PBS' Frontline aired a pretty damning report on the use of GI Bill money being used to fund military veterans' studies at for-profit schools. The main bone of contention is that many soldiers are being accepted at these schools and then later dropped (or they fail) because they aren't ready to study online and the poor hiring rates and salaries of for-profit school grads. Usually I don't put much stock in these reports, but this one was more detailed and dug a little deeper than the usual hatchet job on for-profit schools. One veteran said he had called 30 HR people in a week and asked if they had a choice of two candidates with similar job experience, but one went to a state school and the other had a degree from a for-profit college, which would they hire? In every case, the HR person said they would take the student who graduated from a B&M school. I was leaning heavily toward getting my MS in Marketing from Ashworth after I get my BS in Communications from Excelsior, but I am now rethinking those plans and will likely lean toward an online degree from a well-known B&M school. If HR people are that biased, why create another barrier for myself? You can view the report on the PBS Frontline web page.
