How funny! I was reading your posts and we both withdrew the same day! Only I really didn't give a reason - and Mr. P's response to me was less than yours - just "good luck". I know that I withdrew, but after nearly $20,000.00 and 18 months of dedicated logging in and emailing him, you'd think I would get a little more input -- you too -- no one said a word - just -okay -you're out. hmmmm....I do feel like a lot of my frustration will be relieved in changing schools.

I googled reviews for Bryan and came across this one:

I don't know if it's the same location or not, though. THis is the only review I could find so far.

Wow, that sounds GREAT! I will most definitely give them a call.

I talked to Nikki at CCR, whom I believe is the director of admissions or something like that, and she gave me a 2 week guest pass to login to their board and see how things are. She also explained a bit about how the classes are. I'm not sure if I wrote this on your thread or not, but if not, she said you can login in to the scheduled class times on-site and actually dictate with the class and you can see your instructor on webcam.

Sounds like it might be similar, but I don't know if it has all of what you described.

That school sounds really great, though. Keep me updated and let me know what you decide!

I got to tell you, I can't wait to get away from CRID. I just can't believe how on our own we are there and not to mention, the disorganized Administrative staff! My theory teacher was GREAT (Mr. Sadler...had him for both theory classes), but after that, there's a lot to be desired.

I've been trying to call CCR tonight and can't get through - why am I moving to Dallas (if I don't get cold feet, because that's a long way to go when it's just you and your daughter....) because I want to go back to the city and Jackie needs to be in Texas schools - she's planning on going to medical school but she needs to have the opportunity for a better high school for a couple of years, first.

So, would you be attending class four nights a week in a video conference? How is the testing set up and do they have Performance Evaluator? Could you give me a little information, I'm still thinking of going -- I'm in the same boat as you -- I hate to trouble you, but I'd really appreciate the help ! Thanks!

Wow! you got more information out of them than I did - Nikki seemed surprised I called and was interested in going -- and they've had open house all this month and I haven't done anything - someone called today - I am so torn - I just don't know what to do! Part of me says to stay at CRID because I will be there (I'm moving because I need to give my children a bigger life and I'm ready to go back now that they are older) - the other part says to jump ship -- I'm really impressed with CCR -- I'm not sure (and I have to run right now, so I will continue this)...

Well, I'm back - so is Tara going to CCR? I spent a lot of time talking to them and going through their website and I WISH I had that at CRID - I really think that CCR has a top notch online program -- and, frankly, I was intending to go ahead and register there, but since I plan on relocating to Dallas (if I don't get cold feet), I am going to stick with CRID. I know that Debra McCarty registered there and I need to see how she's doing and how she likes it -- she said someone else from CRID had gone over -- I'll let you know what I find out.

I did have a chilling conversation with someone the other day -- of the 30 or so that I started out in class with, first semester, only 12 are left -- ughhh......I don't know if that's verifiable, but that's what we came up with -- scary.....

Wow! That was a book, Brit! Congrats on promoting, by the way! Proud of you for that!

Well, I have been through absolute mental hell over school and theory recently -- and then my life changed, drastically, so I'm sticking with CRID. I did a LOT of investigating and I had the same conversation with Mark K. -- too late to go back - so, I'm trying to incorporate his theory as much as I can --

I feel the same way -- If I knew then what I know now, I would not have chosen Phoenix -- it's just too stroke intensive, although it is a logical theory -- but -- I have had a change of heart about many things and am leaving to go to Dallas this summer, so I'm going to stick with CRID -- it's expensive, but, like you, I just don't think that moving is a good idea. Although, at this point in life, I feel like i am going to be paying for school forever!

I talked with CCR and it seems like a really good school, but I don't think the trade off was what I wanted and then I decided to move, soo......

Just keep writing -- it's going to come and we are going to be fine! I hope your quarter is great this time -- who do you have? I still have Mrs. Scoggins and I have to dig in - my last quarter before I lose aid --

Let me know -- have to go for a hearing right now....

Hey, Brit! Is your mom thinking of going to CCR in Indiana? I have been looking into that program and am seriously thinking of changing schools - their online is really terrific and interactive. I have another friend who is transferring there. I was just wondering if you knew what Tara thought of it.

Oh, Brit! We are all in the same boat! I still have an 80 to pass, but I think I can do it. Then, of course, I still have the 100's to do -- I'm getting scared - I am going to call Mr. P today. As I understand it, if you took 3 quarters of theory, then, you have 4 quarters to do the 80/100 class and if you don't hit 100 by the end of the 7th quarter, then you are out of aid - is that what you were told? I'm in my 3rd quarter of the 80/100 speed class and, at this point, due to things with my kids and my job, I may need to quit CRID and go to Indiana online - they have a great program and I have two friends who will be starting in 2 weeks there - they are in the same boat as us - they have a much stricter online setting and they have an interactive classroom - you use video and realtime linkup and you are actually in a class and although it's tougher, I think it might be better.

I'm just not sure -- I hope you pass your 100's -- I'll pray for you - I'm going to try and do the same thing -- the need to get through school has suddenly become top priority. So, I'm having to pour on the steam and I just don't know what I'm doing "wrong" that I'm not getting the speed -- I'm sure you feel the same way and I wish I had answers.

I'll let you know anything I find out and I'll keep you in mind.

