This school sucks. They are frauds and do not care about the students. I should have known something was up when it took me less than a week to get in. He told me I would be admitted even before receiving my transcripts from undergrad. They give you these crazy and confusing "assessments" and then tell you you've performed well on all but one or two.if you ask for clarity the professor acts like you just walked in on him taking a crap on the toilet and tries to shoo you away as quickly as you came. He told me to reference his comments in the paper well he only had 4 - one saying the abstract was good, another the paragraph was too short and the other 2 about not needing page numbers for non quoted in text citations. Interestingly enough none of his comments were about the area that I supposedly did the worst in. Flex Path Tutors are probably the biggest joke of them all. I emailed her for more clarity since the professor was completely useless and her response was her restating back to me what I had just said to her. I called and emailed the Flex Path Coach, another joke, about my concerns with the lack of feedback and engagement and how I wasn't enjoying my experience and asking her to please give me some advice to get through this program and lets just say I'm still waiting for her response. I refused to do another ridiculous "assessment". I immediately discontinued my enrollment at this business I mean school. Thankfully it was before my aid hit so(2nd wk of first quarter) I don't have any debt from them!!!! Lastly the so called tutor who was also a tutor for 5 other classes in equally different programs decided to email me 20mins after she received notice that I quit with a "let me help you and pretend to do my job" email saying "sorry I thought you said…" bull crap email like somebody is stupid. Mind you i had already resubmitted the paper i was asking for help on 24hrs ago. So she and the coach basically ignored me and my concerns,its been 3 days now. these people are worthless and this school stinks worst than Satan's not go!!!!!!

November 05, 2010 11:06 AM (EDT)—BOCA RATON, FLORIDA -(BUSINESS WIRE)—Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP (“Robbins Geller”) ( today announced that a class action has been commenced on behalf of an institutional investor in the United States District Court for the District of Minnesota on behalf of purchasers of the common stock of Capella Education Company (“Capella” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: CPLA) between February 16, 2010 and August 13, 2010, inclusive (the “Class Period”), seeking to pursue remedies under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”).

The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants issued materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s business and financial results. Specifically, defendants failed to disclose that: (i) the Company had engaged in improper and deceptive recruiting and financial aid lending practices and, due to the government’s scrutiny into the for-profit education sector, the Company would be unable to continue these practices in the future; (ii) the Company failed to maintain proper internal controls; (iii) many of the Company’s programs were in jeopardy of losing their eligibility for federal financial aid; and (iv) as a result of the foregoing, defendants’ statements regarding the Company’s financial performance and expected earnings were false and misleading and lacked a reasonable basis when made.

On August 13, 2010, after the market closed, the U.S. Department of Education released data on federal student-loan repayment rates at the nation’s colleges and universities. The data showed that repayment rates were 54% at public colleges and 56% at private non-profit institutions, compared to just 36% at for-profit colleges. Specifically, the data showed that the repayment rate at Capella was just 40%. On this news, the price of Capella stock dropped 13.19%, or $9.26 per share, from a closing price of $70.20 per share on August 13, 2010 to a closing price of $60.94 per share on August 16, 2010, the following trading day, on a 438% increase in trading volume.

Plaintiff seeks to recover damages on behalf of all purchasers of Capella common stock during the Class Period (the “Class”). The plaintiff is represented by Robbins Geller, which has expertise in prosecuting investor class actions and extensive experience in actions involving financial fraud.
Robbins Geller, a 180-lawyer firm with offices in San Diego, San Francisco, New York, Boca Raton, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and Atlanta, is active in major cases pending in federal and state courts throughout the United States and has taken a leading role in many important actions on behalf of defrauded investors, consumers, and companies, as well as victims of human rights violations.
