"The faculty only sees you as a waste of their time, and seems to think of all students as below them. On more than one occasion I have seen faculty yelling at and belittling students in the middle of a class.Often time when working on a project the faculty or staff will never reply to you attempts at communicating, and when you cannot complete the project aspect because of their incompetence, they will blame you.Most of your in class time will be spent doing nothing or listening to lecture. All the talk about hands on is simply for show, it never actually happens.All the fancy equipment they are always talking about? Yeah it's over 7 years old. you can go buy a macbook pro and t3i and be better than what they have.Connections the school brings? None. the only time you'll make a connection is by researching the people yourself, and simply use being a student as an excuse to contact said person. Almost all the time they will have never heard of the school."

Hi there,

Thanks for your review. We truly appreciate it. We are sorry to hear you feel that no one cared about you during your time at TFA and that you did not secure connections from the school. Our aim is to provide students with practical training they'll need to take their passion and turn it into a career. This requires a lot of time in the classroom as well as many hours spent outside of class practicing. The Career Services team is always at your disposal as an alumni. If ever we may be able to help facilitate a connection, please reach out: 312.332.0707.
