    University of Phoenix does not count as "going to college".

    Its funny in coporate america when these idiots apply for a job, like they know what its like to sweat out a final that you have crammed for all semester and finish in 60 minutes.

    • In no defense of UOP but they have finals and they are no joke. I had to go through the Cisco Network Certification through UOP and I was actually taken by surprise on the level of difficulty the final was. Apparently, every institution accredited by the HLC must use the same curriculum and texts. I called bs on this until I found a syllabus online for Stanford and it was nearly identical to the UOP program. Now to see that Stanford is peddling the same material, I almost feel you are simply buying a brand name these days when it comes to degrees. I think Moody's has discovered the same thing and this is why the lowered guidance on all institutions this week.
