so you were accepted into one MS program, took two courses, and then was accepted into the 2nd MS program and so you dropped out of the first one ?

why not continue with the first one ?              
just because the 2nd one has a better reputation ?              

did the two courses from the first transfer to the 2nd ?

My plan was to go to UIUC from the beginning but the decision process is much slower. That's why I got started at Springfield. Plus it's more expensive. They allow 12 credits worth of transfers. So I took 2 classes at Springfield which is cheaper. If the credits transfer (same school system, small 4cr per class, so I'm hopeful they will) then I'll continue at UIUC. UIUC is requiring me to drop UIS but there would be no reason to try to do both anyways.

In CS it's Carnegie Mellon, Berkeley, MIT, Stanford tied for 1st. Then UIUC in 5th. So pretty serious reputation.

Hi

I'm on the warpath per on this thread, thanks so much, guys! Finishing English Comp I and looking at how I can prioritize the rest. I have a few questions if that's ok? I'm copying this out of a private message and thought it'd be better to solicit more opinions. 


Qn 1) I wanted advice on how best to leverage 3rd party options for TESU BA with Comp Sci instead of COSC BSBA(see following post for TESU BACS Acad evaluation), would the same courses advised me to take from sophia still apply?

- I can place: English Comp I & II, Public speaking (into the TESU BACS Acad evaluation below)
- Only 50 to 70% sure about: Intro to Ethics(no course with the same name in TESU)
- The rest will fall under general education?
  • College Algebra
  • Intro to Statistics
  • Intro to Information Technology
  • Intro to Psychology
  • Intro to Sociology
  • Human Biology
  • Environmental Science

Qn 2) How does double counting in TESU work? for instance, if I took "TESU COS-451: Artificial Intelligencewould it count as both a general elective and a AOS elective?

Qn 3) Would you recommend the double majors in TESU? I'm look at BA CompSci + Math.

Qn 4) Is it quicker/cheaper to complete COSC business, then get a second CompSci degree at TESU?  

Second Baccalaureate Degree

Students who have received one baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited institution and wish to earn a second baccalaureate degree must:
  • Complete a minimum of 24 credits including the required capstone for the degree. These credits must be in the area of study and/or core of the degree. These credits must be earned after the date the most recent degree, regardless of academic level, was conferred.
  • Additionally, students must complete all other degree requirements as listed in the current Thomas Edison State University Catalog.

Quote: Wrote:Your only resolution (if you accept it) is to get your general education courses done first, get all of them as it shows you'll need it for COSC, EC, TESU, because that's what you're missing for the COSC BSBA anyways.  Here are your courses that you need all from Sophia, especially because - they're amazing and FREE!

**Project Management (If you wanted to, I think you have enough Business in the Area of Study for COSC)
