It's no secret that I'm not WMU's biggest cheerleader, they won't even send me the little alumni pamphlets asking for donations. However, comparing those of us that did our flying at WMU and the others that took admin classes and flew at a Part 91 school on the side...well there is no comparison. Despite the bubble and inbreeding that 141 promotes, there's something to be said for the strict nature of the beast. It promotes a certain study habit, a specific mindset, and attention to detail. I realize there are exceptions in both directions, but in the grand scheme of things, the outliers aside, I say go fly at WMU - if you can afford it. It's like that joke about doctors. What do you call the doctor who graduated at the bottom of their class? A doctor. Yes, right now the regionals will take anyone with a pulse; but do you want to be the one struggles through class and your career, or do you want to cruise through training and be the guy that people are happy to fly with?
