"Fight for your life, brawls every night, false accusations of rape and cheating all what you get here. If your white your voice dont matter you will see favoritism only towards females. If your male keep looking I was at every hospital in the state defending myself because as a white male I was attacked almost daily. Underage drinking runs wild and whatever you say they will not listen to you."

  • Degree: Physical Therapy
"I am currently enrolled in the 3+3 physical therapy program at American International college. I am about to enter the graduate phase of my program. It has been challenging but very helpful and informative. I have learned so much in the three years that I have been here and can not wait to learn everything about physical therapy in the next three years. The campus is mostly safe although we are located in a bad area. Financial aid is mildly useful. They're not exactly helpful to students who "don't meet the requirements assessed by FAFSA" such as myself so I am often left to find aid elsewhere and to my own device. Parking is also interesting as a commuter and campus police is not very understanding about the limited number of parking spaces allotted for commuters. But the amazing program I am currently enrolled in makes it all worth while. I am very content with the degree I am pursuing and would strongly encourage other students to highly consider American International College for any health science degree, but especially a degree in Physical Therapy."

"The AOTA accredited program at AIC will prepare you for a career as an OT. The most beneficial aspects are the fieldwork opportunities made available in all courses. The schools biggest obstacle is its location as there are many shootings and robberies in close proximity to the school. Despite the $177,000 to earn this degree I know a life full of helping others will be well worth the price."

"If you are a military veteran, especially a minority male, then there will be certain professors that will not like you and find ways to fail you. I would NOT recommend this school, especially to any military veteran that is a male. Being a male student in a program that is predominantly made up of women one should be prepared to see favoritism. In other words, if your not a female you will be ignored and not be treated equally and, even worse, if you are a military veteran that is a minority your thoughts/opinion does not matter to them."

"I enjoyed my time at American International College. Professors there were approachable and intelligent. My classes were small, so I felt like my opinions and thoughts could be heard. I would recommend AIC to anyone who wants a quality education."

"While I enjoy the program and the professors, the buildings are old and out of date. They need to put some money in to revamping their campus and making it more of a high tech center for learning."

"American International College is a home, community and family for all the students. The small community is very nice because you have so many students and faculty that are willing to be each and every students cheerleader. The class sizes are small and individualized. Professors put the students needs first before and are always willing to help out any student who needs help. The health science classes and professors are superb. There is a lot of community involvement and clubs to join. Opportunities are endless while attending the school."

"One major con is that AIC is in an extremely dangerous area. I was warned by professors from day one to not go outside at night by myself. This made me and my roommates extremely fearful. Pro is that the professors have the same attitude that we are there to learn and give us all the tools to succeed in the classroom and obtain knowledge."

"This is a small college which allows for smaller class sizes and greater opportunity for individualized attention and assistance from professors. The majority of the professors are of high quality and do not hesitate above and beyond for their students. The amount of coursework is not too excessive but is also not very challenging. Tuition and fees are at the higher. There is little academic and career advising from the program advisor so be prepared to do your own research and legwork into internship sites, course scheduling, and state licensure requirements. Overall you get out of the program what you put into it."
