talking about what they are learning, and understand how important it is for their futures. I'm tired of hearing

Let's hit the pool or the beach
- everything here, as you would expect at an extremely attractive school in Southern California, is based off of image and status. Quintessentially superficial and super cliquey.

Also, good luck finding housing after the first year. Chapman pretty much kicks you off campus. And get ready to be written up because not all, but definitely some RA's, public safety, and especially the local community are out to get all your partiers and dank smokers. And there's been loud construction going on ever since I first got here in August. It seems like Chapman is more concerned about spending tuition money on new buildings to sustain their perfect image than about the future of their students.

responseI think that Chapman is a horrid place too. I could have taken these classes at a junior college or even the local adult school and I've seen JC and high school teachers do a better job than Chapman's faculty.
