Just another comment on Al Collins and how they

have treated my son who graduated from them.

Wish we found the Rip-off Report before!

My son moved back to the State of Washington after graduation. Placement at Al Collins consisted of mailing him a list of possible employers for which he needed to take the initiative to apply (most of them completely out of his area - others with no graphic design requirements).

A couple of cheerful phone calls from placement personnel with promises to check back and see how he'd done on interviews never materialized. Sure they cared!!(?)

He is presently working in graphic design, but it is definitely not any result of Al Collins placement efforts. I believe I could provide better results from my home computer than what he got from their official placement office for him and any other student.

As far as we know they didn't even send one letter on his behalf. As a result of their student housing, even though he paid all his rent promptly - he was erroneously sent to a credit agency and now he cannot get credit anywhere. We have the letter from RnR Real Estate Marketing (their agent) telling Bonded Collections of Tempe it was their error, but Bonded Collections never removed their incorrect notation and our son's credit is now damaged.

I urge you to think twice about getting involved with this school and its student housing. I will be the first to retract this letter if they suddenly work to get my son's rental problems properly corrected. Chances are, however, they will ignore it, like everything else after the student's graduation.
