DONE!

Three and a half months at WGU, five months since obtaining my AAS, and I'm finally done! Just filed my graduation application this morning, and I've got a call with my mentor slated in a few hours.

I want to offer my sincerest thanks to everyone on this forum who provided me with any information about the DIY degree concept. Even moreso to those who really gave me the crash course into obtaining a degree fast and cheap. Prior to finding this site, I was looking at spending five more semesters and $15,000 more just wrapping up a Bachelor's. Instead, I spent $3,500 and less than a semester.

I'll have to make a new thread soon. I'm going to take a week off from researching school and do what I like...which is research and study. I've got a month to decide which hill to climb next, be it the MS Cybersecurity at WGU or an MBA at another school, but I haven't decided just yet.

And it started happening again... with this thread... haha, every other thread works fine! *Weird*

OK, nevermind, I guess something fixed itself....

Congrats Thorne! Your thread and jsd's are great info/sources for people looking into WGU and their programs.
Good luck on your Masters, whichever one you decide on. BTW, why MBA at another school and not at WGU?

I don't have the requisite experience for the WGU MBA. They want three years in business, and I'm interested in starting before I'd wrap those years up.
