Review Milwaukee Area Technical College
I love MATC. They have the best Criminal Justice Law Enforcement program. It is very affordable! The oak creek campus offers a shooting range, and has a demo house. We use the demo house for scenarios in multiple classes. The shooting range is set up for students that are admitted into the intramural pistol program. They also offer an academy at the oak creek campus. The academy is about $6,000. As of right now financial aide doesn't cover this. I'm hoping it will reconsider eventually because its hard for students to pay out of pocket for all the expenses.
Going for the paralegal program so far has been a great experience. The teachers have excellent knowledge because they have all been lawyers themselves. My paralegal 101 teacher would often send out emails to his students of opening jobs for paralegals in companies and law firms. We visited the Milwaukee County Courts, sat in on a couple hearings and a sentencing. Along with that we met Wisconsin's first African American Federal Court Judge and Milwaukee's first woman Federal Court Judge. The work load so far has been pretty normal, I normally spend between an hour and two hour doing my readings and homework per class.
This is an okay school, small classrooms but this is also an advantage for students to talk one on one to teachers. These teachers understand we have a life outside of the classroom, while still fitting everything in the short 4 months. I didn't like how I bought books for my classes and only used them once. I would recommend not to buy books right away and wait until your first day to see if you really need them. This school is diverse.
