    Preface: For the record, I thoroughly enjoyed my time there, and it's still amongst the best for getting you the technical knowledge and skills needed to make it.


    The class action lawsuit against them finally paid out. As I mentioned a while ago, I didn't want in on this, but in reading the paperwork there was a fixed amount, so whether I signed on or not made no difference to the school. So I signed up

    The offered anywhere from 9-100% of your tuition, depending on how long you attended and what kind of money you made from photography in your 1st year afterwards. I qualified at 16.5%, as I didn't stay 2+ years and did ok

    12,000,000 was to be paid out.
    3400 people qualified for some part of it for a total of 76,500,000
    Lawyers took 4,500,000
    so the 7,500,000 was divided up by %.
    I got 9.1% of the 16.5% :rofl:




    Cliffs: Idiots sue BIP. 12mil is awarded. cocksucking lawyers took 4.5, everyone and their brother also took part so we all got the shaft. Instead of a 200 f/2 I get a mediocre vacation lol

    and because of the lawsuit and corresponding down turn in enrollment, they had to sell their main campus in Montecito, which was the history of the school

    Damn. I liked Brooks even if I didn't learn all that much there. I wonder if it's too late for me to get my share! :mamoru:

    Before I get flamed, I know there is a lot more to it than that.

    I blame the american high schools. They've gotten so bad, that their retard graduates think that just because they're graduates, they're guaranteed some kind of bank, just for existing. Some local fucking charter school doesn't even grade on an A to F scale. they killed the F, so no matter how pathetically shitty a student is, they cannot fail. :ugh:
