Default Are these good training schools

Im looking for a training school to be a aircraft mechanic that offers financial aid and even better if housing is also available ,Im willing to relocate anywhere in america.So far i have reviewed these training schools ,Can anyone who attended these schools or knows someone that has give their experience or information on them like tuition, housing, job placement, accrediation, faa approved,hands on training,credit transer, etc..

National Aviation Academy,
Spartan College Of Aeronautics and Technology,
Tennessee Technology Center,
Tulsa Tech ,

If you know any other schools out their can you post a list and the information.I would rather prefer if housing is available but its not that important, the quality of hands on training and degree is more important.

Whats the difference between Aviation Maintainence degree, Aviation Electronics Degree, and Avionics Maintainence Degree. What Degree has more job openings and pays more just asking so i can be prepared and make a right choice for my aviation future.One last question Does Flight Safety Academy,Aeroism,ATP or CAE offer any mechanic courses or are they just pilot/flight schools?

Thanks Aviators

I went to Spartan, but that was in the '80's. I don't know what is it like today. The degrees are just where you focus: general maintenance, aircraft electronics, or cockpit aviation electronics (avionics). Your choice. I don't know where the best job market is. Probably all the same.

I can't speak for the other school's but my cousin got his A&P through Michigan Institute of Aviation Technology. He spent just under a year at TSA and just got hired by US Airways in PHL. They did help him find some jobs and he got quite a few job offers after he graduated although I can't offer much help in answering your other questions.
