when i was in Abby i applied to go to school at a bunch of other colleges. I went through the whole research "what i want to be when i grow up" thing, looked into schools and what courses i would have to take and just go from there.
I ended up at the CDI on the friggin other side of town. The one close to the above the underground clothing place. I asked about some courses there and how everything works. I made up a list of questions that i would need answers for and i did the placement exam and they said that i passed, i picked a course which i wasn't entirely sure about, did the whole tour thing, and a few days went by and they had my contract ready to sign, all the student loan papers ready and i denied them right off the bat.
At the time CDI had some kind of network admin course or something like that for like $28,000. I don't know the exact price but there was no way in hell i was going to get a loan that high just for school. I probably would have failed the course in the first place because at the time i didn't have much interest in computer network stuff...CDI is also non-accredited..
accredited- To recognize (an institution of learning) as maintaining those standards requisite for its graduates to gain admission to other reputable institutions of higher learning or to achieve credentials for professional practice.
next time if someone is looking into education, be sure to do some research through multiple schools, not just ones that you see commercials for or heard of off the bat. It might help you from making a crappy decision. Asking questions and getting answers are very important.
just so you know...
