Here are a few of the shady recruiting habits Obama highlighted in his speech:
"They'll say you don't have to pay a dime for your degree, but once you register, they'll suddenly make you sign up for a high-interest student loan."
"They'll say that if you transfer schools, you can transfer credits. But when you try to actually do that, you suddenly find out that you can't."
"They'll say they've got a job placement program when, in fact, they don't."
Obama's speech also highlighted a particularly egregious case: "One of the worst examples of this is a college recruiter who had the nerve to visit a barracks at Camp Lejeune and enroll Marines with brain injuries -- just for the money. These Marines had injuries so severe some of them couldn't recall what courses the recruiter had signed them up for."
