Columbia College Hollywood Reviews

So far, my experience at Columbia College Hollywood has been fantastic, all classes I've taken have been teaching me new things that I can use in a career. The school is very approachable, and since it's so small, the internal community is easy to get into. I do not know yet if my education here will help me get a job in the film industry, but so far, that seems like the logical conclusion to make. The most concerning thing about this school is the massive numbers of negative reviews. So many alumni have posted scathing reviews on Yelp! and other review sites. This makes me very nervous, and I hope that those few reviews are simply the vocal minority. In 2014, Columbia College Hollywood was listed as the #2 Worst School in America, and that is absolutely terrifying. That was four years ago, but it seems like something that I had to find out on my own. My admissions counselor never mentioned it, and that huge oversight seems extremely shady.

The teachers (most) are top notch people who teach good stuff. The admin. is sub par. Currently they are accepting more students then they can handle. Class sizes are bigger. And the resources are “cheap” for a film school. They have and rent high quality equipment. But the computers don’t always handle the programs well and equipment you get is sometimes broken or in poor condition. There’re also some ridiculous rules, such as you can only shoot 2 extra curricular shoots a year which is a bit bogus - we’re a film school, let the students shoot. Overall it’s a good place to learn from and meet good teachers and make connections with other students, just don’t get your hopes up. There’s a reason people don’t graduate here - 1/3 are pissed at the administration and 2/3 get jobs.
It was a great experience, on hands participation with in the tour which I like the most. All teachers and volunteer students gave us presentations that were very clear and broad to better understand what I was getting into.. I also like the fact that school is small which will help much to interact with teachers and other excisting students. I feel that this is going to be an adventure and a challenging experience which will make me more of a strong candidate for future employments with in the filming/production industry. Adding to this last statement, it is a school that interacts with big filming and production companies, that will also help to set me up for innership purposes and gain experience.. And I would apply again if I had to choose all over again.

Best Regards!
