    That's assuming one's broker could readily find 51% available for sale. Could present difficulties. Then again, a takeover bid could be launched with less in hand. Much less could likely still get you board representation...

    Hmmm -- the speculation continues... :smile:

    I definitely don't expect to see buzzards circling any time soon. I expect Aspen to survive... very resourceful school!

    Yes I do think they'll find a way; as for the 51% available you could just get someone to buy some shares then have another party put on a bearhug for the other shareholder to claim against the board.... but personally don't buy into their current Market Cap.

    New book by the aspen pres?

    I recently saw this article and wonder if B&M will reduce costs? A former co worker of mind used to say the college of the future is a laundry-mat with Wifi where meet up for a few hours. With Mooc's and cheaper online she is probably right:

    Also read the new book written by the president of Aspen College as available on amazon. He lays out his opinion of the market and what is stated as the Aspen plan for public appeal.

    Now he has had great successes at other companies and I wish him well for the success of Aspen. Given the high amount of Capital that has been raised and the cost structure of the operations I hope the internal parts of his plan are the better parts yet to come.

    This - to me - is the scariest part of Michael Mathews' scenario:

    "Worse yet, about 79 percent of students from the lowest income households will never graduate..."

    Yes - 79% of the poorest student-debtors won't graduate - plus they'll be paying back student loans forever. Yeow! Half the schools will have to be turned into debtors' prisons!

    Yep. I still owe on my loans from North Carolina Wesleyan College. That was 22 years ago. Sigh. I agree.

    I am student in my second year of rhe MSN program. The teachers and curriculum have been wonderful. I am an older student and need flexibility as well as encouragement along the way. A short while ago I did have a problem with something that would have deterred my educational plans and Dr. Cheri St. Arnold took the matter in her own hands and solved all of the issues at hand. She personally called me several times and I truly believe it is because she cares for me as a nursing student (and my success) and that she has a heart for nursing. This to me is the value test. Online studies affords us with the benefits of flexibility and autonomy. However, there are frustrations that go along with that such as having to email about important administrative issues that need timely and thoughtful answers and responses. Dr. Afnold proved that even in online schools- the personal touch still is the bottom line. Thank You, Dr. Cheri Arnold
