World Education Services profits from the desperate need of foreigners to have their college transcripts converted to a format acceptable to United States Universities and Colleges.
My wife earned her college degree in Dubai long before we were married. She had always aspired to teach languages at the university level.
She soon discovered that the format of her transcripts was not compatible with what was required for application and admission to Texas A&M College Station.
WES charged us over $200 to convert transcripts to format required by AggieLand registrar. Price for this service seemed too high, but we had no choice.
WES took their sweet time(over a month) to send converted transcripts to A&M.
She was accepted, but for reasons beyond our control, did not enroll. We settled in another part of the U.S. where she applied at three other junior/community colleges.
She could not use the expensive copy of transcripts that she had from A&M application and was forced to pay $50 dollars per request for duplicate transcripts which totaled 150 bucks!
WES somehow owns her transcripts after being paid a lot of money to convert them and compute GPA. We believe their actions are monopolistic and constitute price gouging.
If you share the point of view that their practices are unfair, please comment. I would also like to know how the great country of Canada could possibly endorse the unethical actions of this company.
Oh, did I mention they did not respond to snail mail at their PO Box 5087, Bowling Green Station,NYC address?
