"I haven't been to school in over 10 years. I didn't know where to start but I new the local university was going to be way more expensive and I wasn't going to be able to continue working full time. My fiance completed her Associates in Veterinary Technology and found a job within 2 months of finishing her last class. She is happy and is the only certified technician at the clinic she works in. I figured well if she could pull it off without having to go to a university why couldn't I? I looked into ITT and liked what I heard they were very upfront from the start. They let me know that they didn't guarantee jobs but they would do everything in their power to help while I was in school as well as after. I am only 1 quarter in and I already have them emailing me offers for internships.I know these are jobs in the sense that I would be getting paid but the fact that most internships usually lead to full time employment and that they were already generating leads was reassuring. So far the instructors are upfront with how their curriculum is going to go and that the work lies on our shoulders like it does in any place of higher education. I read these negative reviews from people who say they went and are just so unhappy with the results. When did you figure it out? After you graduated? Probably not you probably figured it out you were unhappy sometime after you started. Why didn't you drop out? You wouldn't have had to pay for all the loans you took out if you did use them. It sounds like poor students with attitude problems. What's that old saying "Showing up is 80% of it" it's true, if you don't show up you don't get what you need to to get the work done. Maybe you just didn't ask any questions when you went in and now your pissed because you were ignorant.I was told upfront that credit don't transfer to other colleges and that they only transfer to other ITT campuses. I was told that even if I sat down I would still have to pay 5k if I dropped out. This was for a portion of my loan that wasn't covered. I had no problem with that because it was upfront information. In closing I also find it hard to take a review from people that can't even spell correctly or use grammar that could pass as proper. I'm no English professor but at least it looks like I learned to read and write."

"ITT offers nothing to those students who want a real education and something to be proud of when they complete their degree. They will let anyone in as long as they can recieve some kind of financial aid and get the school their money.Most student would never make it in a real college but ITT gives them all degrees they dont deserve. There is no point in working hard at this school they give degrees that are equal to yours to student that just show up. ITT doesnt not value education or its student, they value money. If you have a full time job and do not recieve financial aid ITT will hunt you down, call you a dozen times a day for $2.00.I would never attend this school again in my life. I was a CJ student wanting my BA, well after my first year and a half they did away with the CJ BA program. Not on teacher or faculty member told us this news. Students had to bring the subject up to them and when we did we never got a straight answer.If you are a student looking for a school that will teach you something and get you ready for the future run far far away from this joke of a school. They are nothing but liars who care about money not you not its students."

"Bad quality, after one year I can't found any job. They call just for say that you need to pay the loan, but they don't call for say We have some jobs opportunities for you. I was in three different Itt, Greenville SC., Miami Fl. and St. Petersburg Fl.I not recommend this bad institute"

"I decided to go back to school for a career change after working in my current career for 25 years. My first degree was done at a community college and the difference between the community college and ITT-Tech is the level of focus that ITT-Tech gives you. There will be those out there that complain - those people will always complain saying they didn't get fair treatment. Your education is dependent upon how much you put into it. I felt like ITT-Tech was a good choice for me because I am too old to worry about electives (as I call foo foo classes), making it to a pep rally and all the other social stuff that young kids like.I am serious about my new career and didn't go to school to see what they could do for me. I went to school to see what I could do for myself. ITT-Tech has some awesome student services if you just tap into them and take advantage of the knowledge they offer. I would recommend it if you want to get in and get out and not play around. Good luck!"

"I love it here I want to tell other people in life it is never to late to go back to school. I went back at 31 then drop out after taking 3 classes, i didin't have the support I needed then in 2001.Know I do that is why im successfull in reaching my goal. I'm at the half way point to graduation.I want both of my Parent's there and my mother in law and family members to attended. That will be on of the best days of my life. I'm planning on attending for my bachelor's in March of 2013 for Project Management/Administration9(business)."

