Complaint / review text:
They will hold meetings all the time to convince students they are doing the right thing. When you go to the school for a tour, they will have you talk to current students and teachers about what the school is like. Seriously, it is a load of bull st. They act like they care so when the government and corporate people come in they look good. On a daily basis, that is not what the school is like. They are do worried about how they are going to rape students for tuition dollars rather than doing the right thing. What really me off is how much work they put in to covering things up and making it look like they do the right thing. If there is one thing they are good at it is covering up the truth. I could give you examples all day regarding issues that they covered things up, falsified records, lied, defrauded the government for student loan money. The list goes on. I have cried so many times I can't even tell you.
I was one of those people that bought into the lies from day one. When they took me on their tour I was impressed. Now I know, it is bait and switch. They must pay off a couple students to give good comments about the school during the tour because everyone I know hates Empire. I see lie after lie, cover up after cover up, and it makes me sick.
Even their website and online information is a bunch of bull st. My school director told me that the company creates their own good reviews. They buy websites, have a marketing department that writes reviews, build up their school using "tech" tricks. None of it is real.
If there is one thing I can stress over and over it is that none of what you see is real. They are so unethical and are some of the best liars I have ever seen in my life. I suppose you will only find out for yourself if you are dumb enough to believe the lies like I was and go to school there.
