Well that’s one way to take care of your student loans! But in all seriousness, a Jackson County jury recently ruled against Vatterott College to the tune of $13 million dollars for violating the Missouri Merchandising Practices Act. Basically, the ruling will allow those who were mislead in thinking they were getting a valuable degree. The ruling sheds light on the booming for-profit college industry that has long been criticized for guiding students to expensive courses of study that lead to few or low-wage employment. An appeal is expected.

    Hello my name is Kenny Gill I really don’t know if this apply to me but I attend Vatterott College from 01′ to 03′ for Computer Technology. I received my certificate because I got mislead about what was supposed to been a career for me. I was told that I was going to work out in the field as soon as possible as if repairing computers instead they told me that what I wanted to do wasn’t going to pick up until 10 to 12 years laterwhich I was told different in the beginning when I signed up! So I don’t know if this apply to me or not!
