Mr. David Ruiggeri

Please explain what the admissions process is at FTC. When I signed up..it was nothing at all..no test..no real questions about your ability to benefit from the program you sign up for. I read earlier where you stated that out of every 100 people who attempt to get in only 15 get in? Really? My pet fish could get in. It's a joke. So please inform me of the admission requirements at FTC and of the entrance exam. Perhaps someone at the Lakeland Campus was not aware. But of course that is doubtful. And as for your staff..your regional chair, you know the one that is a certified bartender trainer, or some non sense..the same one that was arrested in 1997 for burglary of a dwelling with assault or battery, perhaps she should be educated on discrimination laws, civil rights, health issues and the different stages of disease. Perhaps you should educate your self on the ethical and right way to run a school. You and your staff are no better than someone who robs a bank..or better yet Food Stamp Fraud, everyone one in Lakeland is so informed on food stamps..funny..you take educational funds from the US Gov. On behalf of students who will not benefit from the education. You should be ashamed and you should realize not every student that goes to FTC is not ignorant, disadvantaged and uninformed. One day a student will go after FTC and put it out of business. This school is the lowest of the low, and you and anyone involved in this straight up fraud should be ashamed. So....please inform of the admissions criteria.

Thank you

You Sir are a liar

AUTHOR: Whiteyford - ()

Once again I am not an ex-employee...funny though seems that you are aware of many unhappy employees and students. I have called your office numerous times..you never pick up or it goes directly to voice mail. I also find it hard to believe that a COO such as yourself, with webs sites to manage, schools to build, and stacks of the governments money to count is really posting on this web site. I'm sure one of your staff is taking care of it for you. Is it not true that these schools have all been under investigation? The education provided is not up to par with what the community is looking for. I in fact have documentation that FTC graduates are not considered educated enough to work in many offices, and that in fact when a resume comes to HR with FTC graduate on it, it is disregarded as a joke.. An unqualified applicant. So keep defending your scam of a school ..eventually you will again be put under investigation just like you were with Corinthian.

By the way, has a family member of yours graduated from FTC? And become a successful member of society? This is doubtful...count your money while you can. The day FTC is brought down will be a burden off of the real tax payers and hard working people that are funding your ridiculous scam of a school.

#3 UPDATE Employee

No Actually

AUTHOR: David Ruggieri - ()

Because you are not a student. And for the record call me any time at 407 447 7300.

Again, disgruntled employees pretending to be students is a tactic that can only be appreciated by those who do the same thing.

If you are/or were a student and you have an issue, address it.

If you are an ex-employee who could not, or would not do their job - move on.

Either way accept responsibility for what you actually do and for the value you actually create - spend more time looking for a job you can do and quit wasting your time on this ridiculous effort.

If you have an issue - deal with it.

Did you misunderstand

AUTHOR: Whiteyford - ()

Did you not understand what I wrote? You don't believe I am a student? Why, because you depend on lessmeducated people to attend college there? Of course you do, that is clear. And believe me sir I am using other methods of having my voice heard. I choose to post here, so other people avoid your scam of a school. Why do,you constantly troll this sight? Because you known FTC is a scam, that's why. By the way are you the same COO that used to be with Corinthian Colleges? You know ..the ones who were investigated for taking advantage of the underprivileged? We're fined $1,000,000 or donated the money to the Urban League? Call your Lakeland school. Talk to the people who work there, they know who I am. And mad! Yes sir, mad enough to make sure your put out of business..Mad that your administration is Lakeland are liars, mad that you are stealing from the government. But amused enough, that you spend your time defending your school On the RIP OFF REPORT. That is an admission in itself. And I will be glad to speak to you, but see you omitted Your phone number...

#5 UPDATE Employee

You Sound Like a Person Who is Struggling

AUTHOR: David Ruggieri - ()

You do not sound like a student, but maybe a disgruntled employee, one who generally we wind up terminating for attitude issues - with all that hostility and an inability, that comes accross clearly to me. I am sorry it dis not work out for you at FTC and even more sorry you are omitting your name. It is easy to hide behind acquisitions with nothing more than personal biased opinion. Our admissions standards are published - if your not familiar with them then that may be a reason you did not excel. However, they are clear and we follow them - and yes - we actually do enroll about 13-15 people out of 100 people who are looking into FTC - that by the way seems to have worked for the more than thousand people who graduated from FTC in the past year. So your problem is, your problem - youur commentary about the school noted, but of little validation to me. If you wish to speak to it, call me and then maybe I will give your comments some serious consideration - but only if they have a valid foundation - yours don't at the moment. You are just complaining about, well nothing.

Now if you have a suggestion, tell me. I am open to constructive suggestions.

If not, you used the method to be heard. Thanks
