A little WGU MSISA Review ....
I thoroughly enjoyed rebel100's review thread and it was in part a large reason as to why I decided to do my masters through WGU. So thanks rebel for that! For the benefit of others that are interested in the MS Information Security and Assurance degree I decided that I will do the same thing.
I have been in IT for almost 20 years. I didn't obtain my BS until this year. I had done well in my career without it but it was becoming too much of a limiting factor. I didn't much enjoy B&M schools due to the speed. It was just too slow for me. Online worked much better for me and since I did so well with my BS I decided to get my masters. I decided on the MSISA because security is hot and it's only going to get hotter. I have been working in the IT security field for 7+ years so I have a good background. I am set to start on Sept 1 and my intention is to complete the degree in 6 months. It's a pretty aggressive timeline but I'm hoping that my experience is solid enough to accomplish it. I became pretty adept at writing papers at TESC fortunately(unfortunately) and based on rebel's information started writing from the rubric at the start.
So that's it in a nutshell. I'll post more once I get started.
