I enrolled in Stratford Career Institute for Real Estate
Appraiser. I finish all but two test and decided to call the Real Estate State board to see what i had to do when i finish my course.

The lady asked me what school am I attending told her Stratford and she told me that they aren't a credited school. I called the school and talked to one of there instructor.

I asked about the course being credited and all she had to say was that it said that on your enrollment agreement. We read the paper up and down and it never said that it wasn't an non-credit cousre which all there course said to be non-credit course.

I spoked to a head man and he pretty much said the same thing. I told "so what people just like to spend $600.00 dollars just to learn about something". He realy couldn't say anything after that but, i still had to pay the rest of the amount. All in all i wasted 6 months of my time that was very vauable to me. Please do not do business with them usless you want to waste your money.

Quality of Complainers

AUTHOR: Rene - (U.S.A.)

I was seriously looking into enrolling at Stratford Institute and I went looking online for customer reviews to make sure it wasn't a "sham" of an operation. I really need to get a boost in my career, and college just isn't an option for me at this time. However, I'm now more concerned about the validity of the complaints than I am about the school itself after reading a few.

I've noticed on every site that has registered complaints about Stratford that the writing abilities of those angry customers (errr, students) is notably BAD! There are terrible punctuation, grammar, and spelling errors. If you're so uneducated that you can't even bother to proof-read your own postings, or use something as simple as spell check before pressing ENTER, then I can't believe that somehow in every bad circumstance it was the school's fault, and not your own!

I've read many wonderful reviews from graduates who have received their DIPLOMAS (not degrees...BIG and OBVIOUS difference, and one I've noticed the angry mob didn't notice before signing up), and all of their postings are understandable, professional, and give positive accounts of how their diploma has affected their current career positions. The complaints are just a bunch of mumbled, jumbled, rantings of people who probably didn't bother to read or investigate ANYTHING from the school prior to enrolling.

The customer ISN'T always right. I'll probably look into other schools now to make a more informed decision about Stratford, but for anyone thinking about adding a complaint, look at yourself for a minute and try to see if maybe YOU were the problem before spewing irreversible comments here! It's not helpful to the rest of us trying to make an EDUCATED decision about any company.

I am originally from Louisiana and I know how backwards that state can be. I think if you prepared for the state certification test, it should not matter a hill of beans where you went to school to learn the required material.
