Nice, but two complaints. First, it glides over the issue of utility of degrees for employment, saying there's no difference. But there is. Degrees from NA schools are less acceptable, overall, than those from RA schools. The two questions this video ignores are a) to what extent is this true and b) will this affect you?

My second complaint is while the video was extremely accurate about NA and RA (except where it implies all accreditors use candidacy--they don't), it really fails to do what it sets out to do: explain the differences in the two forms of accreditation. It explains what they cover, but not how, nor how any of it (except credit transfer issues) might affect students and graduates.

Good info. Mostly accurate. Incomplete and--regarding degree utility--misleading.
