Consumer Complaint: I think that this school tried to attack me. 1. I did not qualify for the school. The requirement is a XXXX SAT when I only had a XXXX.
2. I failed the placement test miserably and got no questions right.
3. I could not afford first semester and my parents couldnt give me one cent so the school offered to waive some of it so I can start first semester.
4. The school could not place a hold on the tuition because I had no money to purchase a hold on the tuition so the tuition will not increase each year.
I think they hurt me by preventing me from city schools or other city assistance. They did not start my first semester in any kind of XXXX level. The school only would give me XXXX XXXX degrees. The school prevented me from increasing my XXXX levels and did not offer options to gain XXXX skills to reach XXXX levels. The school limited my options towards success forcing me to only pursue XXXX using XXXX XXXX.
