16-week terms is what killed it for me at traditional schools - I just could not keep my interest going for that long.  When I switched to a different (expensive, private) school that had all kinds of different terms (10-week was the most popular, but I also took a 5-week weekend "intensive"), I found I did MUCH better.  Once I changed jobs to something that didn't have tuition reimbursement, then I was out of luck.  Until I found this forum.

Honestly, I find even 12 week terms to be a drag. Wish I had planned in more APU classes (they've got many with 8-week terms)

Whew, okay...

Both my Policy course and Intro to IS course project 4s came back, with 100% for each!

On top of that, my policy professor asked if he could use/share my paper (along with two other students' papers) as a model for next term. I knew I'd do well on the paper, but I'm surprised it did that well. No complaints!

Very exciting way to end the term.

Official grades were posted for both courses, and I got As in both. So I'm officially a 4.0 grad student, at least until the next term ends Big Grin

Oh, and now my OmniTranscript is updated to include grad credits Smile

Same. Harvard's terms are 16 weeks, and because of the holiday, I had one that was even 17 weeks. TESU's were 12 just barely ok - I am soooo dead after about 8 lol. I took summer sessions at Ocean for some of my sciences, and 5 weeks is brutal, however, it's by far my preference too.

I'm one week in to my Summer term, taking "Introduction to Cyber-Physical Systems Security" which satisfies a required "flexible core" course, making sure we're well rounded Wink

only one course this summer unfortunately.

It's actually a pretty interesting class, even though it has nothing to do with my professional field. I'm 2/3 done with the first project due june 2nd (part 3 is making me pull my hair out again), but i think so far so good?

i've built a strong relationship with one person from term one who has joined me in this course, and a lukewarm relationship with another term 1 person in this course.... so it's nice to have shared experiences with folks along the way -- something that i haven't really had in the alt-credit world (outside of this forum, but we're all on such different paths here on the forum)
