My school promised me a good job when I walked out of the school what I got in return was nothing. I graduated with a criminal justice degree for all so they can say to go and apply for as a security guard I could have done that with out a degree. They also said it was hands o. Training nothing of that ever happend. They gave us stuff to learn that o don't even use today. All I want is for them to remove my loans and pay me back my tuition. I'm not the only one I kept in touch with some class mates and they are mad and disappointed that they brainwashed ups and riped us off. Please who can help me I'm really disappointed I walked out of that school working for dairy queen and housecleaning.all the "jobs" didn't accept my certificate that I have no experience etc etc
I hate to break it to you, but your wish is not likely to happen. First, do some searching and see if there are any pending civil suits or regulatory (e.g. State Attorney General, Fed. Dept. of Education) suits against the school and see if you can get in on those cases. Even if there are such suits, the odds of getting full student loan forgiveness or reimbursement of tuition is remote.
Beyond that, these cases are, at present, not economical to bring. The main statutory basis for the claim is Unfair and Deceptive Trade Practices Act, however, as I understand it, in AZ, its version does not give consumers (you) the right to sue. The AZ UDTPA is strictly administrative and enforced by the state attorney general. Then that leaves fraud. The problem is the "promise of a good job" is probably the WEAKEST of claims to bring against the school. You MUST have smoking guns in the form of written material and that written material must, in fact (on its face), be false and misleading. That is very hard to prove. A school doesn't control the job market or your ability to get a job. The schools are usually pretty good about not over-promising on these claims. You need more than just the bare assertion that the school said you should be able to get a good job when you graduate.
As mentioned, these cases, even half way decent cases are not economical to bring. The reason is that both liability and the amount damages (the ability to prove and quantify damages) are speculative at best. If the case actually goes the distance, you are talking about a case that costs upwards of $150,000 to $250,000 to bring. Do you have a $150,000 to throw at this case? No law firm is going to devote its resources to such a case because the outcome is just too speculative with no real guarantee of recovery.
Now, if someone were to give me $30,000,000 as an endowment to fund a private, non-profit law firm, I would bring these cases all day, but no one has given me such a gift.
