Horrible greedy school. They love taking your money and not only giving you no opportunities but giving opportunities to people from out of state. If you drop all your classes then you still have bill its literally crazy. You feel unwelcomed, unprepared, and empty.

Akron has a good pre-physical therapy program. The program included both great hands on and in the classroom learning. I believe that Akron has prepared me to find jobs that are in the field of study but also to continuing my education to obtaining higher learning in the medical field.
