Complaint / review text:
Though I know there are people out there who have had great outcomes with this college, I wish them all the best. However, I did not have a great outcome.
I graduated in 2011 in the CAD program. I thought I was doing the right thing putting myself through college with no job to better my life considering I've received the short end of the stick in high school, and 2 at home courses I took. During my 18 month program, I was taught architectural AutoCad. I went back 1 year after to get my resume revamped, which the career specialist gladly assisted me with.
HOWEVER at that time I have not found any positions. Why? Everybody is only hiring for Solidworks, Catia, and Sketchup, in mechanical environments and they only want people with experience. Now going back to my first week, I was told that upon graduation, if i needed to come back to use extra resources, I was more than welcome because the school is open to me for life after I graduate.
Well while I was there (Watertown location, where I attended) I asked if I can get a crash course on Solidworks because low and behold, the class is learning Solidworks now that I've graduated. What was I told?"You don't need a crash course. It's easy, free, and you can download it and do it from home." But the file is so huge, it will not fit on my computer.
"Well I can't just fit you randomly in my class." So NOW, I am stuck with a certificate I have not used, a student loan that I've only made 3 payments on because I am now working at BJ's stocking shelves since I was in school (3 years ago.) Total waste of money, time, mileage, and everything.
Beware, it's not what it seems on the commercials. Total actors and I'm sick of seeing the commercial because it's deceiving.
