I work right next door to a proprietary college, Virginia College, and am seriously considering taking a course there in Medical Billing and Coding. I have been at my current job for almost five years and though it’s not a bad job, it has limited advancement positions unless I want to become a manager, which I don’t, and the pay, while okay, is not spectacular, either.
I know I could probably get a better and cheaper education at a community college, but the convenience of being able to walk to class right after working a full shift is pretty significant, especially since the other campuses are ten to thirty miles away.
Also, I am a little leery of these types of schools, and don’t know how much to trust them. Does anyone here have specific knowledge of them, especially Virginia College, the one I am considering?
