BA? AA/AS? or Certificate for Radiologic Technicians?

Hello! I am 39 years old and trying to become a Radiologic Technician. What type of school should I go to? (I live in VA.) The school that gives you AS told me that because I don't have any medical back ground, I have to go for Medical Assistance first, then after I work as a medical assistant for a while, go back to the school and take the RT program. That will take about 6 years! She said RT program will be too hard for me right now. She said her school is well known in town and the reputation is different. You will get a better job if you go to her school but this school is twice more expensive compare to the one at the hospital. The hospital based school which gives you a certificate said you can enter as a high-school graduate. I think normally if you go to hospital based school, they will hire you right away when you finish with the school. Please give me your advice. Thanks!
