<quoted text>Oh please Gibbs is a rip off. I guess your one of the students who never questioned why you were charged so much. I see you didn't learn much, because you spelled "waisted" instead of wasted. Look we all got over charged that's the bottom line. Everyone pays over 35,000.00 no matter what you major in and that's not fair.

They shut down for a good reason, of poor education and broken promises that they preached. Leaving many students broke, poor and left with a heavy debt. Plus maybe no legit credits to transfer to any other school. We got ripped off at Gibbs College Norwalk, CT.

I hope and pray that we all get compensated for an Profit Illusion.

My name is Sangar and I'm a former student of Gibbs College Norwalk, CT . I came accross your story on the web, and I understand your situation. I attended the school for 2 yr, and just like everyone that went to Gibbs my credit has been damaged due to this school. I am trying to put together a law suit since the school is closing as of March 09. Because of the time frame I believe the law suite would be against Career Education Corp because they owned Gibbs College. Seeing that Sallie Mae is a lender there would also be suit against them. CEC had to know that there school wasn't accredited. So much information was misleading. I've tried to obtain my transcript so I can complete my degree some where else and they will not release it to me because they claim I owe money. If you don't mind me asking. Have you heard from any other people about this situation? What have you done about your situation? I look forward to hearing from you soon. You may want to check out this website http://www.consumeraffairs.com/education/gibb... . The link is just info on other students in the same situation. I am also trying to find people who have already been through the process. I was made aware of a lawsuit in 2003-2004 against Gibbs. If you have any question feel free to ask me. I'm currently looking to gather students together to file suit.
I am interested, let's do this if there was a law suit in 2003-2004 can you contact the attorney?

Has anybody found a way to file a formal complaint about the issue? IDK if it will do anything but I found an edu.gov web site where I think everyone should file a formal complaint to see if anything can be done. If anything the goverment should be aware of the matter if the are not.
