I think this lawsuit is completely baseless. Whatever happened to "buyer
beware?" If you're dumb and desperate enough to enroll at one of these
fake schools when there are plenty of viable alternatives available, you get
what you deserve. I love how the plaintiffs here claim that the classes were
worthless. Hmmm, you think? I've never been to one, but I could have told you
that just by seeing one of their commercials on TV. I am not a fan of these
for-profit schools, but I hope they win this lawsuit. There is a reason why
social classes exist in this country, and it's poor decisions like enrolling at
these fake colleges that tops the list.
It's true that there is a choice and a personal accountability for the decision
to attend these colleges.The problem is that they are toying with
our tax dollars. I applaud the increased strutiny of for profit schools
ensuring they have comparable student loan default rates.s
@ Ogdenite:It's too early to tell whether the plaintiffs will
prevail in this suit, but on their face, the allegations meet the legal criteria
for a fraud cause of action: (a) the defendants made certain misrepresentations;
(b) that the plaintiffs reasonably relied upon; (c) to their detriment. In
other words, if the facts alleged in the complaint are true, the lawsuit is
certainly not "baseless."By your reasoning, no naive (or
to use your lovely words, "dumb and desperate") person could ever
recover damages for fraud, and that's not what the law says.
Everything the students were going through is true. I have been a student at the
Everest college in Las Vegas, Nevada for 2 years and two of my teachers have
admitted to myself and other students that they have never taught a class before
and hardly know the subjects. Also, one teacher sent us home every other day
because he hated math and didnt want to teach it. My self and most of my class
mates never learned anything at all. Everest lied to me about transferring
credits. My lab teacher told me that because im cute, I will pass her class.
WOW! I asked the Dean of the school why the school is so over crowded and
students are forced to sit on the cold floor to learn? I also asked him "Is
it about the money?" He replied and I quote "Yes it is". Everest
taught me nothing in two years and now I owe thousands. I need an Attorney also.
