At first I was happy to start this school and its paralegal program because of its claims of an intense curriculum. I soon found out there were things not discussed in the initial interviews. First, they have a very strict dress code and will send you home and mark you absent for the day if violated. This can be costly if you dont own the clothes they favor. Second, if you fail a single class, you automatically get booted from the school for a year. You may as well withdraw after that. Third, the class schedules are fixed and unchangeable, starting as early as 8am and ending as late as 4pm. This can be a huge hassle if you plan to work while going to school. For half the classes I had, we watched movies and took tests on the movies. Some of the movies we watched were Joe Dirt, Wallstreet, The Pursuit of Happiness, 12 Angry Men, and Crash. Is that what you consider higher education? The director even told us that if we missed a certain amount of days, she would call our parents and notify them. I am 25 years old, and some of the other students were in their 40s. That was extremely inappropriate for her to say. They also have suspicious financial organization, and an obscure line between whether or not they actually are accredited to give associates DEGREES. This school is too expensive ($30K) to have these problems. Please do your research on this school before attending!!!!

I am attending Bradford School right now. And although you finish first, it is to time consuming when it comes down to working to pay rent, and trying to get an education. The core instructor of my program calls my house phone and cell phone when I can't make it. And she forced me to go when I was very ill. I am trying to do my best. Personally, when I was applying for Bradford I was under the impression that I would be receiving a degree, and so did half of my class. We soon found out it was a diploma and when we asked about it we were blown off. Some might have a great experience there, and some may not. But I have to say it is to demanding for a "school" not even a "college". The classes are so easy and do not even test you on your skill. Some times you can miss up to 3 weeks and get caught up in about 2 days. But if you don't go to school you can get dismissed which none of us knew about either! I don't know what is going on I just know that they must make stuff up as they go along or they fail to tell you things until its too late! Agh! Also I was told in class that my opinion is wrong! How is a students opinion wrong? Isn't it wrong for a teacher a "role model" to tell you that your opinion is wrong? Maybe its just me but they do NOT know how to run a school.

The Bradford School is amazing! A little expensive, but they have great programs and the people there are very helpful! It's easy to find and get to, too.
