Bellevue College Reviews
Communication is awful. Prepare to clear your schedule entirely for two years. Classes are at different times every day, every week. They give you your clinical schedules at the last minute, and have a particular knack for placing everyone at the hospitals furthest from their homes. Nursing school is time consuming, but this one makes it unnecessarily complicated for everyone. Some of the instructors were awful to put it mildly, including clinical ones that were downright hostile to students.
I graduated from Bellevue College with an Associates Transfer Degree and I'm very happy with my experience at this school. The instructors are well educated, knowledgeable, and friendly. Also, the curriculum in the course are challenging and relevant to one's future plans.
I have 70 college credits. They told me that only 21 credits would transfer. On their website they say that they will accept all your associate credits and that they have an open transfer policy. They are also partnered with the college I was attending. They completely lied!! They want me to almost start over. They said I had to take 20 something credits of general education all over again!! It's crazy. They only have money on the mind. They are liars. Run. Get a preliminary transfer report first!!
I received an associates in Business DTA. I had no issues transferring my credits to a 4-year university and the things that I learned prepared me for the higher level courses I have taken at the 4-year university. I took all the courses online and they were great. I also got a new job a month after graduation. All in all, it was a great experience. I would recommend Bellevue for anyone who wants to transfer to a 4-year college and major in Accounting.
Awesome College!! I took classes in Information technology. Technology has always been my passion. The use of technology in our everyday life for Business and personal endeavors is amazing. With cloud computing, technology has touched various domains and has a reach beyond international boundaries.
I had a great experience at Bellevue College it is a beautiful campus and the environment and people on campus were very friendly and kind. Never was I disappointed with my professors and programs offered. Starting at Bellevue set me up for success at the four year university I attended that fall.
When I first entered the school, I had the mind set of not obtaining an Associates Degree. I thought I should keep my head down and do my school work. Then, I encountered several people involved throughout the school and not limited to the following programs:Associated Student Government, Multi-Cultural Services, Career Center, and the STEM to Stern Program. The people involved in these programs helped me along the way through my rigorous course load. They worked with me to plan for the future. Allowing me to come to the decision of pursuing a PhD in Mechanical Engineering with a focus on Renewable energy. I would recommend Bellevue College to any student wanting to pursue any degree. They have taught me not only the science related knowledge but have prepared me for my future career pathway. It is a great institution to start a student in the right direction.
Bellevue College was a great school. I am paying for my own school, so I could not afford to go to a four year university right after high school. I am glad I made that choice though, because I got an excellent education for less money than a university. The classes are also small so it isn't as overwhelming. Every professor I have had has been great as well. They are eager to help their students succeed and will meet with you outside of class. I am now at Western Washington University, and I got a 4.0 for my first quarter there.
Overall, Animation Mentor taught me the skills required to be successful in the animation industry. However, due to the saturation of emoployment in the industry the limited skillset is rather useless. The unfortunate part of the entire process was the fact that the co-founder of the school kept on expressing the growth of the industry however, when you look at VFX Studios they are barely surviving thus resulting in less jobs. A good example is Rhythm & Hues which shut down after Life of Pi was created because they did not receive any profit sharing from the success of the movie. Another thing about Animation Mentor is unless you want to stricly film animation I do not recommend it. If you want to focus on video game animation I would recommend iAnimate over Animation Mentor. Due to the limitations of movie focused animation it was extremely frustrating since game animation is quite different in regards to what you need to be good at.
