LIES AND DECPTION

I completed a 2 year associate degree in 18 months because I had credits transfer in. No one told me that my credits at Brown Mackie would not transfer to other schools. I did not even learn enough to pass the test for medical assisting, yet I made all A's. Not sure how that happens. I now have $20,000 in student loans that I will soon have to start paying on. Is there anyone that knows of a class action suit against them that I could join or even how to start one?? I am REALLY not looking forward to paying back $20,000 when the school was useless and full of lies.

Brown Mackie College

BMC wasted my time and my money.. is there any class action law suits that I can join??? I have an associates degree in Pharmacy Technology that no one will accept. I was told that I could use this degree to complete my 4yr degree (bachelors) I have wasted over $24K and the student loan people are beating down my door.

Where do I start?

Long story short I have dropped out three times due to being lied too about my financial aid. I have been told I have enough to graduate and then last minute have to drop out because Im out of money. Where/who do I need to talk to about a law suit?

a complete scam

I attended brown mackie salina for two years and revived an associates degree. I now owe over thirty thousand in school loans and have a worthless degree. The school does not have actual professors just regular people in that field that could not even answer questions that were asked in the text book. I believe that this school has scammed many people in this area and must be stopped. Anyone that has any information about a class action lawsuit against brown mackie could you please email me at rhipea1@yahoo.com.

LIES AND DECEPTION

February 25, 2012
To Whom it may concern:
I’m a student at Brown Mackie located in Cincinnati Ohio at the Glendale campus.Im in the Practical Nursing program and writing you on behalf of how the program is being ran. I ask that you investigate this program for certain reasons. I have many reasons to believe that the program is being ran incorrectly.
As a student I feel I’m looked at as money instead of a student. The success rate is low. This school has classes in the nursing program that have a 50/50 pass fail rate. To me it would be more logically to examine to class/teacher when students repeatedly fail certain classes. Skills ll(pn1130) hasn’t been successful. Since Oct-Feb this class has had three different teachers and as result was problems and unsuccessful attempts by the students.
In some classes students who fail receive points to pass. Its like the program has pushed students along throughout January 2011 into 2012 present. I feel like if you push "some" students along then push "all” students along. If some students receive points all students should receive points when needed. Check the records. This school teaches the students nurses should be honest. I feel that they need to lead by example and hire honest teachers. This to me shows favoritism and doesn’t display characteristics they tell us to maintain.
I have two children. I have invested too much money, energy and time to be treated like I have been. Every month there is new rules and teachers no stability. The students should be accommodated better than what they are. I feel that if the students had the same teachers the student will feel more comfortable and ultimately succeed. I also don’t like the fact the teachers behave in a child like manner and discuss inappropriate subjects like other students or teachers in front of the students. Students should be able to confide in their teachers not feel threatened or have to worry about hippa violations or personal information leaked.
I feel like I’m being robbed of my money. I feel brown Mackie doesn’t care about the students nor the success of the students. If brown Mackie really cared about the students success the programs success rates would show otherwise. I feel that the medical assistant program should have to maintain a 80 percent overall GPA, instead they have to maintain a 70. When I first started the program I signed a contract with tuition being a set amount as well as the times allowed to fail a class being six. Months into the program students were notified tuition increased and that failure rate decreased. To me that was a way of making money. I felt stuck midway threw the program.
I am as well as other class mates are unhappy student. I feel robbed of my money and belittled like I’m just a pawn to make money. I don’t think the tution, points given out, the instructors, certain classes being pushed along is fair to me. I have never received points nor been pushed along in this program. I asked the records and teachers get reviewed from Jan 2011 to Feb. 2012 present. I feel like I’m trapped and not in a professional setting. This is beyond ridiculous .I feel they need to set a entrance test for nursing students. Why are the students failing midway and towards the end of the programs instead of the beginning? In most schools student drop off that weren’t serious at the start of the program. My dream is to ultimately become a nurse. Please help me do so. This program needs to be looked into.
 
Thanks

LIES AND DECEPTION

They told me my books were included too and guess what...they were not. This school is everywhere is bull shit and I paid out my *** for a worthless education. I am too scared to try to get a job due to the fact it is medical and I do not want the responsibility of putting someone at risk because my education was not up to par. I wish I could figure out a way to sue the school...they can have my damn associates degree back...and just get the money back I owe on student loans. Right now, I am so very angry with myself for falling for the crap they said and even more disappointed in myself for continuing to go to a school that I knew was not on the up and up. I just kept thinking it would have to get better...it did not...kept getting worse. I do not know...I know I will never see the money again and I will have to pay the loans back...but, I just wish I could do something so no one else is deprived of a good education. But what? All I can do is tell everyone that is thinking of going there that I meet to run the other way and do not even go in to ask about the school...talk about harrassment...Hopkinsville, Ky Brown Mackie found me in my home town of Marshall, Texas where I was visiting and developed bronchitis and was hospitalized...they called me in the f***ing hospital to make sure I was going to attend school the next week... made myself believe "oh, how nice...a school that cares"...little did I know it was only concern for the green in my pocket. Anyway, I have rambled on enough...I could go on and on too...lol...My advice is to NOT have anything to do with this school what so ever...Please, don't add to the LONG list of angry students

I attend the Brown Mackie in Louisville and just found out that they are being investingated and might go bankrupt. There tuton rates increase and allthough you have a signed contract you still have to pay the extra fees. I have only been going there since july and they already want me to take out another 1600 on my student loans. They told me that books were included in the cost and at my last sit down with financial aid they told me that my account went over on book cost and that i needed to pay more money. They took me out of class just so i would have to wait and to be told that i need to pay more money to the school when i asked about making monthly payments she told me that the cost every month would be low and when i asked how much i would have to pay everymonth she told me 345 a month (thats almost my mortgage payment on a 180, 000 home loan) that is not cheap for a 19 year old mother of two. the LPN director left becuase the school wouldnt give student there diploma because they still owed moeny to the school. This is school is a bunch of bull shit and every student who goes there should not have to pay anything back except for there books.
