I'm about to graduate from AI Atlanta and am glad I found this article. I too lost some teachers very dear to me and also a portfolio advisor - someone whom I depend on to graduate. Our campus is in the process of laying off 62 employees. Along with that is included tech support that keeps the place running. They're tech budget is so miniscule that these guys have to pull rabbits out of hats to just keep things running. There is no way it can survive without them. And there is no way the students will prosper without decent teachers, tools, and equipment. For the tuition I've paid to this school, I could start my own production business with better equipment than they have now. It's utter nonsense saying that this will improve the student life. It's going to make it 100 times worse and drive the school into the ground, all because some dbag banker can make their ridiculous salary (ahem scam?).
I want to urge everyone to write their congressmen or congresswomen about this issue, as it's completely unfair to charge such exorbitant tuition and not provide an equal level of education in return; and one that may have little to no value in the very near future.
I think it's time they reopened that class action suit and give a complete refund to all students adversely affected by this business's failure to adequately provide a high-cost service.
