    Good. I wish the Feds and all the states would clamp down on these "schools."

    'Bout time! I have has suspicions about each one of these schools (except Phoenix) for a long time. I'm not upset that they are for profit schools, it's how they take advantage of people that is upsetting.

    The neighbor kid came down to my house the other day, asking me questions about college since he's getting to that age. Seems one of the for profits schools paid a visit to his school (and i forget who it was now). Anyway, he's interested in forensic science and the school rep told him that forensic scientists make $500,000 per year fresh out of college......he was really upset when I showed him what they really make, what really goes on and stuff. I can't believe the amount of lies they handed these kids.
