I start classes tomorrow as I’m doing online classes. I was excited for this term as it meant I only had one more to go and I was done! Now though I don’t think that will be the case and I have a feeling that I will not be able to graduate until next year because of one class.
Yes I said one class, the class that I am trying to get as an independent study because I didn’t have the money to drive 3 days a week to 2 different campuses. The problem now is that I’m being ignored by the school and treated like I’m worthless. The sad part is this is nothing new, I have been treated like this since I started. The sad part is credits for my degree don’t transfer anywhere so I would have to take all of my design classes over again.
I really want to warn people who may be looking at attending Baker Collage of Michigan that they really are not the best people to work with and they will give you the run around. They offer online classes, but again good luck trying to get anything done. I have written in the past about how I have been treated by this school and I really do hate to do it, but others need to know so that they do not experience these issues.
I applied to another better school 2 years before I applied to baker, the other school helped me so much more and were really looking out for me. I wish I had been able to afford to go, or at least had known how I would be treated at Baker. I may have found a way to pay for that other school.
Share and Enjoy
It looks like I should be able to get that class I need and continue with school. This means I will be done this June and have my degree. I’m excited, even though it still may mean no job for me. At least I have it and can start my own business until I can find other work. I know that sounds weird, but there is a test I want to take and you have to work under a designer who also has taken the test for 2 years before you can take it. It’s the interior design version of the Bar that lawyers take, yes it’s that important.
I am looking forward to picking out fabric and sinks for my projects again. This year I will have interior design classes, unlike last year where I took a bunch of architecture ones. I loved them, but there is a reason I’m not going into Architecture, I hate math! Hopefully it all works out, the dean is waiting to talk to the teacher today and the teacher loves me and is one of my favorites. She also knows I have to have this class, so it should be good.
