Complaint Review: University of Phoenix
University of Phoenix misled me throughout the recruiting process as they insisted that getting a bachelor in information technology would get me, not only into the door of the IT industry but also numerous job offers.
And, the University of Phoenix recruiter lied to me about the cost of the degree. I was quoted $25k for two years when, in reality, it turned out to be almost $33k. The recruiter and admissions counselor even convinced me to let the school automatically take care of the deposits for the loan.
Since graduating at the end of 2011 with a bachelor in IT from the University of Phoenix, I have applied to hundreds of entry level / desktop jobs and gotten ZERO face-to-face interviews. After spending two years of my life and racking up over $30,000 dollars in tuition… I expect something in return. I got NOTHING.
The truth is, a bachelor in IT from the University of Phoenix gives you absolutely no benefit when competing for even an entry level job in the IT industry. As a matter of fact, studying for a few months and passing the CompTIA A+ Certification is worth 1000x more to anyone looking to get an entry level IT job than earning a bachelor in IT from the University of Phoenix.
The fact that UoP’s recruiters and admission counselors lied to me and that I was naïve (no doubt) as they led me down a road with blatantly false information should not shield them from lawsuits. I am going to seek a lawyer to take up the case against UoP.
I was living in Florida at the time I was taking course online. If anyone has a lawsuit against UoP for misleading potential students or wants to join me in filing a suit against UoP, please contact me at your earliest opportunity.
