How much is on your plate?

May 13, 2008 11:22am CST
I've been researching online degree programs and online schools. It seems that you can save a LOT of money, maintaining a job and earning a degree fast. Has anyone had any "success stories" from earning their degree online while being responsible for income, family, etc.?

i'm an online student, though. not true you can save LOT of money. look for reputable credited colleges. i heard success stories, however distance learning is not for everyone. you do have to make changes on your current lifetime and your family must be able to help you to accomplish it acurretly. takes a lot of work and dicipline, but it can be done. not all careers are good for distance learning, i mean i wouldn't go to a surgeon that took all his classes online...l.o.l. do you? good luck!

hey, thanks for responding. It seems as if you can save a substantial amount of money on things like gas, time wasted driving and attending lectures. The amount of time you could be spending earning an income could be another factor. When I was at school I'd say a good 85 percent of my material was to be completed online. As for credentials, even schools like MIT, Harvard, the University of Illinois, the University of North Carolina and the University of Florida are getting into the online business. Any thoughts?
