The Paralegal Institute Complete waste of money Phoenix, Arizona
I went here with the promise that this school would be one of the best ones out there to become a paralegal. The entrance was great, the admins were helpful and got me set up really fast. The first instructor I had was great. That is were the compliments ends.
The second instructor was horrible, she would change the requirements to assignments and not tell anyone about it and tell you once you failed the assignments. She told me she did this to check to make sure I was paying attention. (This is an online school). She expected you to be a mind reader, and know exactly what she wanted. She took off for things she had not yet teached, expecting us to now as much as she did. I requested a new instructor and the Dean of the school refused. I told them that if I did not get a new instructor, I would take my GI Bill elsewhere, and that is what I did. Then I filed a complaint with the VA.
The other posts from students where they felt defeated, they wish they had not paid to go there, and how much the disliked this instructor. I did my research, my instructor was a non practicing (no longer a member of the Bar Association of AZ or anywhere in the United States) attorney. I live in California and it is illegal for a non practicing attorney (not a member of the Bar Association) to teach law. I brought this up to the AZ Bar Association and they could have cared less. I did more reaserch about the school. Only one of their instructors are members of the bar association in AZ.
There are around 5 instructors for the whole online school, there are more admins than instructors. When I found out this information, I changed colleges. When you sign up they charge a lot for not getting anything. You have to purchase your books yourself, and have to have them by the first day of the new class, you have to pay for proctor exam. They take your money and give subpar education. My advice...steer clear of this learning institution, and I use that term loosely. It is not worth the hassle they bestow upon you.
