*Consumer Comment: So why did you go????
The only education I got from this school was that they were a total rip-off and to carefully read all the small print. Know what your getting into before you get too far! And the 5 week courses were a joke! For the kind of money that was being spent, I expected better.
The first problem I encountered was the pushing and cajoling to be addmitted into their program. At first I was reluctant and didn't think I really wanted to take online classes. I must have told them NO several times. As an example I explained repeatedly-and to anyone who would listen, which turned out to be no one-that I have never taken algebra before and would have no idea of what to do. But in the end, I agreed and started classes.
Of the instructors that I did have, before I was able to wrench myself free of that nightmare, some of them would work with the students and woud do
what was needed to help the student pass the class. Then there was, for example, the instructor for the algebra class that told me to use the online lab, which was worse than useless. (There was at least one other student that was having trouble with it and felt as I did).
Then, when I tried to get out of the class and the school, lo and behold! the student advisor that was supposed to help me was unavailable and I couldn't reach any one else! Little did I know that I made the mistake of attending classes anyway to try to give it my best shot and the school policy is that if you attend the class you will be charged for it. So I now have an "F" on my permanent record.
Bottom line is-I DIDN' T WANT TO GO IN THE FIRST PLACE!! And what amazes me is that I keep getting emails from them to come back or to attend as if I haven't already!
I would like to join in the class action lawsuit if I can. I would also like to get more information about it.
