Nursing School Academic Dismissal Reversed

They reached out right away and got started on my case, I was facing an academic dismissal from PA College of Health Sciences for having to repeat more than two courses per the college policy. I faced adverse challenges during my ASN nursing program and the school was not budging on their policy for me. Joe and his team helped me to appeal the case and once again I was rejected, they then made the school aware I was being represented and the school was not responsive. His team followed up several times before finally getting a response from the school. They miraculously had a change of heart and are reinstating me for my final nursing class so I can graduate. If not for them, I would have to start over and it would be hard to go to another college with a dismissal on my record. None of the last two years of nursing would transfer and I would have to reapply to clinical (a 2-3yr wait) after spending 5 1/2 years and $64k in student loans already. They saved my career and my future!
