| Yeah, this isn't a very good school if you need your degree quickly unless you have tons of cash.|
This is a For-Profit college through and through, and you can tell by the quality of the course work and professors.
I'd personally stay far, far away from this school if you want a real education. They cut programs and raise tuition yearly, and the "professors" (a term which I use loosely) know less about what they're teaching than you do.
The Chicago campus recently cut ties with its Admin assistant and computer majors having only 3-4 people per-class in these programs, while the Bridgeview campus has nuked its entire computer lab and now all 1000+ students are forced to share one small library with less than 20 computers total. I will say that Chicago campus is the way to go if you must try it out do to their huge computer lab area and library.
Overall, going to this school is by far the stupidest thing I've ever done in my life, and if you sign up and stay for too long, it'll probably be yours too.
My advice; Go to your local community college. It'll be much cheaper and you'll have a staff that 1000x more knowledgeable and it won't cost you nearly $20,000 when you're not even half done.

| I have attended both a smaller college and large university before receiving my Bachelor's Degree. I was looking to Northwestern Business College to receive my Paralegal Certificate and unfortunately it was a big mistake. Just as commented in other reviews this school is too expensive for the education that you receive. I was promised that the paralegal program would be offered on Saturdays and I would be able to complete this certificate in 1 year. Halfway through the program I was advised by the staff that they will no longer offer Saturdays at Naperville or Bridgeview. I am extremely disappointed for wasting my time and money at this school. I have contacted the head of the student advisor as well as the head of the department about this problem. I am unable to receive any response from them as to any alternatives. At one point I was told that I could possibly take the remaining classes independent study, but the tuition would cost the same. I can't see paying the same amount of money for teaching myself and meeting with an instructor a few times. I too am still paying on this student loan that is not worth anything. To top it all off the advisor at the school continues to call me every new term to see if I want to come back. When I reiterate what the problem is they tell me who to call. They never seek out the answers to my questions and call me back. I have asked them to stop calling me and was told they will try but cannot guarantee I will not be called by someone else within the school. This is ridiculous the school is not that big! |
