Academic Flexibility at Porter & Chester Institute - Branford: Haven't done any transferring of credits. Why would I spend $20,000.00 and THEN go to a real learning institution?

Career Services at Porter & Chester Institute - Branford: Quality of post-grad services at Porter & Chester = ZERO.

Overall Experience at Porter & Chester Institute - Branford: Instructors simply read from sloppy Power Point presentations. Lots of misspellings and poor quality images that transferred poorly when printed out for students. A token effort at best.

Disruptive adult children in class.

Computers infected with viruses or wouldn't boot up. Missing and out dated software. Porter & Chester computer students were not much help, which is kind of funny and tragic at the same time. Difficult to go in and refresh your "skills" like what is advertised as a benefit of attending Porter & Chester when the equipment doesn't work.

Academic Experience at Porter & Chester Institute - Branford: Few job opportunities for graduates with a $20,000.00 debt burden who leave with only entry level skills. Job placement assistance is beyond poor and was the biggest reason for my going to Porter & Chester.

Overall Experience at Porter & Chester Institute - Branford: I wouldn't recommend Porter & Chester unless you want to be surrounded by children re-living their high school days.

The job placement assistance is a joke. The "Job Placement Specialist" types up a generic resume that looks like everyone else's and shows you how to look for a job on the Internet. The school advertises a 95% placement rate for graduates but from the looks of it, most of that are jobs at McDonald's.

Academic Experience at Porter & Chester Institute - Stratford: It is awesome. The class size is small. There are 3 professors that are eager to help and teach. I am the type of person where i need the one on one help from a professor. I have difficulty learning new things from my ADHD and bipolar disorder and get frustrated when i don't comprehend the topic. The professor explains it in different ways so i can understand it. They don't give up on you. They want to see you succeed. In the 3rd and 4th semester internships are offered to qualified students that are career ready. the curriculum and workload are good.

Academic Flexibility at Porter & Chester Institute - Stratford: The schedule was hard at first. It felt like high school. My major schedule is 7:30-12:45. Each field schedules are different. I am used to it now. I love it in fact, it helps me prepare to wake up early for work and to not be late. There is no credits to transfer because i only learn the topics i need to learn for my field of study.

Tuition & Financial Aid at Porter & Chester Institute - Stratford: The financial aid assistance was great. My parents never went to college so they didn't know how the process worked, neither did i. They answered our questions very thorough. Its worth the pay, they teach you soft skills, how to write resumes. They prepare you for the career world.

Student Body at Porter & Chester Institute - Stratford: The people who work and attend this school are friendly and have great soft skills. In most places, not everyone says good morning or hello. People became cold in this generation in the area. Its nice to have a warm environment for once.
