I tried for years to find help

I tried for years to find help when a for-profit college misrepresented itself to me. Lucky enough, someone I knew pointed me to Veteran's Education Success. They were able to help me with the VA system and put me in contact with free lawyers who could help. Within a year I was able to reach an agreement with the college in question and now I have a little less to worry about.

Deceptive practices

I believe that the University of Phoenix is using deceptive practices in order to lure students into the school. The enrollment counselors tell students that they should be complete with their course of studies in a short period of time, fully knowing how long it is going to take. . . . I have talked with other students at the University of Phoenix and this appears to be a common tactic used by University of Phoenix enrollment counselors.

My program had a success rate of only 38%

“I was told that the Art Institute had a 93% job placement rating and since the school had campuses all over the U.S., that I would have access to a nationwide network of employers… It wasn't until near the end of my schooling that I began to realize that a lot of the training I was getting was outdated, in some instances by a few years, and that I had a long way to go until I was up to par with the industry standards. I also found out that… my program had a success rate of only 38%. I have student loans that I am going to be paying off for years and really I have nothing to show for it.”
