    Not forgotten CIEE

    Due to laws enacted in the 1960's by the Mississippi state legislature regulating higher education, it is not possible for a degree mill to move into the state of Mississippi and set up a worthless and fraudulent operation. CIEE has been established and in operation of over 50 years, offering a quality and recognized instructional program.

    Offered by:


    Is the above statement correct?

    This school is 60 years old and in my opinion legitimate.
    To bad that it is not accredited by recognized agency.
    CCU was at one point accredited by the same agency.

    I have no dout that they offer good education but for the cost one can go to a school with recognized accreditation.

    I looked at Cook's once. Although they say it's an engineering program, I thought it looked a lot more like World College's BEET or Grantham's BSET than a BSEE.

    That being so, I'd go with either of these DETC programs before I'd go with Cook's.

    Actually, the only purely D/L B.S engineering program I'd consider for a split second is California National (DETC) and I'd only go that route if it was absolutely impossible to complete an ABET program.

    Weirdly, KW grads seem to be able to sell their BS Engineering diplomas with reasonable frequency. Even so, I'd avoid that school.

    This school has been around for a long time. Accredited by the legitimate-but-substandard-and unrecognized NAPNSC, it seems to offer a serious education. Whether or not that education is up to snuff is difficult to say--their "accreditation" doesn't help.

    Bear used to report that when he made inquiries to this school, they soon followed up with an offer to join a dating service. I suspect those days are long gone, though.:)

    Dilbert cartoonist Scott Adams says that engineers have a hard time getting dates but are easily married (presumably once the girl is done with her wild oats). Maybe Cook's saw a social need! :D

    Rodney Dangerfield did a similar bit. Girls date Vinnie for a few years, but marry Irving because he's a good provider.

    Engineers don't earn much compared to many other professions. But they're easily married because a would-be spouse knows that engineers don't have the audacity to fool around.

    Now, what about lawyers? ...

    Both of my post Bar exam wives, one ex and the present spousal unit, are lawyers.

    What's an "exam wife"?

    You should have married an engineer. Then you'd know she'd not have the chutzpah to cheat -- and she could fix things around the house. Probably no good at exams though.

    But no engineer would be dumb enough to marry ME!

    Young Nosborne,

    Spousal unit? Interesting choice of words. Gee I really hear the words of love there. :) lol. What is her speciality ?( in law, that is) That would be neat if you two had two seperate cases and had to square off against each other in court. Or maybe not.

    It's actually illegal. No Spencer Tracey/Katherine Hepburn stuff is allowed.

    She is a Child Support attorney for the State of New Mexico.

    What about
    the Mississippi state legislature regulating higher education.
