Complaint / review text:
I went to Gibbs College and still dont even know if I graduated. I never received my degree diploma and never received an invite to the graduation. I spent $18,000 in loans and grants to go to a school that taught me nothing. I went in as a professional, already in the field. I am a professional photographer having most of my work go to graphic and web designers.
I thought I could corner a good market knowing all aspects of design. Gibbs promised that I would learn that to ehance my career. All I did in 18 months was fight for my education. Very incompentent teachers, curriculum, admissions counselors that lied through thier teeth to get you signed up. I never even was involved in my loan and grant process. The amounts that I have to pay back are abusrd compared to what I learned.
I never had any loans or grants made directly out to me, they went directly to the school. Many students were in hallways and not attending class. When they had to finally get in class to go through finals, the teacher had to start over again for them to learn.
My flash teacher knew nothing about action scripting, only new Adobe Premier and was teaching flash. I dont know the program today. I was in more graphic design classes than web design. I was told I would learn coding and development. I learned very basic HTML. I was put in all sorts of wrong classes always fighting about my schedule.
I wrote a 6 page letter to the president of the school after my program and he was going to let me take classes over. I took one over, could only take them at night due to a part time job and their schedule. Then the classes stopped at night and I was no longer able to retake the classes I learned nothing in.
