It is very unlikely that you would be successful in suing the school for damages.
I can understand your frustration with student loans (just about any young lawyer can), but if you could sue for being dissatisfied with your education I am certain there would be a line of people around the block waiting to get in and get their lawsuit started.
In accordance with the Avvo community guidelines, this communication does not constitute "legal advice", nor does it form an attorney-client relationship. You should seek counsel in your geographic area regarding any specific questions.
There is currently a lot of political and legal activity pertaining to for-profit schools, and the activity level expands almost daily. Your best strategy is to Google the name of your school to determine if there are existing lawsuits against it on similar grounds. If so, reach out to the attorneys handling those cases. They will be in an advantageous position to determine whether you might be added in as a party, or can support a related claim or case. They will have the most active interest in developing your facts for a potential claim.
Good luck to you.
My responses to questions on Avvo are never intended as legal advice and must not be relied upon as legal advice. I give legal advice only in the course of an attorney-client relationship. Exchange of information through Avvo's Questions forum does not establish an attorney-client relationship with me. That relationship is established only by individual consultation and execution of a written agreement for legal services.
The sad truth is many degrees aren't worth the time and money spent obtaining them. The focus has been on for-profit schools for varioius political reasons but graduates discovering they have dedicated substantial time and financial resources to get a degree which does not result in good-paying work is increasingly common. No, you have no case unless you can prove that a specific promise was made which was not kept. The economy is not producing enough high- or even medium-paying jobs and each business cycle it gets a bit worse for those who are getting started.
