UOIT is a ripoff

Subject: UOIT is a ripoff
First, don´t trust UOIT. They are employing people to do viral marketing, i.e. go around saying "UOIT is number one for _____." The truth is UOIT hasn´t even had a graduating class yet! How can they claim to be #1? The tactics remind me of DeVry´s when it came to Canada 10yrs ago.

Second, check the ratings and comments for the professors at www.ratemyprofessors.com. They are terrible! Especially for their education program.

Third, UOIT´s infamous laptop program. You *must rent* a laptop from UOIT for a total of $5200 (http://www.dc-uoit.ca/mobile/pdf/value_prop_uoitv3.pdf). Note that the price they quote is $300 less than you actually pay ($5500) because they take into account your income tax rebate! They claim it´s worth it because of the software packages and technical support. The laptop you get can be bought from Target for just over $1000. How many uni students pay for $1500 worth of software - or even need commercial software. Want to keep the laptop after graduation? Another $600 for by then a 5yr old model.

Fourth, you share the Durham college campus. Your residences are next to each other. In Oshawa.
