Esp. interested in Lewis.
Went there and didn't like it, transfered after the first year and went to the University of Dubuque.
1. School is next to the airport, which is cool and nice in the beginning, but gets old when you realize there isn't much around the school.
2. Joliet/Romeoville/Chicagoland is alright. I was from the northside. So I was close to home, but the town isn't a real college town. So you kind of miss out and that part of your college experience.
3. Lewis fleet is pretty old (I went 2004-2005). C-152/172/182RG (circa 1980s) and a PA-44 that seemed to always be busted.
4. Atmosphere is just wierd down there, it seemed that the instructors were more focused on themselves and not the students. The SOP when I was there was stringent as well (no student-instrument flight, had to have an instructor with you to move aircraft into the hangar, etc.).
5. Difficult to become an instructor as a full-time student...meaning they wouldn't hire students as instructors, you had to graduate. Also there were very few alums that were instructors, most came from other colleges.
5. The girls at Lewis are pretty descent, nothing spectacular, but seen/been around worse.
Overall the flight program is sub-par in my opinion. I wouldn't go there again if I had a choice for flight training. I have no idea about Daniel Webster College. The University of Dubuque program was pretty good, but that is just my opinion.
