  • I don't know how this school has any students. The only way I can see that they do is that they never graduate anyone. They register new students, have them attend orientation, yet never give them a start date or schedule for school. They never answer their phones and when you leave a voice mail, the call is never returned. Apparently they just recycle the students they already have in order to keep funding coming in
