Which is better? I need opinions from current students and post graduates. I'm thinking of going to cosmetology school, but I can't decide which school has the better instructors,financial options, etc.

I attended East Kentucky Beauty College, as for financial options, they don't offer financial aid, but it's a total of $4,100, and you can pay in payments, of $433 your first month, and $333 a month until you pay it off. I enjoyed going there.

It doesn't focus on nails, but you can get your license for nails with hair. You just basically have to teach yourself.

She is not a doppie, which stands to question why you would say that, unless you're a flunky. Couldn't make the cut could you?

EKBC is actually great if you want to learn at your own pace, self motivated, and smoke. I attended there and yes its pretty much teach yourself but in this field you do that anyways. Learning the basics is all you really need for cosmetology, that and board exam knowledge (which you will get at EKBC if nothing else, even after your time is up and that is at no cost), at any beauty school you will get the same result if you apply yourself, in other schools you will not get the after graduation help EKBC gives you. Mrs. Akers is good about teaching you all of that IF you are interested and ask for her assistance. I do think she is fed up with a lot and has just given up because when a friend of mine was there a couple years before my time things were entirely different. As far as a dopey, no she is not nor does she tolerate that, she is well maintained and good to everyone, she doesn't keep supplies like she should but you can take your own to practice on others there or even your family and friends right there in the school if they come to you. I am friends with another girl that attends there now, Mrs. Akers has a Jr instructor that my friend says is a little difficult, she wants things done her way and no other way is the right way, so she thinks. Mrs. Akers is very good with haircuts and will teach you her knowledge but you do have to ask for it, its not offered. If you dont do well with authority this is the school for you! As I said, you will basically get the same results anywhere you go. When I was in school speaking with students from other schools upset me, after graduating, passing my state board, and actually working, we are all on the same level. In speaking to these same people, we do the same work, make the average, and learn more everyday, so its all in your hands and boils down to this, forced motivation vs self motivation.
