    At first glance, this looks like just another frivolous lawsuit. However, there is this:

    What did the school promise?

    Maybe they promised to remove her "stupid gene" that Chanel referred to.

    Good point, but every school has a career placement office. Did she go there? Did she schedule an appointment with a counselor? It sounds like she wanted them to come to her and offer a job. I don't think that "promise" was a money-back guarantee.

    She prob. can't find a job because of this little recession going on. Or perhaps because she's an asshole. I am leaning toward the latter. Who would hire her now? They'd be afraid she'd sue them if it rains during her vacation time. :lol:

    So the kid doesn't have a job and is in debt w/loans to the tune of $70,000 . . . and then adds to that debt by hiring a lawyer to sue the school? Kind of like overspending, running into problems because of that, then overspending even more to try and fix it.

    On a more serious note,
    I work in IT for a Fortune 500 company and I have no formal education in IT and neither do many of my co-workers. A college degree opens doors, it doesn't guarantee a job.
    My ex-father-in-law was a nuclear engineer for GE, but guess what, when he went to college, nuclear engineering wasn't something you could get a degree in, his degree was in mechanical engineering.
    Smart people make things happen, stupid people blame others for their failure.

    Holy crap, when you say it that way, she sounds like she will have a great career as a politician.

    What a great idea! I was trying to figure out who to sue, and I hadn't thought of suing my college.

    I could just say that I'm not earning as much as I want, and that is because of the college.

    Perhaps she's suffering from "Entitlement/Victim Delusion Syndrome". She should sue the "self esteem" advocates at her elementary school.

    BTW - I'm pretty sure that career centers will assist alumni and recent grads as well. She graduated in April? Something smells awfully fishy to me.
