    yeah they suck especially when they charge $750 per class

    thats a lot of money for a school that a student has to beg and plead a reputable school to accept UOP college credits

    I did one class, with them then said screw it.

    I completely agree! This "pseudo" college is a scam laden piece of garbage. They overcharge their "students" leaving them with nothing more than useless credentials.

    Most employers won't recognize an education from UOP and just try getting a reputable school to transfer in any of their bogus credits!

    Thankfully, I only attended a few classes before transferring out!

    Yes, that's why the video is about fuck UP, it's all about Everest.

    Anyway, I had a community college class called Intro to Telecommunications taught by a professor with a masters in Information Technology from UP. One of the assignments she gave us was to look at a telephone and write some observations about it. No fucking joke, this was literally a 1 hour long in class assignment. I googled the model on the phone and copy pasted their manual and printed it out, handed it in, and left. Got an A on it with comments about how above and beyond my work was compared to the rest of the class.

    This same teacher taught some CompTIA prep courses in which she sold answers to the tests! Hahaha! She was like, if you want to pass your CompTIA exam I got your back dog. Just pay me $10 for these ripped PDFs of all the exam questions and answers that I'm reproducing illegally not to mention how fucked up it is to be selling questions and answers to a certification test.

    I only have like 2-3 classes left to get an associates in IT if I wanted it but fuck that. I'm proud to say I did NOT graduate from college because it makes my financial success that much sweeter. Oh and I tested out of high school at 16. I have a serious problem with educational institutions and have ever since about 5th grade, I'm sure a lot of you can relate. It's funny because I always told my friends that supply and demand dictates that a college degree will be worthless when everyone has one and you'll need a masters/PhD to get anything out of it.

    My girlfriend is pretty rich and has a lot of rich friends and I just laugh my ass off now because they're all graduating and can't get a job because employers want work experience. So, instead of growing a pair of balls and working their way into a position to get experience or working their ass off applying places to land an entry level position guess what? They're going back to school to get masters/PhD degrees.

    I tell them I'll see them in 4 years when everyone has a masters/PhD and again it's worthless because of supply and demand and everyone is still asking for job experience except now they're 27 with a Masters so when they try to apply for entry levels jobs they're "overqualified" and when they try to apply for the jobs with Masters/PhD requirements they're lacking the 2-5 years experience requirement not to mention the student loans they have to pay off now (some of them, others are rich enough to not need loans.. so much wasted money). My girlfriend paid around $500,000 for her bachelors degree including a private high school.. makes me want to throw up every time I think about it. She fucking works for me now too with a bachelors in physics, I could have used that $500,000 to make enough money to support us the rest of our lives!

    One of her friends has a double major in government and finance and she couldn't find a job for approximately one month so she gave up and is back in school studying to be a veterinary technician at a trade school. I RAGE the fuck out when I think about her rich ass parents blowing something like $300,000 on her college education just so she can go to a trade school in the end. It's almost as bad as her other friend who has a bachelors in economics and graduated with honors from an ivy league college and now she's working as an administrative assistant for $10 an hour. Jesus fucking CHRIST! I was working data entry/admin assistant jobs when I was 16 with no credentials other than my ability to type fast and not be a fucking RETARD... AHHHHHHHHHH SO MUCH RGAE!!!!#@!@#$!@$!@#%@#
