Angry DARTT Students and Support

Is there anyone which has tried to sign up with DARTT or better still is a student with them?

I've been trying to get information from them, but it is unfortunately like drawing blood from a stone.

I keep getting the generic 'love the fact you looked us up and we'll be more than happy to answer any of your questions' messages...but then nobody actually follows up. When I call, I get shoveled around and don't get any real answers to my questions.

This to me is a really bad warning sign.

Any thoughts?

If they're too busy to talk to you or keep messing prospective students around then I would worry this is how they are treating their current students.

I've been at that stage for a while. The 'we'll get back to you' routine is getting old. They haven't tried to leave a message on either of 2 email addresses or either of 2 voice mail systems, so I'm very wary of them by now. Unfortunately, they also look like they're the only ones that offer the kind of program that is flexible enough (on paper) to be taken while meeting my employer's conditions.

Talk about a Catch-22!

At this point, call the Dean (seriously) and whoever you end up speaking to tell them your complaints and that you refuse to even apply to the school anymore.

Watch how fast you get help

And if you are having this much trouble wanting to give your money to the school, just think of the problems you'll face when you are actually there.
