Why did people choose their school for this program?Why did people choose their school for this program?

"The two biggest factors in my decision to pick my college over other colleges were price and location. The only other massage school was over an hour and a half away and cost almost twice the amount. I definitely feel I made the right call because I would probably still be paying off my student loans if I had chosen differently."
"I needed something local to the place I lived at the time.I considered the local community college as well, but scheduling would have been more challenging if I had gone that route. I wish I had spent my money at a better school"
"I chose this institution based on friend recommendations and the credentials of the college. Myotherapy also allowed me to sit in and observe courses prior to enrollment to ensure it was a good fit for my goals."

What surprised people about the school they chose?What surprised people about the school they chose?

"I was surprised that such a small school awarded scholarship money and had such a competent financial aid department. It really helped me pay off my loans faster than I would have been able to otherwise."

"I was surprised by it's location. I was in a strip mall and was a bit shabby."
"When I enrolled at Myotherapy I informed the registrar that I planned to move on and complete my Associates degree. I was misinformed and told that my courses in anatomy, physiology, pathology, and nutrition would could towards that degree. I learned 18 months later that none of these credits were transferable and had I completed them at a community college first I could have saved thousands of dollars."

How do people describe their job hunt?How do people describe their job hunt?

"I found the job hunting experience to be very frustrating. I must have applied at over fifty different places in the first couple of months without even getting an interview. I felt like many places didn't want to hire me simply because I was a man in a women dominated field."
"I moved to a different state where there is a high demand for massage therapists. After getting licensed I was able to get the first job I applied for and I work there still."
"My job hunting experience was frustrating since I had believed I would have career counseling at the college I attended. My last six months in the program the college changed ownership and a number of faculty and staff left the institution so the upheaval harmed many students. I chose standard methods to seek a job and found the sources to be questionable and not always ethical."
