Career Education Corp Horror stories

 I've been researching culinary schools and have been coming across horror stories of the California School of Culinary Arts (a Le Cordon Bleu school) in Pasadena signing up as many students as possible and getting them into huge debt. I read some good things about CSCA from before ~2002 but it seems like they were bought by CEC after that and has since gone to hell.

The students are taught nothing useful and the instructors are rude and impatient are only there to pick up a paycheck and are forced to pass students no matter how poorly they perform. And job "placement assistance" are jobs at Pizza Hut or jobs that could have been gotten without getting $40,000+ into debt.

These were all from 2005-2007. Has anything changed or is this school in Pasadena still terrible?
