Don't go here. Please. I could write a novel on why not to go here. It's not just that I didn't feel prepared to get a job after graduating. It's the administration. They don't communicate with or update the students, they just want to get more students at the school and they focus only on advertising. The dean of the school said that their Entrepreneurship program was for students who didn't know what they wanted to do. They switched to for-profit a few years ago and everything went downhill from there. They have almost 50% part-time students who are not allowed to get any financial aid simply because they are part time. It makes no difference if they have to work to pay off school or if Cogswell simply does not provide enough classes because of their small size. This means you could be attending part time because the college does not offer the courses you need, and it will still deny you a scholarship.

They also have a high turnover rate of admissions faculty, but they rarely replace professors. So their teachers are running on a skeleton crew. The game program has 3 professors, and one of them has not worked in the game industry.

Just…save your money and go somewhere else. It doesn't matter which program you're looking at, each one has it's own problems and all of them have to deal with administrative problems.
