A little secret – this is virtually every college and university’s nightmare: they recruit potential students, make decisions about those individual’s lives (with or without their participation), convince them to apply, register and enroll…and the student doesn’t show up. No ass in the seat. Nobody in the bed. No money from the government, banks or the student. This is why the www.whatsbestforme.com platform is so important – it puts the prospective student (beginning or returning) on equal footing with the schools from day one.

How can this be a surprise when two large for-profits – ITT and Corinthian – close down? Sure, there have been a few small private colleges, almost all nonprofits, close or merge, but the bulk of the “missing” schools are accounted for with ITT and Corinthian closings. And in my opinion two things have happened as a result, one good and one bad. The good thing that has happened is the worst of the bad guys In higher-ed are not around anymore to sully those who follow the rules and behave ethically and morally. The bad thing is that thousands of students suffered as did blameless employees of the closed schools.

What’s the big news here? Seems almost everyone regrets one thing or another about their life, their job, and the choices they made regarding their education. A Harris Interactive survey determined 45% of Americans like their jobs but 33% feel they are at a dead end in their career and 21% are eager to change jobs. Other surveys – Googled just now by me – show that people everywhere are unhappy with their jobs, including 55% in the U.K., 50% in Canada and a whopping 50% in the USA. So…none of these regrets or unhappiness with a job or career path is a surprise. Maybe this will help.
