Overall Experience: The only reason i would not choose PIMs again is because I have found other schools that would be a better fit for my personality and budget. PIMs is one of the last professional schools out there, encouraging business professional look everyday. They want the best, however, that's not me. I'm laid back, even as a funeral director. I'm indifferent for sales. PIMs has a fantastic set up, and teachers who have worked the industry and many more jobs. They will prepare you for the national boards because if I could take them and pass anyone can.

Overall Experience: Facebook kind of is taking away the need for alumni events, I can look up all the people who graduated and gained knowledge from and have more 1 on 1 interaction. Once you graduate you are released into the industry. However that makes it easier for the ones who will stay in the industry. Funeral Directors are some of the hardest working people on the planet who don't get very much handed to them, so it makes sense that you do a lot of job searching on your own. Teachers and Admin make it very clear that they you will most likely need to move to have a good career, and for some reason people don't believe them.

Overall Experience: Like most schools you get what you put in. Course work is hard, its not a school you can skate through. However each course offers something different. Also it's a lot of information all at once. It's a small school so you get to know everyone.

3 College Senior

Career Services: Plan on moving to another state for employment. Not a problem for me, I understood that. I will be transferring to Point Park for my Bachelors eventually, however I need to get back to work first.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: Its hard but the field is hard and specialized so it prepares you.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: Professors are great at what they teach, school is small so you know everyone, it's specialized so you don't deal with a lot of extra crap. Study groups tend to happen at the Sharp Edge Bar.

College Senior

Online Courses: PIMS doesn't offer 4 terms online, must go into school.

4 College Senior

Student Body: small school you live and breath all things mortuary

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: as long as you stay on the admin you will be okay.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: specialized field equals a specialized school.

2 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I have no experience with trying to transfer credits in or out of the school, but the class flexibility is non-existent. You take the same courses at the same time as everyone else, there is no flexibility.

Overall Experience: I love my school, and I absolutely love all of the people I've met as well as all I've learned in regards to my field.

4 College Junior

Student Body: We all are there for each other, and really try and help one another to succeed. We like to hold lots of get togethers outside of the classroom as well, just for fun as well as for school.

3 College Junior

Career Services: They try and provide us with updated options in regards to what employers are looking for interns or students.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Compared to most colleges, this school seems rather affordable. I have had no issues with getting financial aid in a timely manner.

3 College Junior

Campus Quality: While our computer lab and library may be lacking, our classrooms are very nice, and the prep room we use for clinicals is amazing. We have lots of resources over there that help us learn as much as we can hands on.

2 College Junior

Campus Resources: There are not many resources at all. There are few computers, and the library is incredibly small and limited.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Everyone who attends this school is going for the same thing, in general, which is mortuary science, funeral directing, and embalming. There are a lot of pros about that though, we get a lot of direction regarding our specific field, and a lot of real life applicable advice here.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: I enjoy all of the classes that I take, and though the workload is insane, it definitely teaches you what you need to know. It weeds out those who are less dedicated, and you're surrounded by those who are as dedicated as you are. There is not a lot of flexibility, however. Your classes are scheduled the same time as everyone else's, and you either make it or you don't.

2 College Junior

Online Courses: Quizzes would often kick you out early, if you could even access them at all.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: The workloads nuts but I knew what I was getting into. People are great there and I enjoy despite the work.

1 College Senior

Campus Resources: They don't give us the wifi password and the computer lab is so out of date. It's running windows xp still

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Haven't had ant big issues and always had someone to help with the minor ones

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Financial aid office is very helpful. Tuition rates aren't ridiculous.

College Senior

Academic Experience: Everyone at the school is there for the same major
