Student at This School - Grad Year 2015

Overall Rating

The people running this school don't really seem to care about you. I'd pass on it, if given the chance again. They just want your money and don't seem to care what happens to you afterwards. I'm disgusted with them.


Student at This School - Grad Year 2017

Overall Rating

What I now know, would have been like gold in my hands. Being a new adult student, I had find out costly mistakes as I went along. I believe everyone upon enrollment should have to sit in with a counselor and create an academic plan along with a back-up one. To be watched for progress toward intended goals, pulled in when veering off course. Each person if they don't know, have explained to them why this class and not that one to stay on course. It surely would help to know you are basically wasting classes, if you are/ and that later its going to hurt you one way or another.
