I always laugh when people say "$30,000 ... sucking poor people dry". Come on. When I signed up, they told me how much it cost. Didn't they tell you too?? That's a lot of money, yes, but that is what education costs!!! Go to any private college and ask and the tuition is that or HIGHER for all of them. The only "cheap" tuition is at community college which is all paid for by government money ANYWAY. So whether you go here, or there, you're still paying for it no matter what.
What I can say for sure is that when I started school, I had no job. Now that I've graduated, I have a job that I love. It is an amazing experience for me to actually enjoy going to work. That's something I never thought I would have in my life. The teachers at STC really wanted me to succeed.
I believe the key to finishing any school is to want to finish. Everyone has problems along the way -- you just have to want to finish. If the teachers see you strugling, they'll help you because they know you want to finish too. If you want it, you can earn your degree at STC. It's as simple as that.
