Baker College of Owosso Complaint - Baker College Waste of Time

Review by SunnyW on 2010-11-12
OWOSSO, MICHIGAN -- --My experience with Baker college of Owosso started with who I believe is the dean, or person in charge of everything at Baker of Owosso. He started of by saying Baker college does not advertise (I passed a billboard, heard radio and TV ads...). Ok little peeved that he lied there... I brushed it off.
--I had to retake a class at Baker college since my credit did not transfer from a previous school. Before I got an A in the class... this time around(It's the same work mind you) I received a D!!
--After this I went to see a counselor to make sure I could take a summer class and that my loans/fafsa/grants covered everything. He reassured me several times that everything would be covered. I went to take said class and I owed the school $500 before I could start!! I let the school know... I never saw him in his office again he was "let go". It seems that he had done this before, according to other students.
-- At this point I am frustrated. I am completely my fafsa for the new year. However one paper is postponed on my part due to a family death. I called two months later, and faxed the paper that day. The next day I receive an e-mail stating that they had none of the paperwork that I had turned in. (This paperwork was tax forms with mine and my fathers S. S. number, Fist/last name, Address, Ect.).
Because of Baker I am now trying to figure out how to prevent fraud to my credit and taxes... Thank you Baker College of Owosso...

Inexcusable for a private institution.

I entered Baker in Allen Park as a fresh start. What a joke the instructors are confusing just as confused as I was I already have some college credits but it's been a while so I thought I needed to start over. Baker was a huge waste of money!! I'm very sad that I wasted my time and money. My cousin graduated Baker 2 years ago and is still working at her waitressing job so I don't know about the 98% employment that they advertise either. Do your research people before you drop $3,000 on one semester!!!

From my understanding, the 98% employment of "available" graduates are mostly taken from an alumni questionnaire that fed up people don't even fill out.
