I attended westwood college and graduated in 2010 and received my bachelors degree in criminal justice. at the time i was there we were told that we were accredited and we will be fine. i was paying loans even when i was attending westwood. when i started getting payment books to payback the loans and saw the high monthly payments i went to the financial aid in the 5th floor, one of the finalcial aid lady told me to call them (sallie mae) and not bring it to them. they told me my issue was with the lender (sallie Mae) not westwood. the proffessors where all Chicago/illinois state cops and as students we asked them if its true about westwood college being a ripoff, they said no youll be fine! now im here at 28 years old with a worthless degree and over 85 thousand dollars in debt. i dont know what to do. i tried to sue them but my lawyer told me it was worthless… the only thing ill get from the lawsuit is slapping westwood on the wrist. to all looking for a school to go please avoid westwood college ohare campus or any westwood campuses around the chicago land area. lisa madigan filed a lawsuit against westwood college and i never heard anything from that. if any student attended westwood college in illinois and are in the same situation as me you not the only one. i dont know what to anymore… the loans i acquired from westwood is my mortage my car loan, all the bad things that keep u down. please seriously avoid this school everyday i gotta wake up with a dozen missed calls from sallie mae and ECMC its sad but true. any help is welcome. .
