I have been going to The Court Reporting Institute of Dallas (CRID) online since July of 2007. I am currently only at 100wpm and am starting to feel burnt out and like I need more structure and more to rely on than solely self-discipline. I recently checked out The College of Court Reporting (CCR) in Hobart, IN. They were the first school to get an online program, so they've been doing it for a little longer than CRID and from what I've seen on the website, have more structure and organization.… Continue

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