We are investigating whether Academy of Art University lied to prospective students about its programs and the benefits of a degree. We also are investigating whether it paid incentive compensation to its sales people (admissions representatives). If you are a student or former student, or a former employee, we would very much appreciate hearing your story and point of view.

Are there any investigations going on with the I.A.D.T. artschools?
If you're going to sue anyone, sue the Art Institutes. That's a flagrant rip-off, and it's ruining people's financial lives as well.

Even though this is pertaining to AAU (to which I've never attended). I will have to agree with SlowDaddle about the Art Institutes. As a student who attended and quit one of the branches, I must say the amount of debt one can incur for a sub-par education is staggering. Not to say that all are bad necessarily, however, there are questionable ethics.
My two cents.

To follow-up on my earlier post, we now suspect that prior to June 2007, AAU was not in compliance with California's ban on paying incentive compensation to admissions representatives. If so, students who enrolled before June 2007 may be entitled to a refund of a substantial portion of their tuition. If you enrolled in AAU prior to June 2007 or have information about AAU's admission representative compensation during this period, we would like to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org.

@SlowDaddie: Craig McKracken and Genndy Tarkosky went to CalArts. In fact, Tarkosky and McKracken became friends because they MET there. XD
