Well to start off, I am 19 years old, work full time (40 hours) at a computer repair and data security sb. I have been working here for 2 years and have gained a lot of experience in the field, so i decided to venture out for a small degree that would increase my pay some. (along with Microsoft certifications of course). Basically, i came across ITT as my best option, because it offered a degree in a more specific area than most other colleges do. To fastforward i ended up choosing itt. I went for my initial signup, and everything was fed to me in a way that made them seem superior, and I would be getting a degree that would carry me for the rest of my life. They promised a lot which was never given to me. For example, teachers who cared and actually gave 2 cents, and also that they would assist with financials/ and being there for me whenever i needed them. Well, i was very impressed with their soon to become (lies) and i signed up right away. Got all the loan information, and was on my way as a future student. Fast forward again- I basically got through the first two quarters of my night classes with ease, and found that the education i was receiving was very low level.( even less then what i already knew). Obviously, no one knows everything so there were some times i actually needed assistance. I tried time and time again with different teachers, and never once got a call back, an email reply, or even a voice mail from any of them. The only times the school ever contacted me was when i missed class or they needed paperwork done. I kept pushing myself through the 3rd quarter which consisted of dc electronics, networking, and college mathematics 2. This is where I had my troubles, because being an electrician is not in my future. I didn't understand a thing...and i wasn't the only one. I made plans with the teacher to meet up multiple times for help on the subject, and every time i stayed after school the teacher was never there. I called, emailed, just like i said before but to no reply. At this point i realized what i had gotten myself into, and lost a lot of my motivation to even go to class. I stopped going in march, and never received a call, email, letter, anything saying i haven't been. What the hell is my 20000 dollars paying for?!?!?!?!? I never received any form of communication from the school because the people who actually are there to help you, always push you to the voice mail and it never gets read.
I did get one thing in the mail, and that was my letter stating i was no longer an enrolled student to itt tech. I called once receiving this letter(may 11, 2011) and have yet to been contacted back about this. To sum this long boring review up, DONT GO TO ITT TECHNICAL INSTITUTE. They do not care about your future and they just want your 450 dollars per credit hour or w/e it is. I am now in 13000 dollar debt and i didnt even get a half years worth of education. WOULD YOU GO HERE? This is all based on my personal experience, and in now way is this what happens to everyone.
