It’s always bugged me that I never finished my degree. Back when I was 18 I started pursuing an English degree, got 2 years in, and once I learned how stupid of a degree it was, I just quit college altogether because I didn’t know what I wanted to do. Now I’m at a point where if I want to be promoted any further at my company, I’d need at least a bachelor’s in business if not an MBA. The problem is I work a crap ton of hours (as I said before, trying to get a promotion) and I have small children at home, so time is limited. I need to get my degree as efficiently as possible. I’ve considered online schools, but I’m a little concerned about their reputation. I mean if you had to choose between two job applicants, would you choose the one that went to a state university, or the one who got a degree from the university of phoenix? I also have the impression that because online schools have a reputation of being too easy, that they’re starting to make their classes harder in order to fight that reputation. Like since you don’t get to attend actual lectures, they make up for it by assigning twice as much homework. So you end up getting a degree that everyone thinks was easy, when it was actually harder than a traditional school. I also know that I can challenge some courses. I don’t know if they have this at every school, but basically it means that if you don’t want to take say, history 101, you could just go take a history test and if you pass, you get credit for that class even though you never attended. Would be awesome if I could get like 75% of my degree just by challenging classes. Although I’m sure they probably have limits on that kind of thing. Anyhoo, all advice/shared experience is welcome.
