    Hi San Fran - I am still here. I have decided to believe that a sale will indeed take place soon, and the news will be good for shareholders. Hope you are doing well, and good luck to you

  • University of Chicago Acts to Improve Access for Lower-Income Students

    By RICHARD PÉREZ-PEÑA
    October 1, 2014

    With elite colleges under growing pressure to enroll more low-income students, the University of Chicago is taking a series of rare steps to make applying faster, simpler and cheaper, and to make studying there more affordable.

    The package of measures, to be announced Wednesday, includes several that are highly unusual, like eliminating the expectation that low- and middle-income students take jobs during the academic year, guaranteeing them paid summer internships after their first year in college and providing them career counseling beginning in that first year.

    “This is all part of a strategy to create a common and equal platform for all students,” for access to the university and “to be successful once they’re here,” said John W. Boyer, the dean of the undergraduate college.

    The effort, to be phased in over five years, will mean significantly more spending on some students, and even more costs if the university succeeds in raising the number of low-income students. Mr. Boyer said he could not cite an overall price, but noted that one goal of the university’s coming five-year fund-raising campaign was to raise $150 million to $200 million for financial aid.

    The share of low-income students at elite colleges has barely changed in decades, and the University of Chicago has had less economic diversity than most. The widening gap between rich and poor, and increasing competition for admission to top colleges, contribute to concerns that they fuel inequality rather than social mobility.

  • California community colleges to offer baccalaureate degrees
    Reuters
    By Sharon Bernstein September 29, 2014 12:24 PM

    SACRAMENTO Calif. (Reuters) - California's two-year colleges would be able to offer baccalaureate degrees under a law signed by Democratic Governor Jerry Brown, who also rejected extra funding for the state's strapped university systems.

    The law, a pilot program approved Sunday by Brown along with other education-related measures, would allow 15 community colleges to expand programs in job-related fields such as automobile mechanics and dental hygiene to four-year bachelor's degrees from two-year associate's degrees.

    The change is a response to employer concerns that workers in numerous technical fields need to be better educated. State Senator Marty Block, a Democrat from San Diego, called the measure a "game-changer" in a state where many students cannot afford tuition at four-year universities.

    In another closely watched measure, the governor on Saturday used his line-item veto on a budget provision that would have increased funding for the state's two university systems by $100 million.

    The funds, to shore up aging infrastructure at the universities, had originally been included in a budget deal with the legislature but only if tax revenues came in higher than expected.

    When property taxes did not exceed expectations, the legislature appropriated the money anyway, prompting a rebuke from Brown, who has steered a fiscally moderate course since taking office in 2011 amid ongoing financial troubles for the state.

    "We are nearly one quarter into the fiscal year now and we

    should not commit additional general fund monies of this magnitude when we are facing unanticipated costs such as fighting the state's extreme wildfires," he said.

    State Assembly Speaker Toni Atkins, a Democrat from San Diego, said she was disappointed by the governor's veto and argued that the state could afford the appropriati

    The WYOTECH cites listed for sale on the website are: Fremont, Laramie, Blairsville, Long Beach, and Daytona Beach. Which one are you referring to? And, do you have a link for this news? Thanks in advance.

  • Going out with a bang. Still foolishly believing in a purchase announcement to be made in the next few weeks. Hoping for a miracle.

  • Read rumors that it sold. Apparently it's not significant, as there is no press release, or news articles anywhere that I can find.

    I know that hope is stupid, but I do truly hope that the successful sale of significant assets causes the value of our shares to climb above $0.50 or more.

    There are now 1151 Job Openings listed on the Corinthian Colleges website for positions located all over the states and Canada, many if not most of which are full time. This number is actually up from 1147 job openings, as seen on the website 9/24/14. I know that this is a stupid observation, but besides the posting of SEC filings, it is one of the only pieces of evidence that something is being updated on the website that is directly related to operations. Someone or someones, unless in complete denial, believe that many of these campuses will continue to operate under some ownership, just unknown at this time by the populous.

  • If I were some of the major shareholders, then I would want to know what is going on. Do you think that they are allowed to know, or are legally provided with more inside information regarding the progress of these sales? Just curious.

  • Not sure I can last another day of torture. Some days are better than others. Today is definitely low.

    Thanks - don't know how much longer I can keep the truth from my family. Not only am I a financial loser, but I'm also a liar. Will try to keep the faith that a company worth hundreds of millions of dollars one day is not likely to be completely worthless the next day. Something has to be worth something, at least I hope. (Investor666, I know that the temptation to get attention is great for you, but please try to refrain from touching this, and touch something else. Ya know, no means no, and all that jazz. Thanks, Quick.)

    There are now 1153 Job Openings listed on the Corinthian Colleges website for positions located all over the states and Canada, many if not most of which are full time. This number is actually up from 1151 job openings, as seen on the website 10/5/14. Again, just a small observation, but at least it shows that something is still being updated, and that some type of hiring must be in progress, with the idea that certain schools will continue to operate for someone. Of course, someone could just be having fun adding and deleting openings, no idea.

    There are now 1160 Job Openings listed on the Corinthian Colleges website for positions located all over the states and Canada, many if not most of which are full time. This number is actually up from 1153 job openings a few hours ago. I'm thinking of applying for one of these jobs to earn back the money I've lost on my investment here.

    Received a Very Kind Email from COCO Today

    I've sent a few email questions to Ms. Dunlap over the past few weeks, but she no longer answers them. I'd like to think that she isn't answering because there is a directive to keep quite so as not to accidentally leak out information about the big, lucrative pending massive school sale; however, the fact that I'm not even getting a standard robotic response is disturbing.

    Shareholder question

    I asked a similar question and was laughed at. This whole thing seems way to hush hush, and it really doesn't make sense to me that shareholders would have no knowledge of what company is working on regarding their/our investment. We are owners after all.

    XXXXX -

    It is unclear whether shareholders will need to vote on the sales transactions. It depends on sales price and other factors at the time of sale. We will notify shareholders if our legal counsel determines that obtaining shareholder approval is required.

    And relative to your previous email, we did sell QuickStart, for $2.7 million.

    Short interest 8/15/14

    Hi Beta - 9/30/14 Short Interest went up from 9/15/14, from 22,920,572 to 22,975,049. What are your thoughts?

  • Since I'm so prone to making mistakes, in this case monumental, I must find a method of suicide that guarantees I'm not still alive, simply with severe impairments, or a vegetable that my family has to legally deal with, etc. Thinking about injecting myself with heavy doses of insulin.
