Yes, you did make false claims about coding - Peggy

You claimed that the outcome would be the same for everyone, no matter what school. That is not true. It has never been true.

The pass rates on certain credentialing exams are available in some form on the organization websites. They are always far lower than Andrews student pass rates of 96-97%. Some local chapter officers have said that only 1/3 (33-34%) of applicants for one exam pass, compared to Andrews 96%. For the AHIMA CCS in 2021, only 55% of first-time test takers in the US and Canada passed compared to Andrews 97%. The year before that, only 42% passed compared to Andrews 97%.

The employment situation for new graduates is bleak, as well, because employers know most of them cannot code. Those students are told to take unrelated jobs in billing or even housekeeping "to get experience." Andrews students, though, have two credentials so they get interviews, and they do really well on employment exams, so they get good *coding* jobs.

You won't believe this. I don't expect you to.
