I am so sick of schools taking advantage of people who want to do something with their lives as far as education,and then you have people like the college adminstrators who see nothing wrong! That really upsets me.I just hope that the students don't get caught up in the scam.I really hope that the Dept. of ED. overlook the monies borrowed for the training for these students or give them another oppertunity to attend classes somewhere ele so that they can further their education without holding them at fault!!!! I hope that the school get fined for all that they have done wrong.And I hope that this is an eye-opner to anyone who thinks that they can play with people's lives like this.....

students in the paralegal program must swear not to notice that the lawyers they intern with routinely pimp judges.

all depends on what the search warrant said but if I was a student I'd clear out and demand my money returned.

Possibly a money laundering scheme or a front for Organized Crime. But when you have the heavy's in there it's a biggie.

I'm available for some of that massaging therapy work they we're doin. Let's just say it will give them some "hands on experience" while the school works out their problems.

Florida Career College's diplomas are still worth more than a UF diploma. Those are printed on Charmin.

How do you get a UF grad off of your porch? Pay him for the pizza.

This is an outrage! Don't the Feds have anything better to do than to harrass those poor innocent and defenseless little nerds.

i am currently a student at the west palm beach location, i am sure that this campus will be investigated as well since they are all connected. I went 13,000 in debt and I am very concerned. I definatly would agree its not like college, at all.

Good! Time to get rid of this and all the other diploma mills out there. If you want a college degree go to a real college!

You graduated in 2005 and want to start a law "suite"? No wonder they're closing this school down!
