#5056: My alma mater: way to go

"Is that a correspondence school?" Actual question asked by an interviewer. (Worse, it was a guy who'd already been my boss for four months.)

Anyway, yeah: their promises about the employability of graduates rely heavily on people going on to continue the jobs they had while in school. I'm a prime example; I worked my way through college as an on-site PC tech and after graduation I...continued fixing computers. Yeah.

Still don't feel as if I got my money's worth, but it's too late for me: my student loans are paid. *sigh*
