Complaint / review text:
I attended Katharine Gibbs school for the certificate program in "visual communications" aka graphic design. Stepping foot into that "school" was the worst decision of my life. At first I loved it and completed the certificate program... Which was a joke. I think we got a piece of paper that one of the teachers designed and printed off saying we completed the program. Then they called me up a couple months later saying they were going to start offering the associates degree program in Piscataway with the final semester in Montclair Gibbs College. I agreed to do it because I wanted more than just the certificate. I should have ran as far away from them as possible.
Once I got to Montclair, I took an HTML class in which I knew more than the teacher. It was becoming incredibly hard for me to muster up the motivation to keep going back when I felt that I was being ripped off. They also had presented themselves as being properly accredited so that if I wanted to continue my education after graduating from Gibbs, I could. Well, I can't believe it's taken me this long... But life happened in between and I am now looking to get my bachelors and after that my masters degree.
I began researching schools and looking into my options, being 30 yrs old. Come to find out now that they were not properly accredited and my "degree" means nothing to any of the schools I want to apply for. I am so angry right now that I was basically scammed out of $30,000 (of which I still owe $10k) and have a worthless degree and worthless credits and got NOTHING in return. We were promised job searching assistance... I went to the "job center" one day and they had me sit at a computer and told me to start looking on Monster.com and then left me by myself! I could have done that from home... They did nothing to help me get a job... No leads, no internship opportunities, nothing. Can we PLEASE get a Class Action Lawsuit going against them? Either that or I want to sue them on my own. Does anyone know how to get the ball rolling?
