"Grad Sues College for $70,000 Because She Can't Find a Job"

From Fox News:

She has given new meaning to a class-action lawsuit.

Trina Thompson gave it the old college try, but couldn't find work. Now she thinks her sheepskin wasn't worth her time, and is suing her alma mater for her money back.

The Monroe College grad wants the $70,000 she spent on tuition because she hasn't found gainful employment since earning her bachelor's degree in April, according to a suit filed in Bronx Supreme Court on July 24.

The 27-year-old alleges the business-oriented Bronx school hasn't lived up to its end of the bargain, and has not done enough to find her a job.

The information-technology student blames Monroe's Office of Career Advancement for not providing her with the leads and career advice it promised.

"They have not tried hard enough to help me," the frustrated Bronx resident wrote about the school in her lawsuit. . . . .

Note the claim from Monroe College web site: Monroe Students Get Jobs Even Before They Graduate!

According to the NY Post, Trina Thompson's mother said: "She's very angry at her situation. She put all her faith in them, and so did I. They're not making an effort"

I have to wonder in Trina Thompson's attempt to sue the college is akin to suing city hall?
