Question for pilots/Embry -Riddle question?

I heard from some people that the best way to become a Major Airline pilot is to attend Embry-Riddle, but after some research, i heard from a lot of alumni that they are still in 100K+ debt, and they warned me that the whole "find job once complete college" thing is just a propaganda . So my question is: Should i attend Embry-Riddle? and What is alternate(money-saving) way to become a Major Airliner pilot, and how long would it take? Please be as specific as possible. Thanks in advance

The last answer is the best in my opinion. You guys saying that Embry Riddle isnt worth it? How so? Just because you might not have gotten a job doesnt mean that everyone wont. It depends entirely on you. How hard you try, how many contacts you make and weather you really want it. And most of all it depends on... More
