When Trina Thompson of New York was unable to find a suitable job following graduation from Monroe College, she filed a $72,000 case in 2009 against her Alma Mater. Thompson, who graduated with a 2.7 GPA, claimed the colleges career services department didnt provide sufficient help with her job search and gave preferential treatment to students with excellent grades. She sought to regain the $70,000 she had spent on tuition for her bachelors degree in information technology plus an extra $2,000 for the stress caused during her three-month job search.
