    You can't get federal financial aid. Therefore, loans must be all private and you can't get on PSLF, IBR or PAYE. 250 k+ in all private loans with high interest rate.

    "Marshall B. Ketchum University is a private, non-profit, independent, educational institution that does not seek, nor receive any direct government funding for its operations. Tuition and fees, however, cover less than half of the total operating expenses of the University. The balance of operating expenses are covered by contributions from individuals, corporations and foundations, as well as endowment income, investment income, and income derived from University clinics."

    Too bad this is not a major forum, 988 likes + "I see what you did there..." pops up on your news feed.

    Ketchum is the last and the worst school in CA. Attend at your own peril... not even accreditated

    Many new grads from existing schools couldn't even land interviews last year. What is going to happen to the new grads from the new schools that will graduate their first classes this year?
