I applied to Brown College for the Visual Communications degree. First, the admissions rep I visited with didn't know the current status of the % of people graduating with the major who got jobs after school. We went to the other building to look at the classrooms to find all of the classrooms were locked so we could only walk around the hallways (and the there were no windows so I couldn't seen in at all). You'd think to plan ahead a little more with a prospective student.
Got back to his room and we were talking a little more and he was incredible pushy about putting in an application and setting up an financial aid meeting. I wanted to take some more time to think (and was touring another school in a few days) and asked about applying online. Turns out you can but it has to be finished with an admissions rep (which I thought was weird). He assured me if I applied that day and paid the application fee if I changed my mind in 5 business days my application fee would be returned no problems.
Well, after touring the other school I liked that one much better, and had a much better feeling at the school. So, I emailed the admissions rep at Brown and said I was going elsewhere and would like my application fee back like he said I could. Of course he had to call me and asked why I was going elsewhere, but then said he had sent my refund to student accounts.
It's a month later and I still do not have my refund, and even got a statement from Brown College showing I paid the application fee which to me seems to mean I'm still considered a 'student'. I've emailed my admissions rep a few times and don't get a reply, and even called there and he didn't remember me at all and said he forwarded my email to student accounts, and when I called student accounts the voice mail said he was out of the office for a week.
Overall, not happy at all with the service I received, I feel I was pushed into applying (and I shouldn't have, that was my fault) and now have to keep calling and emailing to get my refund.
Plus, I found out Brown College is only Nationally Accredited while most major colleges (like U of M, Augsburg, etc) are Regionally Accredited and usually Regionally Accredited colleges do not accept Nationally Accredited credits. That is something to think about when considering colleges.
