1 College Senior

Overall Experience: The good experiences have been finding other people who are like me, the housing is amazing, the teachers are great. The first few quarters it is great. But as the joy wares off, you begin to see all the things wrong with this school.

The bad things, they just want your money, none of your credits will transferee to another school, not even the generals, the school is quickly going bankrupt, the student loans are more than they should be, I mean it, the school is actually in trouble with the government for this, they don't accept medical care for the students, and those are the ones I know. Several other students have mentioned more that I can't recall.

Don't go to this school. Run in the other direction. Even if it is the only college in the area that has the major you want, find somewhere else. Save yourself the horrific loans and sub par major.

Overall Experience: While many of the majors require that you take an internship, the odds of you getting hired right out go school is still up in the air. While the school says it has a neat perfect out of school hiring rate, turns out those numbers were tampered with. While the higher ups don't really care what happens to you as long as they get their money, the teachers really care. They do everything they can to prepare the students for work in the industry. They tell you where to look, how to contact them, and what you need to do to get them to hire you.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: While it is nice that you can do your homework at any time before the dead line, the tech support that the school offers is terrible. In my time at this school (2 years) the student portal has been down more than 5 times to be "re-designed." With each new update you have to re-learn the layout and you can't really ask for help as no one knows how it works, not even the tech support.

The classes themselves are nice. They only take up half of the quarter so you can focus on the on campus classes for the other half. They do move faster because of this, but not enough to overload you.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: the class sizes are very small. will sometimes the class will get to 25-30 but they never stayed this way because people dropped the classes or just didn't come

3 College Senior

Online Courses: im not a online person i have to be in front of the teacher in order for things to stick. but with the class i am taking right now math i really don't like it

3 College Senior

Career Services: haven't really gotten to this point yet i am still in school

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: i had some trouble with my transfer credit from AI Chicago it took them a whole year to transfer it but other then that it was good

5 College Senior

Student Body: this school is a rainbow from gay, lesbian, straight, to muslin, Ethiopian, and Hispanic, to def, and wheelchair bound students i have learned so many things from all these people

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: i have been hearing that this is one of the top culinary school in the us

4 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: you pay for what you are getting.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: i love cooking and i love learning under the chefs there. they all have been in the field a long time and have been a lot of real life experiences

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: since i been there some things have changed but overall i love this school the professors and chefs really know what they are talking about. this school is a little expensive but i would recommend it to anyone

4 College Sophomore

Online Courses: For the online courses offered there was excellent peer-to-peer interaction and the registration to begin classes was as easy as an on campus class. The workload was easy to keep up with if you kept track of the deadlines and didn't procrastinate which can be very easy to do sometimes. There was some difficulties for me to learn certain things like different paper formatting that I was never taught in high school like APA formation. The teachers did have quick response time to our assignments.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: My major is Bachelors in Visual Effects and Motion Graphics and one very unique thing about my program is that there is only a small handful of people in this major. We are the smallest of the majors and a class specifically for VEMG is usually only about 15 people per class. The general software classes that I take are larger because other majors can use the same technologies but in various other ways. The workload is very simple to manage and I have loved the curriculum so far.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The professors at AIM are very similar to the students because some of them can be very unique and out there while others are stricter but always there to help you. They have real world experience with the industry which they do incorporate into their lectures and they keep the classes light and fun. For study options they have a study room with computers and they also have scheduled tutors at specific times of the day. They also have wonderful online tutors which is free for the students there and it helps you understand the software and programs you need to learn.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: The process for financial aid was very confusing for me at first, but then we brought in tax information to the school and they helped us set up everything in about an hour and a half and had an estimate the same day of how much it would cost me to attend. I do think that the education I am receiving is worth the cost and that it should all be worth it by the time I graduate. One tip might be to just go and visit the financial aid office and talk with them and see if you are eligible.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: The classes are extremely flexible and even if you attend full time you are still able to have a pert time job and continue paying for college. Some hassles are ways of getting to the school when you don't have a vehicle of your own. Transferring credits to the school was fairly easy, and some of mine came from a community college but successfully transferred.

College Sophomore

Career Services: Have not yet experienced post-grad services yet.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have nit been to many of the Alumni shows, but teachers mention many of the students who have been successful and what they have worked on. They really pressure us to start looking for internships which can really motivate students more. The career center has helped largely so far with part time jobs for myself and hopefully it will help even more for when I am looking for a job based on my major.

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: The Student Body at The Art Institutes International Minnesota is very diverse and ranges from person to person. There are really some very different types of people from different ethnicities and also where each person stands economically.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Class sizes are small and the teachers are amazing. With the size, the teachers can get to know each student and their work personally and find ways to help that student improve. The courses are fun, but sometimes they don't seem like they are aimed towards the industry standards. Classes are long, three hours for the standard animation class, but those three hours are needed. Generally, the teacher lectures for about one, then you get the remaining time to work in class. The classes are project based so finals are not tests, their final projects. Unless you are taking general classes, you don't really need to study, you just have to work on the project.

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: When you come to this school you get a lot of helpful things. For animation, we can get a membership to Autodesk and digital tutors included in our tuition. Autodesk allows you to download needed school programs, like Maya or 3Ds Max, for free. Digital Tutors is the largest online tutorial site I've ever found, and it has thousands of video tutorials to help you learn a new program. Since this is a for-profit institute, the price is going to be way up there, some of it not going back into the school.

2 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Being a smaller school there are not a lot of options for classes. Most quarters they only offer one section of a core class. The only real way to make it work around your schedule is to take a different class and have a flexible boss. Credits don't transfer. Make sure this is the school you want because if you decide to switch to another school, none of your credits will transfer. Not even the generals. If you're going to bail, do it soon or you are going to be paying for the loans from this school while attending another.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: I am an animation major and the classes are hard but fun. The teachers take a vested interest in their studies and want to make sure that the field they are going into is indeed the field that is right for them. They tell jokes and interact with the students in fun and enjoyable ways. All 3 of the animation teachers are nice and they take the time to get to know each of the students. The students are also fun. In this major, everybody is a little funny, and we all know it. Being in a classroom with other people like you really gets the giggles going. Even with the laughter that we have in class, we still take the time to get our work done before the due date. The work load is a lot, but it's fun so you don't notice to much.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: The teachers are great. Registration is a pain in the butt. Practically every quarter the online registration isn't working so you either have to email someone 10 states away to register for you or wait in line to talk to your advisor. Several times when I signed up for a class, I was emailed that the class time changed, forcing me to rebalance my schedule with my bosses and classes. One time I didn't get an email until after I received my schedule, creating major problems as two of the classes were now at the same time. There is a tutors area and you can sigh up for a time slot.
