According to a proposed class action lawsuit, the LA Film School and LA Recording School only received accreditation by inflating their job placement rates: They bribed students with Target and Best Buy gift cards into signing self-employment forms and misrepresenting their sales clerk jobs at Apple and Guitar Center as “creative positions,” to fool ACCET

The schools also may have shortchanged them out on the promised 900 instruction hours and employment opportunities in general. Albeit, anyone who thinks they can pop in there with a $18K-$23K check and expect to strut out a world-renowned cinema genius — or even a part time production assistant’s assistant — is kidding themselves. Times is tough[er], kids.
