Re: “Law School: Federal complaint filed against for-profit ITT Tech

ITT Technical Institute in Fort Lauderdale, Florida tricked me into signing up for high interest private student loans that were never explained to me. Private student loans were never once mentioned to either me or my mother and father. They rushed us through the entire sign up process and I was just an excited 18 year old fresh out of high school thinking I was doing the right thing. I don't think I passed the entrance exam but the ITT Tech salesman told me that I did anyway. I wanted so badly to believe him and so I did. All I ever wanted to do was go to college and get a decent education and a great paying job. I had no idea that it was all smoke and mirrors. I attended between 2004 and 2006 and here is my experience of that time there. What they offered me was absolutely in no way what was described or advertised. My grades and GPA were artificially inflated by administration in order to keep the schools average GPA up, they were actually caught doing this. The classrooms were completely outdated, the computers were outdated by at least 6 years and software such as Photoshop was always at least 5 versions behind the current version. Most of the instructors knew less than a lot of the students in each classroom. Instructors were fired and hired at least a few times per course per semester. The new instructor would never know exactly where the previous instructor left off and it was just a complete disaster. Some instructors would just read directly from the book, some would just sit around and try to make friends with the students and let everyone do whatever they wanted. This is not a way to run the school and I feel absolutely scammed that I am going to be paying $117,000 with interest on a $60,000 loan for a degree that most employer's seem to shun. That being said, I would like a refund for the absolute lack of education I received. The fact that ITT Tech is currently being sued by the CFPB for predatory practices is exactly why I am here. Predatory lending is exactly what I experienced among myriad other disasters and major shortcomings that a major "college" chain should have standard.
