ny urban teachers screw me out of $500

well, i got a letter telling me the fate of the interview i had in the big apple. it turns out i do not meet the credit qualifications to switch to math from history. the problem: i called them three times because i knew texas credits didn't correspond directly with cuny scores. three times i was told that i had no problems, that they checked it out and i could interview. even at the interview i asked again, making sure i wasn't wasting everyone's time (and my money). well, the letter explained that i was not eligible, due to the credits not corresponding. now, at any point they could have cleared this up, but they didn't. and i'm out $500. at least i got a story out of it.
