i did some google checking and with the exeption of the school website, there are no robert thompson phd's with a degree from farington. unless you're talking about a couple of medical doctors or a gene specialist, none of whom would have a phd in bussiness.

and at a quick glance at at the website, you can tell it's a diploma mill. it has a student body of 450 but it's spread out across all of europe and north america, and so are the campuses. did you see, there even opening a campus in las vegas! how great that must be for a school....to be in las vegas.....lol. the school is bullshit. you can tell. it's no real school. i guess an equvalent of this school would be like going to devry or ITTtech, but doing correspondence courses instead of actually going there. a degree from farington dont mean shit. if i was hiring someone, and i saw farington university, i would look it up online first (just like any univeristy im not fammiliar with), and may i add that i was hard to find through google, the link was good but if you type in farington university you have to go through a few pages before you get the link. [coulnt find any stats about the school from any agency either] well, if i had to aprove of someone's education based on the reputation and website of the school, i'd think someone who came from farington didnt really study but paid for his diploma.


remember the movie "accepted"? the schools website kinda reminds me of the website they created in the movie. just a facade, held up by a few twigs.

oh yeah, and if it's not a diploma mill why are people getting fired for having diplomas from there?

  Benton County sheriff fires Sgt. Jack Burright
Corvallis Gazette-Times: "Benton County Sheriff Jim Swinyard announced Tuesday afternoon that he has fired Sgt. Jack Burright for misrepresenting himself on county job application forms.

Swinyard, who made the announcement shortly after noon in his office, said he made his decision after Benton County District Attorney Scott Heiser said Burright was 'no longer a viable witness' in any criminal matter that Heiser’s office would prosecute.

Burright was the subject of an Oregon State Police investigation earlier this summer after he falsified his educational background on job applications with the sheriff’s office. Specifically, he indicated that he graduated from Corvallis High School when he did not. He did later receive a GED.

In addition, Burright bought a degree from an unaccredited online diploma mill called Farington University, and he listed this degree on a 2004 application for lieutenant. "

i think people would be interested in looking up "University Consulting Inc"


http://www.corvallist.com/2006/06/jack- ... wrong.html

"Burright claims that he truly believed that Farington University was "an online university that could apply the college credits [he] had already earned, plus other training and experience, to earn a college diploma." He was "delighted" that Farington evaluated his life experience and previous transcripts and declared that not only was he eligible for instant graduation, but he could do so summa cum laude. (The funniest part, personally, was that Burright reflexively censored the "cum" with asterisks, so it reads summa *** laude. I wanted Obi-Wan Kenobi to step in and say, with a wave of his hand, "This is not the word you are looking for." But I'm also a geek.)"

I came across this website and want to reply to the incorrect statement that Farington University, of Farington Leyland UK is not a real University.  
Farington University is my NO MEANS A DEGREE MILL!
We have very high standards for application, require on-campus education, thesis and dissertations for all of our degrees.  We are NOT an undergraduate institution and perhaps that has some people confused.  I have also seen links to a website that is NOT our university.  Perhaps someone is using our good name and reputation and issuing fake degrees, but it is most definately not us.  We are accredited in the UK, Ireland, Germany and now the USA along with international distance learning accreditation despite the face that we do not all 100% distance learning.  We recently merged with the Bavarian College of Science and Technology and are building our new multi-million dollar campus in the USA.  We have been in existence since 1948 and our business school (in which I teach) has won the Queens Award for the best Small Graduate School of Business in the UK.  We work closely with Oxford University, Bristol University and the London School of Business.
If you want to know about us, use the correct URL which is www.faringtonuniversity.eu
Thank you for printing this correction.

Counseling has traveled far as the field of psychology made remarkable progresses. The study of human psychology is something many adults are fascinated by and always show keen interest in understanding the reason behind people do numerous things. The study of psychological sciences is not just related to understanding of the psychological issues people face but also the treatment of those diseases.

At my program there were some counselors with unacredited degrees which you here misleadingly call "fake diplomas" or "phony degrees" in your attempts to malign people with nontraditional college educations.  These were great people who deserved college degrees because of their life experiences even if they didn't go through what most people would consuder a "degree program".  Since they worked in my program for a few years it qualified them to get masters degrees from nontraditional academic institutions that the mob here label as "diploma mills" which couldn't be further from the truth.  Really, who do you think would know more about child psychology the people at my program who worked with us kids or people who went to traditional colleges for advanced degrees that never worked with kids like us before?  I think we can all agree that even though their educations were nontraditional or their degrees conferred by churches doesn't mean they don't make great therapists.  It's your heart that matters, not your paperwork.

A lot of you here are just like the liberal northeast elitists I see everyday.  You think that for some reason people have to use the educational institutions you support or their degrees are no good.  Well if you don't like the rules, appeal to the colleges to change them instead of whining about it.  Many unacredited nontraditional schools award credits for life experience which only an elitist would dismiss by saying the person didn't have "book learning" like you, Anne.  These are great people and if they worked in a program for a couple of years that's way better than a close-minded book-learning education you liberal elitists always hold out as the gold standard.  I know these people make great therapists because my counselor at my program used to be the basketball coach but after a few years of working with kids he was able to get a masters degree from a local church that had a college to be a psychologist based on his direct life experience.  The program promoted him and gave him our peer group and he did a great job.  You have to step back and look at the larger picture and stop being so close-minded Anne.  Without good and real people like my counselor I would not be successful today.

I've finally made it.  I've been called a liberal elitist (although I'm not from the northeast so I hope it still counts).  Thank you good sir for the compliment.  :seg:

I've told you before that I did finish.  I graduated from a program that I didn't need in the first place.

And yes, I'm proud that someone called me an elitist.  I'm proud of my fancy book learning.

I think Whooter proved to you earlier that you were prone to drug use and that Straight rescued you from it. You should try being more honest.

Ah so, Grasshopper... you come to right place. Send money order for $499 to DEE (yes, I more expensive than Farrington, but times be hard). You have fake degree next day.
