Westwood College / run away
Unbelievable.. And so full of regret!! I have been a student at westwood college for almost two years now for a bachelors degree in criminal justice. I am stuck here!! This field is my passion and has been since I was young. As a new mother at only 20 yrs old I looked into many schools and made an appointment with.. Ugh.. Westwood college.
(Word to the wise: any school that has to have an admissions rep sales team in order to entice people to actually want to go there should be considered scary.)
I felt like this trashy lady who was the admissions rep was practically a "car salesman!!" I should have suspected something right there but she made everything sound so wonderful (Right!!) and I swear to god this woman told me that the college was regionally accredited and that "most if not all" other colleges would take me after I obtained a bachelors at westwood because my goal was to get a masters and she knew that. I had to meet with her one more time and she specified over and over to bring exactly $100 dollars for certain procedures. (I gave her the money and all that happened afterwards was the signing of a few papers and my school id photo.) afterwards, I got word they received comission. (I swear she must have pocketed that money.)
When school began it was not what I expected at all. I hoped for a professional and "higher learning institution".. Lol.. It was like a pre-school classroom in every room!! Literally. The classes were ridiculous and even two yrs later with one year left to go it still shocks me!! The most low-level type of people went here. Almost scummy and tasteless in a way. Just desperate to get a job I guess they were even easier targets.
As terms went on I felt trapped... And so full of regret for ever coming here!! I already owed so much money that I felt I couldn't leave because I had no where else to go with those "non-transferrable credits!!" so I just kept telling myself not to quit or give up. It will get better like they promised (I complained numerous times.)
Well... It never did:
-certain students are favored and the instructors will pass anyone. Even if they deserve to fail miserably!! I have always worked my # off studying and still retain close to a 3.90 after 2 yrs but if youre a lazy loser you might be getting that too just because the instructors are told to "spoonfeed" you in order to keep up grades in the institution.
-most of the teachers are terrible and have completely wasted my time!!!
-I feel like everytime i'm here i'm being sold something. Their all a bunch of salesman!!
-they all lie!!! The financial aide office especially.. I've already learned that lesson!!! They are the worst of all!!
-oohh and they will not find you a job or even help you with a resigme.. Dont believe they will when they tell you!!
-I could go on forever.
Just know i'm stuck here now.. With low-lifes who know they will never amount to anything but still come to just to feel a sense of accomplishment when a monkey could pass this school. (Just get on good terms with your teachers.. They'll pass you.. I work so hard and earn honest a's.. Others do not!!)
This school is fraud and I wish I could take back ever coming here. They lie to get you in till youre literally stuck. The teachers, faculty, and even students are trash!!
