Student loan debt and no certificate

I have to pay back all this money to a school that didn't teach me anything. The teachers never showed up and at the time I enrolled I was not working and didn't have an income so how did I end up with all this debt.

User's recommendation: don't go into debt with this school!

Still fighting for student loan forgiveness

I already have a review on this site. I'm sick of this. I was wondering if any of you graduates want to start a class action lawsuit. The Mass Attorney Generals Office won 1.6 million dollars for students that proved of being mislead. It was too late for me, never put my name on the list in time. I can prove it no problem. My student loan forgiveness application and a lot of documents are sitting on a desk some where. Meanwhile my future is literally on hold in so many ways at 56 years old. I'm Still fricken homeless, because I can't work a full time physical job and my credit score sucks. I never should of attended that so called college. I want my money back. I paid payments at first and had a $1000. Tax return taken from me. Justice is better in numbers.

User's recommendation: This is for all of us who graduated and is still waiting for that successful career you were promised.

Do not go here

This is the most unprofessional school I have ever attended. The professors are bias and inappropriate with students. Examples are yelling and calling students stupid as far as rumors of sexual relations with students. I have never felt more mistreated as a paying student here by the surgical technology program. I would never recommend anyone to this school, it is a waste of money and time.

Don't waist your time and money

I have such a resentment against this school. I have been doing research on the way I was mislead. I've got the names of four little girls who tormented me into tears with no support from the instructor Lucy. She had her favorite students. I was told that before I could get hired on with a good doctor's office I would have to fix my smile. I was told this a week before my pinning ceremony. My internship duties consisted of vacuuming and filing paper charts. I was so board!!! I complained about it to Lucy and she yelled at me saying if I was instructed to clean the toilet I was to do it the right way with no comments. I didn't pay $17,000 to be treated like this. I want my student loans forgiven. I want my credit score back. I need my income tax returns. I'm 55 years old and homeless. So much for graduating with a 3.88 GPA and having a good attendance record. The 5 schools went bankrupt but I heard that they re-opened a couple. The website totally talks about can't promise job placement. I'm looking for the commercial that was on TV in 2011 which stated that come join us and leave with an exciting new career. What a joke. Plus I wasn't told about the cost of the Medical Assistant certification test of over $100 plus the cost of the book and CD. And also money out of pocket called tuition every month if not paid could not attend classes. I want my money back I want my credit back. Thanks Branford Hall of Springfield Mass. on Industrial Ave. Class of 20 to 25 students. I'm going to say that 3 of us got jobs. Way to go.

Don't waist your money or your credit score.

I can't even apply for a credit card. It cost me $17000. All together in 2012 graduated with a 3.88 GPA. Had to still pay out of pocket every month because my Pell grants were not excepted. I just had my federal tax return taken away I am homeless. WTF. Could of got my CPA license for a lot cheaper. Right before graduation I was sat down and told my smile needed to be fixed to be hired a decent doctors office. I cried my eyes out that day. The Springfield MA. School went bankrupt the attorney general office is trying to help us. I want my credit score back so I can get a place to live. Also go back to school and finish my degree in graphic arts. I made the honor roll in 1996-67. Starting a new career in graphic design at home. I'm 55 I need to find the 2011 commercials in Springfield Mass basically promising students who enroll a new career. Email that right over to the Attorney General's office.
