"DO NOT TAKE THIS COURSE"
This course is unprofessional and not supporter by WashU. It is WashU in name only. It doesn't have the brand that WashU does. This is run by Trilogy Education Services not by WashU and it is barely supporter by WashU. We were kicked out of our classroom... Read More
The other part of this that is terrible is the Career Services. They don't help you with anything. They have students all over the country. They have no knowledge of your local market. They will review your resume online but they won't help you in making any corrections. They feel that is not their job. You are better off hiring a professional for $200.
