On Line Master Degree Program
Q: I graduated from college in May of 2002, and haven't had much luck in
finding a job. Thus, I was thinking about going to grad school, but
since my GPA was kind of low, my options might be pretty limited. I've
seen advertisements for online Masters degrees, and was just wondering
if anyone has any experience obtaining their degree through an online
program, and whether or not this carries much weight in terms of
finding a job.
A:The UOP sucks. Don't waste your time getting an online master's degree. Mine isn't recognized for shit. Go to a regular university and get a quality education. UOP slams material into 6 week classes and is a diploma mill in my opinion. Get your moneys worth elsewhere. Check out the Peterson's guide on Distance Learning. 100% off-campus graduate degrees are available from a number of outstanding schools like the University of Illinois, Columbia, Duke, Penn State, University of Maryland, Renssellaer, University of Colorado, University of Massachusetts, University of Texas, and many more. http://dir.yahoo.com/Education/Distance_Learning/Colleges_and_Univers... http://www.petersons.com/distancelearning/ especially http://www.petersons.com/distancelearning/code/search.asp Considering I did everything else to prepare for grad school online.. From the online Kaplan, to the Princeton Review online, and of course GMATquiz.com (which was the best in my opinion). It just made sense to continue the trend and go to college online.
