In 2008 I noticed that Everest University commercials were highly being flooded on TV every 5 to 10 minutes it seemed and this black guy in a baseball cap was standing outside in what looked like a parking lot at night time.
He stated "You're sitting on your couch not doing anything might as well get up, pick up the phone and call Everest".
I hadn't been to stale from recently graduating from high school at the time so I thought "Hey, why not"! Next thing you know I was calling Everest and speaking with an advisor. Now I want lie when I say that I really didn't do any research on this school because I was young, excited, & eager to start my new career. However, despite my lack of knowledge I still should have been honestly informed on their accredition and credentials of the school. I was told it was accredited, I was told after graduating I would be able to gain employment through the college. [continued below]....
..... I was pushed to keep pursuing my career at the maximum so that I could begin a brand new career with my Associates in Criminal Investigation.

Upon completing my 2 years of school I had to tussle & rassle to receive my degree through the mail because I had just moved to another state around the time of graduating. I started out with a career advisor who tried to help me place a job but it never happened. They tell you that they will stand by you even after you graduate which is a lye. I recently moved to Tampa, Florida over the last couple of months and get this the online college that I attended actually was located in Tampa, FL surprisingly minutes from where I lived so I thought cool, I'm new to the area my old school is right there I know they will help me seek employment!! Not! I went into the university and spoke with career services in hope to help me find a job. She told me to email her my resume and I did & she never responded, I called back again and someone told me she was out of the country & didn't know when shed be back.

I haven't seen such a scam since the pyrimid scam came out. This was by far the most bizzare thing I've ever went through and I would like to sue Everest University so bad that the whole establishment shuts down. Its not about the money its to stop many other innocent people from going through what I've been through and hundreds of other people! I admit my part in not doing my research and I've regretted that everyday but its time Everest admit and pay up for scamming so many people and making u think your starting a new life in a career when really all you're doing is starting a life time of debt with no employment to back up your debt!
