This is the answer that I was looking for!  Big Grin It's something that's good to know. But I think I won't write off statistics yet and put it at the very end of my Sophia journey if I'm not all too burned out. ss20ts has a good point about grad school. I'd like to keep that option open.

When I started at UMPI last August, I had a plan. I am changing careers was looking at moving in IT project management. I loooove project management, but learned I really am not into IT. It's just not my thing. So I started looking at other industries to find one where I can work in project management. The industry I have experience in and really do enjoy is construction. I'm now enrolled in a construction management certificate at LSU and will be moving onto a master's in construction management and a graduate certificate in project management at RIT. I now need to have 15 credits in math and science - yikes! In the Coursera certificate I'm working on right now, there's a LOT of stats in one of the courses. It was amazing to me to actually put that knowledge to use. I used to be one of those people who said I never used math. Not anymore! I'm using it daily. This was not a path I had expected to go down at all. I was really set to go into IT and pretty much even had a job lined up once I finished grad school next year. Life changes!

So are you no longer doing the MAOL at Brandman or UMPI?

Nope. It's not needed for my industry. Part of me wants to complete it, but it won't gain me anything so I am not putting my time or effort into it right now. Maybe in the future.
