Alot of words for advise especially since I work as a Academic Advisor for a 2 year school and see alot of the exact same thing.
So, I am a student at PITT but with the economy, my lack of income, and the sole fact that I hate being in debt towards anyone whether that be my parents (who probably cant really afford to have me there anyway) or the gov't, I am considering furthering my education through an online program such as Kaplan University.
I will miss the party life that comes with living on campus, but I will still be able to visit many of my friends at other colleges so that is not too big of a deterrent.
I was wondering if anyone on here has gotten a degree online, what the value of it is (compared to actually attending a school), and if any of you are employers, do you have any preference when it comes to hiring a student from an online program or an established university.
Any input is greatly appreciated.