"I was attending a community college before ITT-Tech. I found that the underpaid professors and childish students combined for a distracted and simple-minded learning environment.That being said, I started going to ITT-Tech and the curriculum was much harder; and everyone including the professors take school very seriously, unlike what people have been saying on here. It has been challenging; and because I have passion, study hard, and prioritize correctly, I have highest honors. I have job offers from Lockheed Martin, FBI, and several other major organizations. You have to work hard for the education. The professors are not supposed to hold your hand and change your diapers. They are there to guide you through the material and have office hours so you can take advantage of their knowledge.If someone refuses to study outside of school and work hard, then they have no business complaining because a $10 an hour job is the best they are going to get. I have 2 children under 3 years old and I still make school my priority. School does not need to be flexible. We as students, are to hold school as most important. ITT-Tech is a great school and as you can see on these posts, it weeds out the LAZY and immature students, unlike many traditional schools."

"My first class they already signed us into groups and we had a powerpoint due next class. For someone thats working I suggest you try miamidade or a regular college first.These tech schools are extra difficult. I have a life outside of school and a job I didn't have time to call people and hang out and do a project for a class I was in for one day. It was ridiculous. But thats how those 2 year schools are. I suggest you save your wallet and take a little more time and relax and take school on your own time. You can even take 1 or 2 classes a week. Good luck guys :)"

"Please do not go to this school. After attending 7 months to this school I decided to go to my community college after reading all the bad reviews about this school and all the money I would be investing. First of all all the money you will end up paying here is not worth it. You really don't learn anything here.You get A's and B's for just showing up to class and turning in your work which is no big deal. When given a test most of the teachers would give us the questions AND answers to study for it. I didn't find this right because you are not really learning. Some of the classes were the same, like I had two different classes yet everything they taught was the same.Anyway like I said I decided to go to my community college after 7 months. My community college said their credits were not transferable.,p> A week after leaving I received a letter from ITT saying I owe $3,100 which I had to pay in a week(????). I didn't pay much attention thinking it was a mistake. Like 3 weeks later I received a call from a collection agency. I had to pay in full or else. Where would I get that money just like that. They didn't care how I got it, either i payed up or my credit was ruined. They took out $1000 from one of my credit cards which they already had checked and now I am paying the rest in three payment. I am really disappointed in this school and will make sure to tell everyone I know about it. Don't make the mistake of going to this school, go to your community college."

"I have an A.A. in electronics engineering from this school, but yet I do not know the first thing about electronics. What a joke this place is.They teach yo absolutely nothing about electronics. I have an entire tool box full of so-called class projects that we never even did. I thought maybe that the Bachelor program would be more serious and hands on, and maybe they would actually teach something, but I was dead wrong. In my Wirless Networking class, a Bachelors degree class, the instructor would bring a hackey sack to class and we would move all the desks out of the way and actually play hackey sack in class with the instructor.Pleases beleive me when I say that ITT was the biggest mistake that I ever made. If you are thinking about going here, please do your research first. All they are really doing is selling you a very expensive yet worthless degree, and the only kinds of jobs they help you get are around $10 an hour. Who the hell can make a living and support a family on a $10 an hour job? The people at ITT should be ashamed of themselves."

"I'm enrolled at the ITT tech Philadelphia campus. I find it great to be some where the staff is great all the way up to the Director of the facility. I had many doubts in the beginning, but those doubts weren’t about the school it were doubts about me. I felt that if I didn't apply myself to what I was doing and focus on completing it, then I was wasting my own time! After reading so many negative comments about the school I don't feel any different about ITT. Most of the people complaining are the people that are not applying their selves to what they're doing or set to do. As far the money financial aide was available here also a scholarship. I think it depends mostly on the location your school is at; of course there are bad schools around the world you have to pick something that best interest you. Another reason just sitting around the house and not making an attempt to educate your self on something is simply a waste of time!People must realize that nothing is just handed to you, you have to earn it whether it's paying crazy amounts of money to get is dates back to the saying "Scared money, don't make money." The last thing I'm going to add here is for the people looking to start school period. Go into the institution, University or etc. and ask for your self and then be the judge of your own experience, just because someone else writes a bad experience doesn't mean you'll have one."
