    Add them to the list. VA isn't messing around, I think they are taking serious issue with the "for profit" thing. It's funny to me that it has nothing to do with NA vs RA, which is what you might expect. This is the 3rd one I've seen since I've been paying attention, which admittedly hasn't been too long, but put this in the category of things that make you go hummmm.

    With so many DL choices for using one's VA, I'm not surprised the VA is taking a tough stance in the face of a few bad characters. There's no downside to them "de-listing" a school unnecessarily. It's not like the vet will struggle with finding other choices. This is not good for the for-profit industry in general.

    and imo, I think we'll see some SERIOUS flexing of VA muscle here. This is guaranteed tuition dollars for schools, NA and RA alike, and colleges know that- they want these guys/gals paying tuition. VA also did a smart thing picking big players- it was UoP last fall (though they've been "reinstated" since then) and someone else big over the winter, the name escapes me.... but I feel like they just realized that they have a lot of power here. Schools are about to bow down.
