I already graduated a bachelor degree and planning to pursue my lifelong dream to become a lawyer and I'm on my 3rd year proper but before that I enrolled in a 6 months medical transcription training and finished it last year. I think education is a continous process. How about you, are you thinking of a 2nd course too?

education is a continuous process. there's no end to it. even in life outside school, we continue to learn everyday from everything that is happening to us and around us. i am a licensed pharmacist and i used to dream about being a nurse, too. but then, i changed my plan when i met my present boyfriend. i will move to him one day this year to sweden. instead, i wanna keep on practicing my pharmacy profession. but i will also need to study in sweden to upgrade my philippine standard to sweden's standard of education.

I firmly believe that what we gained on higher studies will resulted to good cause that not only ourselves would benefit but also to some who needed the most. Writing is one of my obessesion too. Nice proffesion you have thier sir bosing!

why dont you try to enroll at ICS, writing is one of the courses they offered, tuition is per module sent and you can choose your study pace for as long as you will submit to them your required assignments.

I had Medical Technology as my Bachelor Degree. It also served as my pre med course. Now I'm practicing as a doctor. I'm taking up a Master's Degree in Hospital Administration via distance learning. Although it's harder now because I'm no longer a full time student.

Hi doc! welcome to myLot! Distance Learning requires that the student should be self-directed and self-motivated in his approach on his study and possess effective study skills and habits. You really need to invest extra time and effort necessary to study independently through Internet programming and other instructional media to follow the class outline and timetable. That was a really hard process and at the same time you are working but nothing seems to be hard if you are determine and enthusiastic to finish your goal. Goodluck doc! Thanks for sharing.

I finished computer engineering. I want to pursue another career. I have always wanted to be a lawyer. I'm just way too busy to juggle school and work right now. How much for a medical transcription course? i'm actually thinking of saving up for a 2nd course. And basically im thinking of either taking a caregiving short course or that medical transcription training.

You really seem a very enthusiastic lady and I really sense with great determination you can pursue your lifelong dream. As for medical transcription I enrolled in MTC and the 6 months course for non-medical student would cost you around 40k for installment basis and if cash basis roughly around 35k. I can say that was one good training that open my eyes to the beauty of medical field that I was so foreign and never in mind that I will ever love the course. I took it because it might be useful in the future when we are ready to migrate to other snowy country lol!

What's your first degree? Don't you think the 4 years that you spent in school would just be wasted if you don't use it at all?

No. I think I don't wasted my 4 years degree course because I belong to the top 3 of our graduating class and it landed me a high paying job. My first degree course help me to achieve a higher studies in Bachelor of Law for some of our subjects are related to my higher studies such as taxation and tariff laws.

I graduated with a degree in Architecture, worked for some private firms and a mall for 10 years before I went to private practice because of my kids... I also thought of taking just like what you did, MT to make use of it someday while I'm here at home when my husband is not here, but I'd no time, thinking of an online studies though, but i still have to find time. But I'm still giving myself space to do something I really love to do. My first love actually is painting, oil and watercolor. Still experimenting on other mediums. Well, goodluck to all of us who still pursue to study other fields in pursue of our so many dreams. the important thing is that were happy to do it...
