I feel the school accepts students no one else wants, because we're all about making money. We do not have our accreditation, and the students are caught off guard when asked if we're accredited. I would not reccomend anyone to this school.

If you are a current or former student of this school, please help out prospective students by sharing your experience with the school. We also welcome faculty members and staff members to leave a review and answer students questions.
