IME Ultrasound student in San Jose, California said: I attended IME in Oct,2009 ultrasound program and I did not graduate. I was still attending school when it closed down feb 16, 2012. I received a letter from BPPE (STRF) and i was denied in my claim. STRF only accepting students claim if you started the program 2010. I was told by BPPE I was going to receive my claim. Now I am not sure what to do. My classmates are in same situation. I was robbed No education , No Job, and stuck with huge loan... HELP!!!!!
Likewise, I graduated from the LVN program in Oct. of 2011,and got denied by the Board of Nursing by not having the proper paperwork.
Ever since my denial notice, I have been trying to get the right paperwork from the Vethodys, and for some reason they will NOT respond.
Furthermore, I have been Denied the cancellation of my student loans and I did fill out the STRF application back in Aug. of last year. As of today's date, I have NOT heard back from BPPE. Which, I don't even know if I qualify for that also since I graduated outside of the 60 days of the closing of the school.
Now, there is a class action suit against IME and you can look up the court details at imelawsuit.com. However, from my understanding the Vethodys are more then likely are going to file for chap 7 bankruptcy.
I wish I had better info but, personally I think us students are going to get screwed, out of all the money we spent attending this school.
