"The school is a scam. They overcharge for everything. I received financial aid and grants from the government, and they took the entire amount of my grants and loans, plus made my mother take out a parent plus loan to pay for me being there 4 months. They took all that money, which would have been between $27,000 and $30,000 for four months, and that didn't even cover my books. I had to pay all my supplies and books out of pocket. Granted I had housing, but the housing was an apartment I shared with 3 other guys who were paying the same I was in tuition. They were making a killing off of us. I only stayed four months for two reasons. One was because they promised me faithfully they would assist me in finding employment since I came from out of town. They said employers send them jobs all the time... no problem. This was BS. The lady who was supposed to help me kept cancelling my appointments to see her, and when I finally did she her, she said to look online and make a resume.. Ok, I already knew that. I had already applied everywhere. I was starving, eating dry cereal out of the box. She was no help. The second reason I left was the cost. I knew I would never pay them off in my lifetime if I continued paying that much every four months. The lady who recruited me to join the school was all helpful and nice while she was trying to get me in. After that, she hardly said hello when I passed her.... My roommates were typical college roommates I imagine. They ate any food I brought in for myself. They stole stuff from me. They stayed up playing musical instruments and partying many nights a week, and let people come there and stay who also ate my food... The lady who was supposed to oversee the students in the apartments didn't care what they did really. She partied with them. Some of the teachers were ok, but some were just strange. My film teacher was stuck on Nazi films, and that's all we watched or talked about. I don't recommend this school to anyone. You can go some place way cheaper and get the same degree. This place is way too high for what they do. When I left, I couldn't get my transcripts from them to attend another school because they said I owed $60. I asked what I owed it for, and they couldn't really tell me so I asked for a statement showing what I owed that for... They sent me a statement showing different items, but beside each thing it said i owed $0. Then at the bottom of the list it said total amount owed was $60, so I still didn't know what I owed it for, but I had to pay it quickly to get into another school. I wish I had never went to this school. They took so much of my money while I was there from my financial aid, I had to pay most of my senior year out of pocket at a different school, but I graduate in two months from another college, so I struggled, but I made it. No thanks to The Art Institute."
