Went to mccann today and spoke to some one. Ill get an assiocates degree in business. Ill be taking electronic health records. Itll take me about 18-21 months. Itll cost 30g. And have about 15 in loans to pay back because ill have grants. While a student there they will help we get a part time job and after they help build a Proflio and your resume.

Maybe because they're more interested in your money than the quality of what they're teaching?

They lack the accreditation to switch schools if you need to. They are expensive.

Mostly, because they cost a LOT more than a better education would cost at virtually any state university.

If you needed/wanted to switch schools would the credits transfer?

Like all businesses, it depends on how it is being run.  If they are expecting you to shell out more for an education, it should be worth it.  If they are milking for every penny ($300 to walk a copy of a form down a hallway fees?) and the education you recieve doesn't give you any edge, it isn't going to be worth it.
