Many Students have been dismissed just shy of graduating. Run! It's the worst school ever. I was Terminated from Alliant. I also know of other students that have sued and won. I know of an attorney who is seeking AIU student\'s past and present. you can write to suealliant at gmail . This is great for all students that have been used for money.

I'm a graduate from Marshal Goldsmith School of Management at Alliant University and felt the classes really prepared me in entering the field of Organizational Psychology. Not sure about the other divisions at Alliant University but Marshal Goldsmith School of Management is generally well regarded in CA among employers ( had teachers, many colleagues, and managers graduate from there). The teachers at Alliant were professional and often had many years experience in the fields of management consulting, leadership development, project management and the curriculum was thorough. Overall the degree has helped me advance my career and land a job at a top-tier consulting firm as a IT project manager.

I know a guy that still currently uses and abuses drugs that goes to Alliant International University in Irvine and he is in the PsyD in Marital and Family Therapy program. He works as a therapist providing therapy to drug addicts at the Jail in Orange County, CA. I’m concerned that he can be harming his already sick clients because he is still using and abusing drugs. He is still using LSD and Mescaline along with other drugs on a weekly to bi-weekly basis at weekend parties and at his home. He is supposed to be a recovered Meth Addict, but I don’t really know for certain. Isn’t it Alliant International University’s responsibility to keep track of dangerous therapists like him? It looks like I’m going to have to write a letter to whomever overseas therapists and psychologists to see if there is anything they can do to stop this person from harming his clients with his unethical drug addicted behaviors.

I also know another person that applied to Alliant International University and she is also a drug and alcohol recovering addict, and she said that they admitted her to their doctoral programs right away. She applied for 2 of their doctoral programs while Alliant International University accepted her right away (almost instantly) even when they knew about her “previous drug and alcohol addiction.” My family, co-workers, and friends had a discussion about Alliant and how they are admitting primarily people from drug and alcohol addiction backgrounds, and that are still addicted to their drugs and alcohol, which makes me question how ethical and moral Alliant is. Alliant International University’s practices are apparently unethical and immoral because how can they admit people that say “they are recovered drug and alcohol addicts” when they aren’t recovered and are still abusing and using drugs and alcohol? I know too much about who and what Alliant International University admits into their programs, and it is appalling to see that they admit alcohol and drug addicts into their program that are still currently using and abusing right behind the Alliant’s back. What is even more devastating is that these therapists are supposed to be “helping” the drug and alcohol addicts to recover when the therapist is not even recovered himself. This is incredibly unethical, disappointing, and saddening.

It doesn’t surprise me that Alliant International University in Irvine (or in whatever city they’re located) admits students that are currently drug and/or alcohol addicted individuals. Alliant is not a good school. If you’re thinking about applying to graduate schools to be a counselor/therapist/psychologist or for anything then you’d benefit more by applying to a better school. My co-workers, family, and friends, and I have discussed this topic at length and have come to the conclusion that it may be difficult, but study and work harder to get A+ in classes that you think the admissions team will care more about. It is also wise to study and take the GRE because many of the graduate schools still require those scores simply as a formality, but don’t factor them into the admissions decision making process. In other words, your GRE scores don’t matter, yet they are still required in the admission decision making process at many universities.

Basically, attending Alliant International University is not advised! Run away from this “school”! Run far away! Save yourself their lack of morality and ethics!

Very great school i would highly recommend. They are courteous and take you through the process. The price is well within reason and the staff is very professional and helpful. I had a great expierence with this school and wanted to take the time to thank them and the behind the wheel instruction was very informative.

Our daughter is 2 3/4 and has been attending Lifetime Montessori since she was 18 months old. We absolutely love this school and our daughter does too. We didnt know much about the Montessori philosophy before we started here, and now we are considering keeping her in Montessori schools throughout her education. They have taught her manners, respect for others, as well as her colors, alphabet, counting, and how to behave at the table. And she was potty trained by 2 1/2! The teachers are loving and nurturing and all AMI certified (not all Montessori schools are the same, make sure you ask if they are qualified) and the director is hands on and knows all the children and is easy to approach with questions or concerns. Most highly recommended!

Well to be honest with you I am closely affiliated with this school, but seeing how people happy are to go there, I am encouraging anybody to try it out. They have a $880 off super-deal right now, by the way :) (see website)

I am a former employee, recently voluntarily resigned. My name is Tavare Stokes and this is no joke. This school is the biggest false you will find in all of San Diego. You will not receive your full amount of hours. 80% of teen students scheduled are not given full driving time and it is imposed that "Observation time" is counted as behind the wheel as I've discussed with the owner on separate occasions. You pay for 6 hours and you're lucky if you get 2 in total. The owner often calls herself "Victoria" and there is not a "Victoria" in any one of her three names, not one. You're child, more likely than not, will be paired with numerous students and will not receive proper instruction based on the fact they will spend most of their time driving from one house to the next; as they will be dropping off and picking up other students. All instructors are scheduled with back to back lessons with no time reserved to properly arrive and drop off on time. You may be mislead by information received and find that you have to pay $100, or more in reinstatement fees. And in most cases when you find you're being ripped off and want to change your schedule for a reasonable situation... you will be charged $50 for each day you do so. There is not a valid training criteria by which the instructors must perform, nor is one enforced. If you have a complaint be prepared to spend countless hours of your time getting absolutely nowhere. There are plenty of complaints ahead of you. The people in the office are taking customer complaints a majority of the day. The school is under a current review with the BBB and has a dark past of which many people have not researched. It is definitely linked to APlus driving school, which is a terrible business no longer accredited by the BBB. Do not be fooled by the nice comments you see on this page as they are most likely a result of the school grounding for their actions. Someone by the name Amina Larson is in charge of customer service and has been posting nice things to back the school up. She probably contains various accounts by which she can rate the school highly. This is not a place of business... this is, however, a scam. No intelligent person should seek business here, or you will get what you payed for. The owner may be smart, but she usually believes that people are nimble and will try to exploit you as much as she can.

Former WWDS employee,

I am a graduate of PMTS San Diego and it changed my life! After not knowing what to do with my life (I got a degree in business) I came across PMTS. The atmosphere is Absolutly inviting and Loving. Not only did I learn how to become an amazing stylist but I learned how to love myself and the world around me. We had fun-raisers for charities like Food For Africa, Leezas place, Cancer Schmancer, and we raised over $1000 for the Haiti Victims in less than 2 days! The passion that the staff has for the Future Professionals is priceless. I was able to establish a clientel of over 30 guests in which I plan to take with me to my new salon. If you are looking for a career in Cosmetology, then I highly recommend PMTS, they have a very successful pass rate for the Ca. State board too! If you are looking into getting an inexpensive Haircut then go check them out...the building is bursting with energy! Thanks PMTS for everything! Love you! xo

I would have to say that I was a little scared to be trying out a beauty school to get my long and VERY thick hair done. However, I can't believe how amazing it turned out! I arrived to be greeted by a very friendly staff and instantly became less nervous. My stylist was also very professional as well as the teacher in charge. We had a consultation as to what I wanted and it honestly turned out exactly as expected. After we were done with our haircut the student said that the 4 inches that was cut from my hair was to be collected in order to be sent off to a company to help with the oil spill in the Gulf. HOW AWESOME IS THAT. Not only did I get my hair done but I was helping the earth all in the same day. I couldn't say anything better about this place and I definitely recommend it!!!
