I used my GI Bill money (what little I had, as I was medically discharged very early in my contract) to attend this "school", my mistake. I should have taken my Ssgt's advice and been and informed consumer. I, at the time, did not know the difference between a Nationally accredited school vs a Regionally accredited school. There is a HUGE difference in the two, needless to say with the 'degree' that I 'earned' with FTC I am not in the healthcare field as was my intention. I was poorly trained and unable to find a job with said degree. One is required to do an externship at the end of the course to get practical application of the skill set that is learned over the 18 months that you are enrolled there. It's hard to find a site for externship due to the poor reputation of FTC in the community. I wasted my entire GI Bill and am still paying school loans off for a degree that I can't use. I can't transfer the credits to a 'real' (Regionally accredited) school. Please do not make the same mistakes I did, be an informed consumer. Make sure that the school you intend to attend is REGIONALLY accredited.
