CHARLOTTE NC. -- I have attended this school without any complaints & have completed the courses with a grade A &(2) B in the class. Another student & myself went without current (last teacher & newly hired) to an externship site on Wednesday, April 28, 2010. We were to begin Externship on Monday, May 3, 2010. That being said, a problem arose regarding my financial aid check that was due in December 09.
I called the school on Thursday, April 29, 2010, at 12:30 pm & spoke with the vice president as my financial aid check issued from this school (according to my financial aid loans the check was ready back in Jan. 2010) had "bounced" for whatever reason. The vice president kept blaming Wachovia bank- I went to the bank & they informed me they only process the transactions- they cannot do anything if the money is not available for whatever reason.
Now, Monday, May 3, 2010, I went up to the school & met with the vice president & she told me that the reason I did not get the externship was because my behavior was "obnoxious" - she told my counselor, that I had a "New York attitude" When I asked her what type of behavior I had as I had never been reprimanded by anyone, teachers or staff, while attending the school, but her response was "you are obnoxious " & just kept repeating that.
When I asked her if I could ask her some questions ie what her problem was with me- was she racist? She turned her head away & kept looking out the window as if nothing I had to say was important! (No class, not even low this woman had & I come to find out she does not even have a Bachelor's Degree!!!) whilst making tapping noises with her fingers on her desk! How rude!! Is this a professional attitude?? Especially for a so-called vice-president of a school? It appears to me she was angry that I complained about my "bounced" financial aid check & because the school has such a sad rating, many doctor offices refuse to have the school's students extern for them.
I paid a lot of money to go to this school & have worked in the professional world many years. I need advice as to what I can do. I have filed complaints with the appropriate agencies; as in this school, the new director loves to put on movies that do not pertain to the material we should be learning- ie we watched, The Blind Side, The Hangover- wow, really medical assisting material!!! Tks.
