Le Cordon Bleu
Le Cordon Bleu Orlando Career Entertainment Corporation Liars Stealing Orlando, Florida
13th of Jul, 2011 by User673507
I started going to Le Cordon Bleu because I was led to believe it was a good school at the top of it's class. WOW - were they LIARS. First of all they have a recruitment office which leads you to believe only the best will be selected for their school, and this is a total lie. Everyone who has access to financial aid money gets in. The school is ridiculously expensive so if you have full ride of pell and stafford loans like I do... those don't even cover all the tuition. So I ended up paying 4000+ for the first semester with my loans and STILL had to pay them 100$ out of pocket for something that they called a grant. (Don't ask me.. none of it makes sense). Anyway - I finished the 1st semester with flying colors. Then.. I got sick and had to be in the hospital for about a week, and after that we had a family emergency. Le Cordon Bleu told us that we could take a registered Leave Of Absence and just restart the same semester in the next round of classes. So thats what I did, except.. the day before I went back they told me the Associates degree program was no longer available and I would have to go for the diploma. I said.. "Fine." because it was 20,000$ cheaper. So the day before we went back they called us on the way to school and told us unless we had 8000$ to give them that we couldn't come back to school for the LESS EXPENSIVE program. We were like WTF ? They told us that because of our LOA our financial aid from the government came in, and then got sent back to them so we would have to pay for our classes up front from then on. None of this made any sense to me or my roomate who also attended there. After that we were like F-U and decided to transfer to our local Community College for their culinary program. Now LCB is telling us instead of 8000$ we owe them 4000$ and some change and they are holding our transcripts until we pay them, even though the government has already paid them. This organization is absolutely filled with CRIMINALS. They aren't even a school.. they're a corporation who does not care about it's students or education at all. We have no idea when we will be able to go back to school because of it all. If I had known that the 3 years I put into college would all go down the drain because I spent 6 weeks at LCB I would have told them to go F themselves to begin with. Please don't EVER EVER EVER go to this school unless you wanted to be completely screwed over and not even be able to get anything except for a minimum wage job IF you do get out there with transcripts or a diploma.
