Personally I don't think I am getting my moneys worth. Concorde used to be CODA (accredited by ADA) but we are not anymore, which is a big deal. I didn't know that I was getting my EFDA (dental licence) from a test I will be taking. I could have bought books and took my state boards another way but got sucked in to school. Financial aid was not fair in my opinion because my classmate was offered a scholarship and I was not. my tip is to ask a lot of questions!
