Now that I am out of college, I have learned that the education and degree I earned at Menlo are exceptionally substandard to otherwise comparable schools. The Faculty led me to believe I was being groomed for a career in business administration.

On my first interview for an entry level job with a major bay area biotech firm, I was told that

Menlo College is where kids go when they can't get into Jr. College

Another HR Director actually questioned Menlo College's Accredidation telling me that she had received applications from many former students and learned through her due diligence that Menlo's accredidation was temporarily revoked in '04 due to 'standards compliance issues', and that the faculty at Menlo is regarded by most Bay Area companies (that she's familiar with) as "..the biggest pool of unemployable nitwits in Silicon Valley". Her words, not mine. Yeh, I was shocked. I just spent $62k to attend what I was told was "Silicon Valley's Business School" and I'm sitting in this chair realizing what a complete disaster that choice was, and all the consequences to my future and career I'm going to have to endure.

My advice to anyone considering Menlo College? Spare yourself the humiliation of presenting your diploma to any serious and competitive Bay Area company. If they don't laugh at you, they'll laugh with their associates once you've walked out the door.
