The sad truth...

When Nick started the Graphics design program at Perry Tech He was led to believe the placement rate is 95%.

He has been going through this program for a year now and has found out that the placement rate is really about 7%. They were able to say 95% because people were made to acquire a master business licence to start their own business; thus "having" a job. Not all of the students that got their business license actually started their business.

Also as you have probably read on nicks school update there isn’t a degree involved as he originally thought. If he completes this program he gets a certificate of completion, he could spend the extra 6 months to get an AA but now he is learning that none of the colleges will transfer the credits from Perry Tech so there is no point in getting the AA. He just has to start over at a different school in order to get a degree.

On the bright side Nick is very talented at what he does. I am so proud of him every time I see one of his projects and I know that everything will work out. Even if he has to start over at another school we will get through it and he has a head start on the knowledge. I know that Nick will do well in whatever he decides to do.

Be happy Nick. This is a crappy thing but 10 years from now you will look back and say, “Wow that sucked!” and then in the next thought you will think about how even though it wasn’t what you expected to happen, everything worked out.
