madoka magica is a perfect analogy of for-profit colleges

Dear god I went to the Ai in Boston for two semesters and the shit I experienced would have turned me into a witch had Kyubei had his hand in my enrollment. From being singled out and mistreated by my drawing teachers to not being able to keep up with the ridiculous workload... Yeah, so glad I escaped before Kyubei somehow managed to show up...

Haha, I remember senior year of high school touring the Ai in Dallas...

Me: "So what kind of SAT scores do I need to get in to this place?"
Advisor: "Oh! You don't even have to take the SATs."
Me: "Uh, then how do you know what academic level I'm at?"
Advisor: "Well, what were your TAKS (Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills) scores?"
Me: "I was commended on all four tests."
Advisor: "Oh, that's great! We can get you class credit for those!"
Me: "That's... nice. I'll get back to you on that..."

I got the hell out and never looked back. Then I couldn't get the damn place to stop calling/emailing/sending me crap for a good 18 months (while I was already enrolled in a state university). I'm really glad I never fell for that place.

Apart from the whole financial clusterfuck by their owners, I never got the whole anti-AI thing (but I don't use financial aid or anything, so I'm in no position to tell). Maybe people confuse it with a fine-arts school?

essentially it's just a very crummy chain of schools, nobody likes a rip-off

What I'm asking is how exactly it's crummy; My experience there so far (about three years) has been pretty worth it.

in my case a vast majority of the instructors in my major had little to no real world advice to offer, I essentially spent the first few months learning the interfaces of programs and the next 3 years was basically practice with very little application

I am not sure if I would expect anything more from any other college (except for them having no visitors/guests from my industry whatsoever in the 4 years I attended), but I don't see any reason why I paid the extra $80,000 premium when they had nothing better to offer compared to a community college or university. Having a few more rooms full of computers does not match that extra cost.

Yeeeeah...Art Institute is viscous and tends to only want your money. I was going to a community college outside of Portland Oregon before I transferred to the school I am going to now, and there were a LOT of people in the art program who had dropped Art Institute of Portland. Pretty much all of them said they were getting a better education for WAY cheaper at our community college lol.

The people who try and get the high schoolers to come to AI were freaking persistent too, they finally started leaving me alone about like...a year ago when I graduated 8I;
