Shimer College: the worst school in America?

The thing is, in the hours after the rankings were published in October, something unexpected happened. Whilst almost nobody stepped forward in defense of the other colleges on the list, Shimer fans began vociferously attacking its inclusion. One graduate wrote that it’s ‘a totally unique snowflake, and comparing it to other schools is next to impossible’. He added that he wouldn’t take his time there back ‘for all the money in the world. Looking back, I’d go into even more debt to make sure it happened.’ Another called it ‘an eccentric little school that appeals to few; but for those few, it evidently serves as a valuable and stimulating harbor.’

Defunct Career College’s Founders Plead Guilty to Fraud Charges

The founders of a defunct career college in Ohio have pleaded guilty to fraud charges in connection with allegations that they used the institution to steal $2.3-million in federal student-aid money, according to the Canton Repository.
John Richard Ceroni, 65, and Adale M. Ceroni, 63, pleaded guilty in federal court in Cleveland to charges related to mail fraud and money laundering. They had been accused of acquiring fake high-school diplomas for students they had recruited and using the documents to apply for financial aid on the students’ behalf.
The institution they operated, known as Carnegie Career College, closed after it was raided by FBI agents.
