I enrolled in Aims Community College in November 2012 into the Professional Pilot Program. There was a tremendous lack of information through out my first semester from almost every staff member I dealt with and I was constantly in reaction mode. I cannot and will not list every incident of incompetency. The VA has recently suspended the flight program and helicopter program because of a failure to do paperwork correctly, which would explain why I had the problems getting good information. If I knew what I know know when I enrolled I would have looked for another school. As far as academic subject matter I do not know how knowledgeable the professors are, I did end my semester with straight A's. At the end of summer semester I am transferring to what I hope will be a better choice for communication of requirements.As far as I am concerned school should not put people into reaction mode via a lack of knowledge of the requirements and expectations of a potential career choice. It seemed like they were interested in money without thinking through the aviation courses; what is expected and when its expected of the students.
It is fairly easy to get ahold of financial aid. They offer scholarships that are easy access to get and have it on the school website for you to see and has the deadlines next to the scholarships. Aims is less expensive than other Universities because it is a community college but the price is still quite a lot of money for the eduacation that I am receiving to be honest. I do appreciate the scholarships I have received.
I am a undergraduate nursing student and I understand there are so many students in pursuit of the nursing career as well but the work just to get in to the program is beyond stressful. You aren't even in the program yet and by the time you get there you are basically two years in. It is just based on grades and nothing else. You have to be on top of things constantly and not fall behind if you are truly interested. Some nursing students don't even have the compassion for the career but they pass because of the grades. It is overwhelming but if you are intersted you will stick to your goal.
I like that most of the people are like me. People who are working towards a degree while working or managing a family. They are all very friendly and sharing the same interests while going to schools helps to make me feel welcomed.
they allow you to sign up for classes easily on your own on line
