Cogswell Polytechnical College Reviews
Admittedly the career services have been getting a little better each semester, but as of December 2019 it's still not as comprehensive as some of these other public universities at half the tuition cost. Also, I know several people who were about to graduate but had to stay an extra semester because the program changed during their time there, and they couldn't graduate because they didn't have all the "new" requirements.
Overall it's not too bad of a school if you work hard, don't care about student life, and are able to fight through the bs that the administration will throw.
