@Gary S. Elliott:

Thanks for your great text.
I am from Europe/Germany.

I never heard about "National Centers of Academic Excellence in IA
Education", before.
Thus I read your very interesting answer and each link twice.
Just to ensure, I understood everything, I will try to sum up some of the
facts, of the texts.

The NSA designates a few universities and colleges as a "National Center of
Academic Excellence in IA Education", if they pass a special test.
These few are quite exclusive and (although not mentioned obviously)are the
"elite" of IT Security teaching universities and colleges(it appeared to be
so, for me).
Is that right?

Respectfully,
Dominik Kallusky
