I have been attending Brown Mackie College for 7 months now. Before I went to a University.
I started out in a rough place in life and explained my situation to all the staff. They acted sincere but during each class I was treated horribly. I was nearly homeless with only one outfit working my way back up. I was still counted off for not dressing in business apparel.
I am also pregnant and in a high risk pregnancy and they have refused to let me make up work for any days or even just hours I missed, I have explained in detail when I would be gone and how long ahead of time so that I could make up or do extra work, they did not allow it. Not on,y this but my financial aid has been messed up nearly three times. I never get my refund when I'm supposed to and they control it like I'm a child. 3 smaller incriminates over the 9 month period instead of all at once or in two sets like normal colleges.
Not to mention they cost twice the amount of a normal college. My stipend has been on hold for nearly three months and they just keep blowing me off. No matter how many times I call they tell me they don't know and they'll ask a supervisor. No one ever calls me back or gives me a straight honest answer, I'm sick and tired of this school.
It's a scam. I want so bad to protest in front of the building or slander them in every news paper. Not only have they pushed me around and treated me poorly but when I tried to transfer to an all online college since I'm due soon, I can't because Brown Mackie can legally hold my financial aid for 9 months! Even if I withdrawal or drop out I will not great that money back to attend a new school.
I'm forced to lose it or stay with them for the entire 9month term. And if I drop out for my delivery of all things I will owe the government. It's a scam that literally controls my life and I'm so broke and a single mother struggling that I can't do anything about it.
I hate Brown Mackie and I hope I can help warn people of their scandalous ways. DO NOT ATTEND BROWN MACKIE
