you'all is right. Sullivan is for losers. How dare one of you ignorant hillbillies go to Sullivan. I'll tell you what will happend to a sullivan graduate. You won't find a job. You'll be a loser and no one will have sex with you. You'll starve and die then Jesus will send you to hell. You get exactly what you deserve. and I'll be making millions with my art histroy degree.

I graduated from Sullivan's graduate program in 2005, and have had great success. I've since more than doubled my salary, and now above 6 figure$$$. I worked hard in my classes at Sullivan, and continue to work hard for my employer. When I was doing my job search employers asked about my Sullivan experience I told them what I did in school, what I learned, and what I could do for them. The employer was always more interested in me by the time the interview was finished, instead of the school I attended. What's the old saying,'The harder I work the luckier I get'? There are no guarantees in life, and maybe I'm a lucky one, but it was my hard work with Sullivan's help that prepared me for the opportunities that have led to the career I have. No complaints on choosing Sullivan from me.

For those of you complaining about having an associate's degree and not being able to find a decent job, what do you expect?? The bachelor's degree is the new high school diploma, everyone and their mother has one. Here's even more bad news... in another 4-5 years the aster's degree will be just as common. The job market in this state is one of the worst in the entire country, and an associate's degree is not good enough, period.

Also, people have expectations that are WAY too high for what kind of job they will have and how much money they will make fresh out of college. People google "average starting salaries" and see figures like $45-50k and fail to realize that a) those studies are heavily flawed (don't differentiate between BA and MA, geographic biases, etc), and b) we live in one of the poorest states in the nation. Most new graduates around here get starting salaries in the very low $30s, if even that much.

I have been where you are. I have wondered I have an Associates degree and can't get anything at all. I have sent so many resumes out and I have been so so depressed. Now so in debt from Student loans and no job. No help from Career Services
Transfer to another school. at the time I transferred, everything transferred in, and I didn't have to retake any classes. it actually costed less than sullivan, too, because of fees they don't directly say you'll have. Right now, the legal market is really weak but transfer while you can. The EKU experience or big school experiences are amazing. I mean, all you have to do is apply and pay the transcript fee and they'll more than help you.

Right now EKU costs 2,700 for four courses plus books and that's it. No hidden fee bullshit because state schools are transferable. meaning they are straight forward. Sullivan had charged me 50 bucks a seat per class, then actual tuition was on a complete different page making it weird to find all the little fees. At EKU it is like a family, everyone is friendly, not snobby, you it feels like a real college with the humanities, women's studies, etc. I only had one huge auditorium class and that was it, the classes are the same size as sullivan.

But other schools are good too, just make sure they're bigger ones. And just hang in there because the legal market is weak right now, even for EKU students. When i was in the big recession wasn't so bad yet.

You got lucky because I had a 3.9, and six months experience. I was flat out denied free volunteering in Richmond because they even had EKU students to be free volunteers. I only got the job I did by saying I would transfer. And a huge deal was that the bankruptcy course at EKU includes a whole textbook on bankruptcy in the real estate class and at EKU students do three complete bankruptcies for real all the way through. EKU requires so much hands on experience it's crazy. In the probate class, we did how to settle taxes on a decedent's estate,along with completely filling out forms for a decedent, on the courts.gov cite. And the exams are 100 questions, mostly fill in the blank or essay. It's like learning three times more than at sullivan and a lot of people drop the program like flies because it's a lot of work. I mean give five full case briefs each week before other homework? I complained but got my good job going to a traditional school that ranks as the highest paralegal program in the state.

And the family law class does free work as a requirement for the class for the local legal aid. So imagine the family law class at sullivan doing divorces for real life clients at legal aid all the through or mostly through depending on how simple the divorces are? That's how much farther and above EKU goes compared to sullivan. Each class requires forms at the end, and five case briefs a week. We even had to do appellate briefs which are only required in law school, and we even had to buy the blue book citation.

That's why I had trouble with Sullivan. Employer's know this difference and they get the well rounded applicants with the science and humanities, etc., from larger schools.

I went in my interview, and got really lucky but only got one from saying I would transfer to EKU.

their graduation rate is on 50%, and they will suck every penny they can from you! speaking from knowledge an experience! I ended up leaving the school due to every time I turned around they were sending me a bill for something else. went to get a parking pass as well as some others, they put me off and guess what I got a $25.00 fine that day, so I am sure they probably searched the lot just to get those extra $$, as well as others got a ticket too! this happen to me twice! You have to get a new parking pass ever semester, they won't let you purchase a yearly one! it's just a way to get your money! They will never get another penny of mine that's for sure!

No ones hiring their grads because of the quality of their students. They don't care because they are only in it for the money. Have you seen their job postings? Min wage? Its insulting.
