Complaint Review: International Academy of Design and Technology - Tampa Florida
International Academy of Design and Technology IADT, IADT Tampa Scammed me out of $100k with no real credentials Tampa, Florida
*Consumer Suggestion: class action
I attended this school for Marketing & Design and minor in Digital Photography. I originally wanted to go to school for just the photography but the academic advisor convinced me that I would make much more money with the marketing degree. They promised that most students made over $80k within 4 years. I should have known better when they were promising low rates on student loans and easy pay back terms that it was too good to be true but I didn't. I now have a job where I make less than $35k a year, 3 years into my job and I cannot afford to pay back my student loans that cost more than half of my take home pay in a month!! After graduating they closed down the marketing program! Try to look professional with a resume of a school under such scrutiny and having a degree program shut down. Its sad that Sallie Mae can charge 11% interest rates on a student loan when I was just trying to get an education. It is also sad that this school takes so much money from students and gives false promises. I will never be able to live a normal life because I will be paying back student loans till I'm 70! Please don't anyone make the same mistake and go to this school save your time, money and your future.
And if anyone can offer me advice or help I would greatly appreciate it.
