Hello, can you tell me about the ITT Tech campus in Aurora Co ( off of Lilliff )? Going to be moving to Colorado from Cali and interested in the campus. What is the environment like, is the area safe???

The area the building is in is fine, it's basically just a boring middle class area with a big diversity of people. But I would not recommend attending a for-profit "school" like ITT Tech, DeVry, or University of Phoenix under any circumstances.

I went back and forth on raising this issue and decided not to, but now that you have...

I have to agree with vegaspilgrim. While most of my experience with these schools is second hand, very little of it is good. Unless you are using a GI Bill or are independently wealthy, you are looking at a large debt load and I'm sorry to say, little to no advantage over those who went to a "traditional" school.

Additionally, you need to see if the credits will transfer. A good friend of mine went to ITT and is, in his words, "stuck with a worthless degree and credits that won't transfer". Consequently, he is starting over at the local community college instead of finishing at University like he planned.

Things may have changed since his ITT experience, but the for-profit schools have earned a certain reputation for a reason. If you are determined to go this route I would urge you to look locally; I cannot imagine that L.A. doesn't offer comparable schooling. Moving and starting school for a unique experience is one thing, moving and going to a cookie-cutter school is another.

Whatever you choose, good luck to you.
