Overall Rating:

I am going to finish here because I have already started. There are some caring professors, but I don't feel like I will leave with the knowledge I should. The time and care spent on our learning is not enough. Staff has too much on their plates and don't seem focused. On top of it all they are closing the school.

I graduated from here and nothing good came out of it. But, I finished my degree and at least have something to show for it and not just the debt. Most of the teachers are not certified to teach and that's why the school can't get a credited and credits aren't transferable to other school not even community colleges be careful if you come here... know what you want.... there are some good professors and I learned a lot and meet some wonderful people

This school is slowly going down the gutter. I only attended the school for a year and have had nothing but bad experiences. The administration staff are way too pushy with trying to get me into the school. When I went and toured the school with my family, they had already prepared the paperwork and enrollment fees before I even agreed to attend. They pestered me every day with phone calls and emails like they were desperately trying to get me to attend. And once I finally gave in, they had also hyped up their so called "student housing" which isn't so great either.Not only did I have a bad experience within my first year, during my first quarter, the school was laying off a good number of their staff. Staff who actually had been helpful to not only myself, but other students as well. The school got rid of the good ones to only have other professors take over the class and teach it poorly.Remember, this school is a for profit. So they only care about your money, NOT your education. And if you're thinking of transferring in or out, good luck. No other university/college credits will be accepted. Nor will these credits transfer out.Also, being charged $120,000 for a 3 year program to learn how to take pictures is ridiculous. And for a degree on how to "draw/animate", I could learn to do all that for free on my own time and learn at my own pace via Internet. Many of the programs here aren't even worth the money, considering that this specific AI only has half of the degrees available unlike the one in California/New York.

I am about to graduate with a Web Design & Interactive Media Bachelor's Degree. I love it here. I have watched those that have dropped out primarily due to an unwillingness to adapt. It isn't a perfect college though.There are things I wish could have changed and Yes, it's expensive, but I have gained more than a degree. I have gained friendships, a budding collective network of fellow designers, and a passion to learn further than the school could provide.There are some amazing instructors here that push you to learn. If they find you don't care about your work, they won't either. They spend their efforts on students that strive to do their best.I will definitely share the good works of AI - Minnesota whereever I can, and I am a proud alum!

I have been going to AI for the past two and a half years and what I have gotten out of it is nothing like what is described by the other reviews.l can't speak for every program, but as far as the culinary program goes I would say that it is excellent. Most of the teachers DO in fact know a great deal and are amazing sources of information. They are also fantastic connections into the industry and several times have been a source of personal and proffesional wisdom, not to mention a great way to get a job around the cities. And that is on top of the culinary knowledge you receive. The biggest downside is the exhorbanent price tag, but I can tell you having AI, a nationally known school, on your resume is better looking than a community college. Overall, you get out of it what you put in it. If you are going to pay this much for schooling, you need use EVERY resource the school has to offer and not just go through the motions. If you do that, it will be worthwhile. I'm giving this a 2 and not a 3 because I believe the program is great, but recently, order to cut costs, the school laid of several professors, some of which had been close to retirement. In the end, it is a for-profit school, and it is unfortunate to say the least, but AI stand by my statement about the culinary professors as fantastic.
