    Of course college prepares you for that... Haven't you ever run away from a frat party?

    Most of these schools are only good for learning to cut hair. Other then that they are extremely overpriced to get nothing in return. Local community colleges are cheaper and better.

    There is a big debate over the regional accreditation vs.national accreditation. Allot of National schools do not transfer over to regional accredited schools. Most (not all) internet schools are National accreditated.

    Not true....national accreditation is still somewhat rare in higher education. All the well known online programs (University of Phoenix, Northcentral University, American Military University, etc.) are regionally accredited.

    Negative....regional accreditation is the gold standard. Harvard is regionally accredited through the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Stanford is regionally accredited by the Western Association, etc.

    It's not.

    The majority of legitimate distance learning institutions are regionally accredited; there are a handful that are nationally accredited, but they're very much in the minority, both in numbers and in number of students.

    Popular distance learning schools;

    Thomas Edison State College - regionally accredited

    Excelsior College - regionally accredited

    Charter Oak State College - regionally accredited

    University of Phoenix - regionally accredited

    Northcentral University - regionally accredited

    Walden University - regionally accredited

    Union Institute & University - regionally accredited

    I could go on for pages and pages, but I think you get the idea. I have a part-time gig that requires I stay on top of these things, and it's a subject I know inside and out, trust me.

    Ok, you have me. But there are many more that are only DETC. They are not that well known, but willing to take your money. Just to name a few.
    American Health Science University
    American Sentinel University
    Andrew Jackson University
    Ashworth College
    Aspen University
    California Coast University
    California National University for Advanced Studies
    Columbia Southern University
    Grantham University
    Henley-Putnam University

    You roll the dice when you earn a DETC-accredited degree...some places will accept them, while many do not. The safest bet is to go with a school that's regionally accredited....acceptance and transfer credit is nearly universal.

    Walden is a proprietary (for profit) school, and those tend to have very high tuition....as a trade-off, they also tend to have very good student support, as they want you to stay enrolled in order to make more money.

    Since the Quinn Bill is probably going to disappear (thanks to Cop hating politicians who would rather divert the money to entitlement programs), why not just go to the cheapest/easiest school to get your degree? If you are looking for a degree for a resume, I don't think the school really makes a huge difference (in LE). Doesn't Chief Bratton of the LAPD have a bachelors from Boston State College (which later merged w/ UMASS)? If you are guaranteed Quinn, go to a Quinn school. If you work outside of MA I don't think it really matters where you went, just that you got a CJ degree etc........

    Why bother getting a degree at all? Let the state get what they pay for.

    GED and a driver's license.....

    Bratton got his Bachelors it as part of an early 70's program where BPD would actually pay for most if not all of the tuition and fees; this was of course long before Boston had Quinn. Now of course, the campus is now UMass-Boston, which is nothing to scoff at.

    Either way, a very well known Curry professor graduated from Boston State and went on to get her doctorate at Brown, so I really don't agree with your implication the Boston State was just a "so-so" school.

    Hesser College, ITT (which is buying Daniel Webster College), University of Phoenix, and the like are also for-profit businesses. The tuition there is higher than the tuition at the community colleges.

    In addition to being more affordable, many of the community colleges have deeper roots in the community, which may offer better networking opportunities.

    I like the moron "Officer" with his greased back hair using cheapo handcuffs and can't even handcuff the guy. Yep, what a great school to help with your future in LE. WOW

    Don't waste your time and money on schools which run all those ads which obviously appeal to whackers. They want one thing...your money. If you cannot afford the time or money to go to a university like Northeastern, U-Mass Lowell, etc where you spend four years full time or more at night in classrooms then do go to community colleges like New Hampshire Tech, Northern Essex etc. where they have people with full credentials, experience and contacts. Then you can transfer into a 4 year school. As for Boston State the old campus that was absorbed by UMass Boston offered some dynamite graduate courses many years ago. While the Quinn Bill is under fire many communities will still pay for your degrees, even several N.H. departments will do this. Some places will not hire you unless you have a degree. I believe this is going to become more the story in progressive areas, unlike the regressive climate that has blown up in Massachusetts.

    Yes, one can tell the excellent education you're receiving from your grammar skills.

    Did Hesser not teach you that you always capitalize the first word of a new sentence, and also words like Hesser?
