    Why is this forum still open?

    Why not replace this forum with one that has web sites of accredited DL institutions (domestic and foreign)- would be helpful to people who are inquiring about such matters?

    Oh, we may archive it one of these days. But it is a delightful read to see all of the wacky stuff that Sheila and Enrique did to try to shore up their less-than-wonderful institution...

    It is also a very good guide to show the very thin line between out right fraud and the state-approved schools. Consider the relative difference between MIGS and some of the other programs. If you look at the information from 2 years ago, what was the "preceived" (at that time) difference between MIGS and KWU or similar.

    A little less greed and a little more honest work and the story could have turned out very different.

    Starting up a new private school is very difficult. I likened it to climbing up a very steep slope. If there is a slip then the institution slips into degree mill land. It appeared to me that MIGS could have been a very serious attempt at starting a real distance learning college. MIGS stumbled and slipped into degree mill land.

    For what it's worth I agree that the MIGS forum is long passed its 'use-by' date and serves absolutely no useful purpose. Except perhaps to remind some Senior Members that they were once enrolled with MIGS.:)

    Why don't the people who are doing the most complaining about this particular forum (MIGS) rush off and start one of their own, on whatever topics happen to interest them?

    I understand the Liberian Ministry of Education is flexible on academic rigor :D
