Don't hate all private colleges
Years (quite a few) ago, I went to a private college, Heald Business College. At that time they'd been around about 80 years or more, and were fully accredited with (I think) about 6-8 campuses in California. You got a very good, practical education there. It was exactly what I was looking for as I was coming out of a really bad period with a failed marriage and physical injuries that made it impossible for me to pursue my former occupation. I needed to get myself sorted out and prepared to work in a totally different field and do it quickly.
They got me started in IT and accounting and found me my first job (where I worked for 15 years and did quite well). They were an excellent school, and well worth every penny I spent there.
Unfortunately, a few years ago, they were sold to some other corporation that used their name but *destroyed* the school. After a few years of that debacle, the new owners went bankrupt, and Heald is no more. They were killed by the leading reason for the death of great businesses: management greed and incompetence.
I don't know a lot about ITT, but perhaps they were good once, too.
