How convenient! She eats the entire meal (ie she graduated) before complaining to the waitress that the food was no good.

More succinctly, these people are crooks, and the shame is they've been allowed to get away with it this long.

And if you REALLY want to look at the full range of dubious educational investments, I'd be interested in how many Capital and Ohio Northern and Akron law school graduates have six figure loan debt and little to show for it in the way of income.

Much higher education in this country is a racket -- butts in seats paying professors big salaries and funded by loans that will be a millstone around graduates' necks.

She was told the credits would transfer.

Interesting how this atrical talks about the industry as a whole but only seems to to slam Corinthian. This school does teach barbers, and has not misslead students. This salt lake student is not a documented case and unfortunatly many people from both public and private schools are haveing issues finding jobs. As for credits accepted--people should do there homework as this can vary regardless of schools involved.

funny when the economy slows stupid people are quick to point fingers. Cali does a horrible job putting things into percpective, always. I paid top dollar for an education that I cannot use right now and guess what.......I AM THE ONE TO BLAME FOR IT! I have sucked it up and moved on and any one of these loosers that is crying about this would have gotten themselves in debt somehow anyways. At least now they have an education

One more thing....I've looked through Corinthian in and out and the only reason I'm reading this article is because I've just put tons of my money into COCO stock.
Watch this school thrive now from these prices it has been beaten down to. A couple people may have been treated unfairly but who hasen't? It's always the lazy ones that complain
