At the finish line - switching from TESU to EC

For reference here are the two Syllibi

EC: https://excelsior.campusconcourse.com/vi...e_id=31826

Wow. I'd much rather just write the TESU capstone, than have to do an Ethics and Diversity paper, the research paper AND an "oral presentation of capstone research". I rather doubt the EC paper will be all that much shorter anyway.

But we have different monsters in our closets. Oral presentation is one of mine.

I agree, that looks like more work than the TESU paper I had to do.

But if "cheaper" is what you need, do what works best for you personally. Even though that EC course looks like more work, I can see doing more work to save money in some situations, depending on how much you can save.

That's the thing: TESU's residency waiver is more, but EC's tuition is more.  So I'm not sure EC is much cheaper.  But if it is, then go for it.

Well. MAP came back. They've decided that my Arts and Sciences Depth isn't good enough even though I have the credits for it. Basically if I were to apply my upper level religion courses there I'd have to finish the rest in religion, etc.

Also they told me if I were to go with a BALA my computer science credits wouldnt even count. So they want me to complete an additional 18cr where the BALS at TESU I know I'm complete.

BAH. Schools.

Well the point was to try and avoid as much of the Residency waiver fees as possible. Oh well.

How about the BSLS instead?  With CompSci?
