    hey everyone!

    I have looked through FCI and CIA's websites, talked with some people about them, and visited the CIA (visiting FCI soon) - and have developed some thoughts, questions, and concerns. To start, the length of both schools bachelor programs differ greatly. Why is this and does it affect or impact anything post graduation? What do workplaces perfer seeing, a degree from CIA or FCI? My assumption is that they're similair, and more stress should be put on experience and moving up the ladder. How is the comute at FCI supposing the enrolled student is living in the off campus apartments listed on their site? compare classes between the two schools. How long are the days? More questions will follow, i will end here for now, though.

    thanks!