Tell Tara hello and I'm sure her dogs are lovely - I'm a big shepherd fan (I have an Anatolian right now - she's such a sweetie) -- Take care and I hope you had a really happy Valentine's day!

Oh, how's your mom? I don't think she EVER gets on here - is she doing okay? Tell her I said hi!
At 0:11 on February 13, 2009, Jeannie Wright said…
Hey, Brit! Sounds like school is going great for you! That's terrific. Yep, you bet I will ask for her my next quarter - I need someone like that and I'll insist on it! I'm so glad it's working out - what speed are you at? I envy that personal touch! Although, I will say that Mrs. Scoggins is really good for me - she keeps in touch and has really helped me through a lot - and I'm the old pro in the group, so I have to keep it up and help the other girls - they are all new to speed - it's a great class.

sorry I haven't been on the board - I've had pneumonia for a month and been in bed - still managed to pass an 80 though!

Hi, Brittany! So glad to hear from you - I was getting worried about you and Tara! Glad you have a great instructor. Initially, I received Ms. Lipford, but I don't do well under her, so I begged and Mr. P put me back with Ms. Scoggins, whom I adore and can ask ANYTHING and she gets back to me with constructive input! That makes such a difference. And I'd love to be back in class with all familiar people!

Yes, CRID could do some stuff different and I'm anxious to get the Performance Evaluator, but look at the post on my site from Virginia Kling about that - I asked her what her opinion was and after reading her post, I'm not so upset about the delay - I don't know that I'm ready for it, yet.

I wish we had cameras for video linkup to the classroom - that would be nice - but it's probably more technical stuff to go wrong - not everybody is in tune with their equipment -- so, I guess I will just go along. Onground school is not an option for me, so I'm staying for a while - the cost is prohibitive, though, and I'm rethinking that.

Several people left from my last class and went either onground or to other schools and a couple went to voice school, so I'm just hitting the keys as hard as I can and it seems to be working - I really need to get this done and that stress is eating me alive! If Tara goes onground, it will be really interesting to see how fast she attains her speed - I do think that online is harder, but there is no substitute for practice and as I am practicing more, it's getting better. I hope I can just get to 100 by the end of the semester - that's what I'm trying for!

Well, keep you head up and keep checking in - I'm here all the time! Tell Tara HI for me!

Hey, Brit! How's your first week of the new quarter going? I've been pounding the keys and adding briefs, going to start testing again tonight! Say Hi when you can -- I'd hate to lose touch!

Have a fantastic 2009, Brit! Jeannie

Hey, Brit - just read your 12/6 comment - I feel better knowing I'm not the only person who has to work an hour on a sentence! I want to vent for just a moment -- okay?

Since the online students don't get to talk much and heaven forbid the DF is not the place to do it - I honestly do feel better about what I'm doing. It takes that kind of work and more for me to master this stuff, but no one owns up to it. I have toyed, and am still toying with the idea of leaving CRID and possibly going to CRIL. They don't offer a degree, just a certificate, but they have performance evaluator, they have online classes that have video and you are linked up realtime, you get a teacher's personal evaluation of your work within 48 hours and so on. It's so much more up-to-snuff than CRID is. I am really frustrated because I've been in school for a year and have had little-to-no input as to what I'm doing right or wrong.

Okay, enough said. I'm just wanting more feedback about how to do this and be more efficient. I hear we are supposed to get performance evaluator next semester and I hope that's true. Of course, I honestly think it will make some aspects much more difficult for us.

So, that said, I'm still at CRID and going back into 80/100 and hoping I pass before midpoint!

And how is your day going? Thanks for listening!

Hi, Brit! Hope you had great holidays! How did your semester go? What speed will you be going into?! Sorry I'm so late in replying. I just hit a real funk for the last six months and now I'm back. Do you know who your teacher is next semester? I haven't looked yet!

Hit me back and let me know what's new!

Thank you for the comment, Brit. :) I hope your writing is going well. I'm cramming this weekend as usual. I need to get better organized. How is it going with you?
At 18:06 on October 6, 2008, Jeannie Wright said…
Hey, Brittany - how did your first week go? Mine went great - I wrote better last night than I have in a long time - hope it continues - did anymore people show up in your class? we have about 30!
At 21:14 on October 1, 2008, Jeannie Wright said…
Hi, Brit! Oh, I really miss you in class - we have about 25 and we have Ms. Scoggins, who I think I will like. Got report cards today - OMG! Did not do good! Didn't realize that if I didn't pass both my 80's I was pretty sunk! So, needless to say, there's nearly mass mutiny in my class as I am not the only one struggling through that speed - oh, well - I will just have to do better this semester--I'm going to try doing my SA by dictation only - my problem is going from the written to dictation and I think the only way to get over that is to just do everything I can by dictation - what do you think? You always have the best tips and advice!

Well, I really hope you like Ms. Ramirez and maybe a smaller class is better - but I bet it is lonely! Listen, you are really really talented and I just know you are going to do great this semester -- just keep telling yourself that and envision making your speeds! And let's do keep up here - maybe we will be in the next class together!

On another note, I heard from your Mom - she sounds like she's hanging in there, too! Did you get to do anything fun for our "break" - I just vegged out - and really enjoyed it! The fall flowers are coming out here and I thought of you on my drive to work this morning! I picture your house something like Wisteria Lane with all these lovely blooming bushes and trees! LOL!

Well - have fun !
