"Here are my thoughts and recommendations for the school. First off, I had a good experience and you should go to wyotech but there were some minor things Id change. First housing, the unit was pretty big but without air conditioning the summer was rough, I had a fan blasting on me but I wish I bought a portable R2D2 AC thing. Also, the bed is stiff, so you need to buy a mattress topper. For the classroom and shop, you get exactly what you put into it. In the shop I’d recommend you have something to work on after your comp book, your car or a friend’s car, there will be down time after your course book is done. For tests, they are hard, you need to study. Getting above a 3.0 GPA here is tough. If you want to work hard and accomplish pretty much anything you want, you can. Most of the instructors are really good, I only had complaints about one. The issue with the one was he was ridiculously power hungry and played favoritism in the class. I reported him to the office with evidence lol I’m not sure if they did anything. I’ve been employed for 3 months now, loving my job so far. I work at a specialized fab shop. I do repairs and fabrication in the field. I took the motorsport welding class. I took welding in high school for 3 years, I did more welding and structural welding here in a month than I did in my whole life. My company also gave me a truck for work. This is an awesome school but I’d recommend, if you can find a place to live off campus, I’d go for it. Have fun!"

"I've always wanted to get an automotive degree, inspired by my Dad who runs his own vintage car mechanics shop. While learning from the family is great, I was seeking a degree that could get me a higher paying salary long term. I saw some bad reviews here and decided to tour the campus. On campus I had positive interactions with the students and chose to listen to them. Everyone really seemed to be happy to be there. My mom and I also had a chance to meet the owner of wyotech, he was in the shop. The campus shops are bigger than I expected. Make the right decision for yourself, go to Laramie if you can. I really don’t think there is a better diesel school than this. I plan on working with a gas or mining company after I graduate, they seem to pay the best. While my upbringing started my love for cars, wyotech really gave me hands on experience and skills for real life work."

"I graduated from Wyotech in January this year. I refered a friend to the school and he saw some reviews on here and I thought I'd share my time here too. The classes went far beyond what I learned in my high school, automotive classes. I was worried that I would be repeating a lot of information, but the hands-on experience really prepared me to find a job after graduation. Living on-campus is a huge advantage. You are able to get more time in the shop and make lots of friends. This school was well worth it for me, but you have to apply yourself and want to be here. I borrowed the money for school and housing and the company i'm working for is helping make back the payments I borrowed for school. If your considering the industry, wyotech is the best choice and is tons of fun. I recommend taking chassis fabrication if you want to weld."

"I took Auotmotive, Chassis Fab and Trim & Upholstry. I was at the school for a 12 months because I took one more class than most people. I loved the school and Laramie and got a job at the career fair at Earthroamer trucks. I like the work. I learned so much at this school and they let me do projects and repairs on my truck while I went there. All these bad reviews are probably from people that had missed too many days in class so they had to repeat a subject. If you like cars and trucks, this schools is amazing."

"When I went to Wyotech there was only the Wyoming school. The reviews I've red lead me to believe the expansion of this school was its downfall. I'm not embarrassed to have gone to this school but I choose it over UTI because Wyotec offered the automotive collision Degree. I earned my associate's degree and have been in the industry as an automotive painter for almost 20 years. My instructors were true techs from the field they were teaching and knew their craft and were brutally honest when telling you you will be qualified to sweep floors and be a helper in your field....that said they also gave advice as not to spout off knolage thinking you know it all. They preached hard work and following the teachings of whom ever you worked for after school...they were right. This degree will not make you a tech as soon as you graduate there is way to much to learn and years of skill involved to simply make a living an what is taught. I spent just under 2 years as a helper before becoming a painter on my own and my degree gave me the leverage to make that push. All said and done I stayed in the automotive painting field because I needed to justify taking out the school loans. As I write this I'm a 39yo tech that makes decent money but has the daily aches and pains of a blue collar job I paid to have a career in. I still love what I do every day but if you are at all thinking about this profession know this...it is hard dirty work that will degrade your body over time BUT it is so very rewarding."

"I was so excited when I started at Wyotech. I did not stay excited long. I had instructors just give answers to the test because they did not want to teach it. Instead of helping when I needed it they stood around making bets on the next time I mess up. The job out come was a lie my resume gets laughed at for having Wyotech on it. I have been working in the medical field just to make ends meet for the horrible loans that I can not even get transcripts for. read your loan contract well they will get you there. I really don't recommend this school anything is better. Every job fair while I was there I had put I Applications and had at least 2 interviews and in all my classes I tried hard was class and shop leader studied. I have a family to support and can not hardly do that because of the loans. I just hope if anyone thinking of this school really looks in to it and ask questions to many people have been royally screwed by this school."
