Does anyone know the current health of our company. Our lead situation is the worst I have ever seen and there is no way to sustain a company with this type of lead flow. Any word of layoffs?

Paying them based on graduation rates (which is what they used to do) but in no way has any control over, is completely unethical. Yes let's continue to force the students to PAY for education that doesn't warrant the tuition!
