Best trick for transfer credits is to attend the state university (in the same state!) after the community college—transfers go much more smoothly that way.

The for-profits—especially the online for profits—are a nightmare of abject stupidity, and most HR folks have slowly but surely begun to realize this.

Basically guidance counselors are the saddest people on the planet. They are the ones who usher people to their mediocre lives. That takes a toll on you.
Anyway, I don't remember exactly what I was trying to get at. Also, I can't see what any of that **** on your diagram you showed me says.
I don't really have a point other than itwasntme shouldn't come over to my field.

What our workers really need and what universities have to consider (or lose relevancy with the birth of online accreditation) is a re-imagination of degree programs. It's not that degree programs aren't useful, its that they're not focused. A lot of degrees require upwards of a year or two of non-specific mostly useless GEC coursework. They should tailor programs towards the entry level positions people are seeking and business demands, with the option of receiving progressive and more advanced education up through the advanced degrees on an as needed basis.
You need to get more skills in PCR and proteomics? Ok, we offer a one year battery of courses the give you a certificate and are compatible with a cumulative degree program of "biochemical lab technology" (you're only 75 credit hours and a dissertation away from a masters). This benefits not only the job market and students, but also the universities as it broadens the base of those seeking education and opens the door to life long education.http://woodwardswhiskey.wordpress.com/
He was punching him like the collective karmic debt he'd accrued was coming to collections, mostly on his face.
