    Folks, SPEAK UP and SPEAK OUT...

    Advertisements



    If we all organize as a group and start to question the practices of SMU administration, which is a corporation in the state of Florida, we may just get somewhere.

    We need to start questioning their practices NOW, before its to late. If everyone who thinks that their investment in this school is in jeopardy contacts the ACLU, we can probably get some government body to look into their practices as an institution and we can probably get some guidance on how we can protect our investment. I urge all students concerned and interested to fill out the following complaint form with the ACLU. Please Note: We need a VOICE - so the more the better.

    ACLU of Florida

    ACLU of Florida

    Also, another good place to go is to the site of the Attorney General of the State of Florida. Florida Attorney General - Consumer Complaint Form

    The greatest thing we can allow to deceive us is ourselves and our own thought process which says "this is a caribbean school, they can do whatever they want." Or, "they gave a chance we otherwise would not have had". Oh whatever, the way I see it, it was a 2 way exchange, we got something, they got something. It doesnt mean I was signing up to be prostituted by SMU administration for my tuition dollars.

    Hey kids. Have you ever thought that this might have the OPPOSITE effect of what you want it to have? Trying to prompt some type of investigation just might backfire on you. The student voice is important, but you need to know what you are doing first. And apparently you don't.

    howdyag, can you back up your point? And is it possible that not prompting an investigation may backfire as well?

    Thats what I would like for you to do. How can filing a complaint backfire? Please provide some legitimate examples? Otherwise, everyone take a look at the power we will have if we organize and get legal counsel. Take a look at the link below. A group of students ORGANIZED, and filed a class action lawsuit against their law school which was a private school in Kentucky. The lawsuit was for $120M for poor school administration and misappropriation of funds. This is the power of organization.

    Feast your eyes on this.

    This type of precedent is just what we need. We need to expose this school. We will raise awareness and they will not be able to continue to "screw us".

    Easy tiger, Im not attempting to sue anybody, I just want to have a school to attend, if council finds something wrong then we would move on from there. My biggest concern is making sure we arent on a death spiral that we need to bail out from. Peice of mind is short in these parts!

    Filing complaints against your own school sounds like a good way to make our education worthless. Don't you think that the possible negative outcome of doing such a thing far outweighs the positive?

    If you get somewhere, great...if not, I've got over $200K and 4 years that I won't be able to get back. This is really a slippery slope and I really hope that everyone will think long and hard about it before making a decision. We already have bad press with the California issue. Do we really need more?
