Yes, it is a bummer they are closing. I currently attend there, but I am going to try and go to SWIC, because I have heard from many people who have graduated from there havent gotten jobs, or they havent helped with job placement. Overall I really like the school and the instructors, its a shame.

It is a shame they are closing. I graduated in 2010 and still haven't been able to find a job. I now attend Swic so I'm hoping for a better turnout.

Close them all. That "school" is a joke. the credits dont mean anything anywhere and wont transfer anywhere. They take a lot of money from people and then the people cant get hired anywhere because they went to Sanford Brown...

You will have to start your cleese over becuase the credits aren't transferable. I graduated with my associates from Sanford Brown and went and signed up at SWIC and they told me I had to start over. I WAS PISSED!!!!!

I know ill have to start my classes over. And I have already attended Sandford Brown for 9 months now, so that is a bummber. But knowing that it isn't even worth it to finish there and worth it just to go somewere else, ill get over it. I wish I would have read more into my options before I chose my school.

They take advantage of the poor. I went to a private two year and paid the same amount that sanford brown charges. They hope that you'll think,"oh I can pay later?" Like you dont have that option anywhere.

I am a recent graduate from SBC and I found a great job within about 3 months of graduating. Career services will help you find a job--as in they will give you leads, help you with your resume, ect. But they don't find you a job--it's not a babysitting service. Put forth the effort and find one yourself. However, I am extremely disappointed that the campus is expected to close by 2014. They're calling it "teach out" but it sounds more like a cop out to me! Could it have something to do with the fact that the campus will be losing their 10 yr tax exemtion around that same time?...fishy.

Actually, I graduated from SBC with a bachelors, and I am not at Webster for my masters. My guess is you never went to this school, or your one of those people that felt their degree should be handed to them and you never did any work.

Explain to me why I have a job in accounting two weeks after graduation. Explain to me why my credits transferred to Webster for my masters degree.
