Josef Silny and Associates — Incorrect educational credential evaluation, no refund
Josef Silny & Associates (http://www.jsilny.com) has a nice company web site, but when the online application status said "All documents received: Yes" that did not mean much. They still requested a new application form and more money, because the one I sent was supposedly an old form (I picked it up the day before at school). A week later they wrote to me that they needed original official documents. The web site asked for officials documents only, not originals, so I sent notarized copies. Even worse, they did not recognize the right equivalent education in the US, and when I sent them supporting documentation from several sources, including an international database, they said that they are using a different paid version of the same database... At the end they were very sorry, but their professional opinion was such and such (unfortunately wrong), and of course there was no refund. Be aware! Try better alternatives, such as WES (World Education Services) at www.wes.org.
