I went to westwood online at first I thought i was going to be getting a good education.. I was very wrong about that most of the instructers showed little interest in students but that is far from the problems at westwood I was there a total of 18 months i stopped school last november. In april 2007 after fighting trying to get a detailed total cost and breakdown of my school at westwood they finally sent a peice of notepad paper with some explination and some of the breakdown which it was costing 24,880.40 for 18months of school talking to them over the phone is difficult cause they arents clear but they assured me that was the total cost. Now after months I truely saw how bad of a scam they are. Yesterday i called up i was told the total fee's were 24,880.40 they said that sallemae only sent them 17,933.71 and thats why there was 6,946.69 with the collection agency and gave me a number to call sallemae then i found out they really got 30,028 from them and was told to have westwood call them to straighten it out when i called westwood agian i told them to call sallemae in which i was ignored i said sallemae has the records of each of the days that the school was paid the person i was talking to sounded like she didnt have anything on record in which she asked so i gave her the dates and amounts and she said i still owed the school the 6,946.69 she told me she would send me information regarding it and she would call me first to let me know if it couldnt be sent in pdf. Then she called back 20 mins after and told me the 24,880.40 wasnt the total amount and that i still had to pay the 6,946.69 back to them i asked them what is the total amount she couldnt give me an answer she said she had to calculate it i told her id wait and she said it will take time she said she would send it. Now today i got a call agian this time they told me that they got 29,000 from sallemae but the cost of my schooling still was higher and i owe them the 6,949.69 still she sent me a excel sheet which differs from the one they sent me back in april same sheet different values now my college is over 36k dollars for 18months of school with no degree and that 6.8k is with the collection agency so i regret ever going to school and i have no idea how im gonna fix this. Anyone who ever thinks of going to westwood just dont do it or you'll be another victim in westwoods horrible crime of scam's.
