Penn Foster Horrible Nightmare! Internet

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

When I enrolled at Penn Foster everything went very smoothly, I received all my information and my books on time.  After a few weeks, I noticed that my essays were not being graded in the "grading time" they had told me.  It started taking weeks to get grades for some things. I complained about it numorus times, both via email and telephone.  No one cared, they simply brushed me off and told me that they were really short staffed. 

I finally made the choice to transfer all my credits to WGU, however I still needed Penn Foster to grade 5 essays before they would even send my proctor tests to me.  I had a deadline to meet at WGU to have my credits trasferred, and I told PF many times about my deadline.  They didn't care! While I was speaking with one of the representatives there at the school about my credits, he stopped me and stated that I would have to make my payment in full in order for me to get any information from the school.  REALLY? I am asking about my academics and all you can care about is money!? 

I completely lost all resepect for anyone there, and the school itself.  It has been a nightmare, but I need to finish because I have already spent over $1,000 for their "certificate of general studies".. I can only hope that WGU will actually honor those credits...coming from a crappy "school" like Penn Foster.

Do NOT go to Penn Foster, worst school ever!!
