Tell us about your college experience.
The school is a challenging one, and you will be pushed to the limits almost every week. If you want to learn about a particular field, this school is great, but the job will not follow. The career services team is insufferable, and will drive you to the edge of insanity. All they want is a quota (placement in field) average from you, and once that is met (it won't), they will stop contact with you altogether.
Would you get the same degree if you could start over?
I would NEVER choose TFA if I had a chance to start over. The school likes to mention that every school has the same type of career services program that depends on the student, but I know graduates of other schools who we're basically handed jobs before they even graduated (mostly real universities such as Purdue, Ball State, etc.). You will learn everything you need at the school, but you won't get a job from it.
What advice can you offer other students?
Do not choose a trade school, they are awful. Tribeca Flashpoint Academy boasts a 73% placement rate of students, but it requires 70% to even be considered a school, which is pathetic really. On top of all of this, you will be $50,000 in debt, with an 8% interest rate, for a TWO year school, with an associates degree. Don't waste your time, go to a real university.
