AUTHOR UNCOVERS NATIONWIDE STEM SCHOLARSHIP SCAM
Father and son college tours lead to a sanity-saving book for all STEM students
11/1/2017. Cherry Hill, New Jersey.
When Leon Roomberg started touring universities with his high school age sons, he was startled by inconsistencies in the college presentations. What started as note taking and web searching expanded into a six-year research adventure as he uncovered a nationwide scandal where colleges are awarding millions of dollars in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math,) student scholarships they have no intention of ever paying. He continued his research and published "The STEM Student Survival Guide," to provide STEM students and their families with strategies and tactics to "successfully graduate with their finances and sanity intact."
According to Roomberg, “college recruiters have fallen into a trap where they rationalize an unethical practice because they see their competitors doing the same thing. They are awarding millions of dollars in STEM scholarships they have no intention of ever paying. This includes some of the most reputable and highly rated colleges in the country. The scholarships are cancelled the moment a student has a semester with less than a 3.0 grade point average. Meanwhile, the teachers are curving the grades of the majority of STEM students well below that point. As a result, about half of all STEM students fail out of their major, and many fail out of college completely, with only debt and damaged self-esteem to show for their college experience. The book provides STEM students with specific recommendations to ensure their success including radically different approaches to course scheduling, proactive tutoring, and even in-class behavior.
