If your like me and don't want anymore school loans for a degree that might be worthless and need some extra skills to help your entrepreneurial
spirit and increase creativity here you go.
I am young yet and have accepted the challenge of going at learning on my own in my own home outside of the school atmosphere.
I was ripped off by a for profit college called Westwood College.
They were charging me almost 20 grand a year for a degree.
18% interest on a private loan generated through their personal lender.
Their is a huge lawsuit
going on against them right now that if won will reimburse me for my expenses, but that
could take years.
Also loans through Sallie Mae that I got so easy I don't even know how, they should of never loaned to this school.
The curriculum was really poor, I attended their main campus in the whole U.S. and while the major I was going for had great teachers and was superb
everything outside of that was a joke.
For 20 grand a year I could have attended a private school whose overall program would be above par and include sports which is certainly a passion
Westwood College is a joke and the predatory ways they go about getting new students should be a thread in itself to expose the joke these for profit
colleges do kids.
Kids who are just happy to get into school with big dreams and they get annihilated. These dreams get shattered like glass with 80 grand in debt, a
worthless degree and no job.
I left after the first year and have talked to fellow students who graduated and have no job and are working jobs that pay 20 grand a year.
They said employers that they called who they have a specialized degree in working for laughed at them.
They said we don't respect Westwoods curriculum, on top of that none of their credits transfer.
No brick and mortar school respects their learning materials because they are not regionally accredited. And it is not that this curriculum did not
have the proper accreditation it was F****** poor.
Pardon my language but moneys money and I don't have a never ending reserve like the FDIC.
The only thing I got from this school, the only thing I got was some great connects and contacts.
So now that I am on my own with this ambition and motivation to be successful here is a great resource.
Here you go.
100 great learning
