yrs ago – Started BellMar Dec 7th 1988, I went part time evenings. Mr G and his wife I think her name was Hilda were nice people but I too think they were out for the money. 3/4 of the way through my schooling I hurt my back and was left unble to walk let alone stand...I went in with letters from my Doctor for a leave of absence...which I ended up not able to go back....A yr later I started getting loan papers in the mail for repayment of school loans that were taken out after I had to quit, that I DID NOT take out these loans! From what I understand I am not the only one this happened too. Such a shame I had thought of this being a fantastic school till this happened. I do know 1 girl had to pay the loans, mine were "forgiven" as I am 100% disabled with back problems and another person started a suit against the school...never heard what happened though.
The teacher I had Ms Dianne was very kind and taught me a lot...Shortly after I quit I did hear things for the school were going down hill...Haven't heard nothing on the school for several years now...it isn't even on facebook and I thought everyone was on FB LOL
Bell Mar's response – Bell Mar has been around and accredited for nearly 26 years. You can't be a scam/diploma mill and be around that long. You won't be accredited or eligible for US Dept of Education financial aid, as Bel Mar is, for long if you truly are a scam school.
Bell Mar's owners have, in the last couple years experienced the deleterious effects of aging we may all experience. Subsequently, in the last couple of years the school has not be run as well as it had in the past.
Bell Mar is now open under new management (as of 6/9/10) and I invite any recent graduate with complaints to return and discuss them with me. We will do our best to correct any deficiencies in your education.
I also invite any prospective students to come in and see how we are doing at 5717 W, Cernak Rd, Cicero Il 60804.
