I came across this thread while considering AoA. I actually went to visit their KFRG campus last weekend. Aside from price, are there other reason anyone would want to discourage someone from enrolling with them? I thought the guaranteed instructor position was a good incentive to help build up those hours, but it sounds like some of you feel that it's a rip off. I know this is an old thread, but if anyone has any further feedback to offer, I'd really appreciate it.
