Envision EMI and the National Youth Leadership Forum should be ashamed of themselves. They offer a course call “FORUM ON LAW and CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION (CSI)”, this is the description as of today 08.21.2012 of the course
The National Youth Leadership Forum on Law and Crime Scene Investigation (CSI) is a summer high school student program that provides the nation’s top students with an in-depth look at the legal profession, the judicial process, forensics and crime scene investigation. Students taking part in the Forum on Law and CSI interact with nationally-recognized legal professionals, analyze different types of evidence and explore the process of forensic crime solving. Law and CSI students take an active role in a simulated trial and go behind the scenes at some of the most prominent law firms, universities and legal sites in Washington, D.C.
They talk in detail about the involvement of the course in CSI and the fact is that the course offers 1% or less on CSI and forensics. Of that 1% it is all related to Law and not the field of CSI. I and many other who have complained to the BBB have similar attitudes about the way they conduct there business and how they are misleading the public. I asked for a refund of the course only because it was completely misrepresented to my daughter and they refused. Admitting the whole time that the course was a law course and not a CSI course. This is not OK, it is misleading to the parents and students, and my daughter go nothing from the course because the idea was to see if she like CSI. It was presented to us as a travel from the crime scene through the lab and law process.
They also promised us a college credit, nothing in the material said anything about a required GPA, this is the ONLY reason I agreed to send her. They They call after she has completed the course and deny her the credit for her GPA. They should tell you that BEFORE they take your money. All they did was ask my daughter what her GPA was.
