Just saw this one today, and I think they do this sh*t on purpose.
They actually self-commented this YouTube video with "Love it? Hate it? Want to be in one of our new Videos?!?!?!?"
Now that's desperation!

So... the guy who was telling her all about how great Education Connection is, has a career as a window washer, eh?

Thumbs Up

I wonder what "university" he studied that subject at.

Or maybe he was just a perv pretending to be one just to look in her window.

Seems kinda odd, you're a teenage girl at home in your bedroom & there's some guy on a ladder outside your window.

"Daddy, the window washer you hired told me all about Education Connection!!!"

"Window washer??? What window washer???"

Confused



Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

No....U R NOT.

Re these online universities.....fact is, I have no clue at all.   I am moved to dismiss them all out of hand, but that's never a good thing to do.

Amazing there must be so many this company is trying to succeed by being like some monitor all travel sites site.

I saw it on Adult Swim last night(I kid you not, it played again RIGHT AFTER it was done playing). My initial thought: I don't like this one. I like the old ones better.

Dear God... Please help us all.. The way she "raps" reminds me of the early 80's rap. And not in a good way. They need to get edumacated.



Say something clever here...

No, I'm too lazy. Imagine it yourself.

Is this even legit? I ask because of this....

As some posters here know I retired from the army in 2013. While looking for employment I applied to some online. Minutes after doing so I'd get a call from some education service asking if I wanted to use them to go back to school. At first I was polite, telling them, no, I applied for a job, I want to go to work, not school. But it didn't take long to realize maybe I'd a mistake. You apply for a job, you're naturally going to give them your number. I was getting a bunch of calls every day from "we can assist you going back to school" places. They seemed really interested in the fact that as a retiree I had GI Bill privileges.

It frustrated me because I explained to one of these services, I don't need your help. I can drive to the Education Center on post in less than 15 minutes. So nope, don't need the service even if I was looking to go to school at the time. I managed to stop the calls by just not using any online applications to apply for them. I even GOTR a job that way.

I didn't really like the job and I didn't 'need' the money, so I decided to go back to school at a local college to learn some new skills. Took me all of one week of looking at school and one afternoon of applying without "Education Connection".

I just saw this piece of garbage commercial on the ID channel. Holy sh*t it's terrible! 

Is this ad supposed to make me feel stupid so I need to go back to school, because my IQ dropped a few notches after seeing this. I can't take this commercial seriously.

I'm pretty sure it's geared towards the folks whose mesothelioma/vaginal mesh/slip & fall windfalls didn't pan out.

I don't know why people don't just get off their lazy asses and at least get a GED so that they can do somewhat better with their lives than going to a for profit crap school.

Hey, Marshall Johnson Academy is a Prestigious Private school, and the graduates of MJA go on to the even more prestigious Harvard and Yale!
My name is Donathan, pronounced the same way you pronounce Jonathan, except with a D. :D $608 for her brother's scooter. Fair is fair my ass. Being tough on Public Access TV is priceless.

     Okay, okay! Marshall Johnson Academy is not a real school in Jacksonville, Florida! It's not a real school at all!

I'm sick to death of almost every thread becoming about Douche Boy.  I can ignore the ones patently about he/she/it, but still have to wade through the continuous crap of self-aggrandizement and mockingly posting more lies from the past to keep the whole train going.

We'd have to do our part and stop setting him up, too.  In this case, someone else goaded him into a reply.  I've done it myself.
