Colleges >The Art Institute of Pittsburgh
Don't call AIP-Online. I also would give this school(school used loosely) a negative rating if possible don't give them a chance to start their hard sell telemarketing scam on you! They will harrass you until you enroll and your time (and money) spent there will be useless. They will not give you credit for classes you finish if you want to start a second degree program, they will say you have to take new classes(that you already finished, again) NONE of your credits will transfer to a new REAL college or school. Their Financial Aid dept is set up to get you money that they will take as fast as they can. Their advisors are nothing more than telemarketers! They will assign you to classes that say no pre-requisite and you really need a pre-requisite or prior expierence or you will fail. You will get good grades that mean NOTHING to the industry! Think before you call because they will keep calling to get you to sign up with them even if you are already attending!!! They still call me and say I asked for info, and I have been there for 1 year! They will do anything to get you in and your degree will be useless! Go to a REAL college not owned by EDMC!!!!
THEY PUSH STUDENTS THROUGH THE SYSTEM!. I would gve this school a negative star rating if I could! I graduated from AIP with a 3.6 and a BS in Multimedia. I went because I wanted to learn flash. about 90% of all class time is dedicated to "work shop" time and there is almost NO lecture. The instructors push students through the system, so they don't learn ANYTHING. I have accumulated over 90k in student loans and nobody will hire me because I lack the proper skillset. Furthermore, employers cant believe I was able to get a BS with such little competency . Career services is a joke. The only students they find jobs for are those who came into the school with previous experience. AIP has RUINED my life. Once they push a student through their ridiculous curriculum and get their $$, they drop them like the plague. Thank you, school for profit!
