This should not be news for anyone one this site.
Cheap (relatively speaking, 40k vs 200k) for profit education is a complete scam at worst and lazy profiteering that gives your a half-assed education, at best.
As opposed to most real graduate degrees?
Much like Scientology actively seeks out the mentally ill, knowing the sane don’t fall for their gimmick, The for-profit education system is uniquely poised to take advantage of the fact that those of marginal intelligence are conveniently also finding it hard to get into real schools.
Chicken the Did
That's kind of a shitty way to put it. It comes across to me as passive aggressive acceptance that social Darwinism is weeding out the weak as it should.
She probably looked at the different options and saw that this one didn't require an internship; clearly it's a real chin-scratcher as to why you would need an internship before working in a medical field
They actively mislead and lie to people about how they will able to have real degrees when they aren't real degrees. It's a legal scam. It's like that Chinese guy that made fake milk with poison. Only he got executed and these people are still selling education with a fair degree of paint chips and talcum powder.
I'm not going to mock or finger-wag someone who fell for a scam. We all fall for scams, because they are designed to be fallen for and each one has it's target mark. This one takes advantage of people's hopes and/or desperation. Some scams take advantage of greed or fear, others manipulate your goodwill or helpfulness. Sometimes the scam is $40, other times it's $40k.
I've seen people shake their heads at for-profit schools like this and then turn right around and get suckered by the driveway-sealing scam. I know people who can spot well made knockoffs being presented as the real deal, but buy into multi-level marketing schemes.
Credit the con man.
Yeah, good point. I'd never thought of cons/scams quite like that.
I've never gotten taken in by a scam, (that I know of) but it's probably only a matter of time before I do.
pass a law requiring any (un)regulated for-profit educational system to be labeled in advert, signage and documents as a fantasy camp
now try to sell the allure of nutritionist fantasy camp at those prices
