My experience at Carnegie gave me the pleasure of knowing that anybody can recieve a degree in any course without trying. They just hand out certificates without even having a class for it. And as for hands on experience, we once had a teacher who taught this, and the dean himself said that this was a waste of our time. The college is run by students, and students have access to my financial aide information. (Which includes my social security number, my family income, and my loan information.) I definitly agree that it is family oriented because family is all that runs it. I have spoke to other colleges about events that have happened at Carnegie, and they laughed and don't know why it is accredited. If you want a school that will take your money and not teach you the skills that make you marketable in this economy, then by all means, enroll in Carnegie.
