International Academy Of Design And Technology / The BIGGEST CON IN HISTORY!!!
I applied at IADT-Orlando maybe a year or so before I got out of high school. When I started that June, all seemed fine. But in Feb. 2006, I had surgery and I spoke with my instructors and let them know what was going on, they said for me to let them know the exact date, so I can turn in my work before and after the surgery. All my instructors stuck to their word, but ones. I failed that class, and at the time I was unaware that you could appeal a grade. So time went on, the next term came and my grandmother passed. I told my instructors they seemed to have sympathy, but they ALL failed me. And after that I went through a little depression phase (as we all do when we loose someone close to us). And with that the following terms weren't the best, but my grades started to improve after that.
But then came financial aid to screw everything up. The FA office was changed up a lot and people had come and gone within the year or so, and I was assigned the advisor who 'allegedly' had the most experience. This lady put me through hell and high water. First she needed my parents' taxes for the FASFA and when I gave it to her, she told me they were the wrong forms. When I changed them I was 'allowed' to resume my classes. The following year (2008) the same lady told me yet again, that the paperwork for my FASFA was wrong. When I brought her a letter from my parents stating that I was no longer a dependent and would not need their information for my FASFA (which is possible to do before you term the legeal age of 23), she denied the letter and told me I still needed their tax info. When I got it to her, she said it was wrong, so I changed it, then she said that was wrong as well. By that time, the deadline for registration is over. I sat that term out and the following term I tried to get back in so I could hurry up and finish. She pulled the same stunt, only this time, she was doing it through another face (if you know what I mean) and this new person told me I had until a certain time to get it to her and I was there at that time. But when I got there, the office was closing and she said she had to check with her boss before she worked overtime and guess who her boss was. I was denied access again. The third time she tried, I was ready, I called the cooperate office and informed them on what was going on. Because I had called her supervisor and the president of the school and nothing was done. When cooperate finished with them, I was allowed back in, but I was on probation.
Now, as I'm near the end with only 3 classes left. They have added and changed classes, which has pushed me from finishing Nov. 2009 to April 2010, but that could be changed now.
I took folio for the second time this past term and was failed. I made all the changes that were suggested and still not good enough. But at the same time I just found out that the department chair (who is supposed to be the one teaching the class) doesn't have her masters degree and not only that, but she can't sew, make patterns or work the computer programs. And yet, my failing came from part of her grading me in the final interviews. Not to mention, that she judges things based off of how she personally feels about the piece or item or person and not the work itself.
Now they're telling me that I have to either write a letter of appeal or get kicked out of school. I just can't wait for this to be over!!!
