    I can list so many things that aren't being spent on anything remotely useful. It always makes me wonder why I go here due to these factors: -Not reliable transportation shuttles -Food is only available at certain times -Events happen without any notifying of them -Dorms coud have more useful components -The wifi is totally unreliable -Some classes are a joke -Tests in classes are on petty information -Some people here are full of themselves -University only focuses on theatre/dance majors -Security officers are pointless (anyone can get in) -Gym machines aren't up to date -Maintenance is slow -Mailroom can't get packages in the right mailbox -Okay, hopefully you get my point...

    This varies on what program you are studying. The school of Communications may not be glamorous but the connections are SO valuable. I have attended for two years and already completed a class assignment with WESA, the NPR station in Pittsburgh. You can't beat the networking.

    Point park is an excellent university and has a reputable track record. The fact that it surrounds an array of fortune 500 companies gives the students a competitive edge concerning employment and employment connections.

    The tuition here is high! I've heard that the financial aid for non-copa students is a lot more, but for those in the performing arts its quite high.

    The Conservatory has HUGE scholarships available, ask for them, beg for them and you will be rewarded. If you are not getting scholarships it may not be, in my opinion, worth the hefty price tag.
