There is a lot of good feedback above, both pro and con. I have talked with individuals who say they have negotiated the buy in at $5K or below. I can't confirm this because I have no intentions of using CAC. My…"
"It really takes a committment to the program, but I believe that anybody that is willing to work the program can make it on it. Just be careful with your buying and structure good deals. I've been on the program since around Nov,2011, and…"
