I agree! I haven't even finished my first BA but I have a spreadsheet listing ideas for 2nd (and 3rd, 4th, etc.) BA/BS degrees, the different Master's programs I'm considering, and certificates.

I few (2) more glitches in the platform software and both were fixed quickly.   They are very, very responsive to every email I've sent.

I should have about 3 units of competency done by next week, now that I have a pattern of study down and understand how it works.

I'm not taking a break over Christmas, although there may be issues with getting things graded.  We'll see.

Took off two weeks at Christmas, but finished two competencies and have started the third.  Now I'm back on track.  Must finish in two terms.

Fell off track - will have to do it in two terms.   Still that will be $2000 for the second term and my work will pay for $1500 of it.

I think it's doable in less than two, but I wasn't that dedicated.

I'm in. I start the March 4th date with the free term. How should I attack it?
I'm not sure I have any intention of ever finishing the MBA per se.... I've got my sights set on an HES degree in English. It was a free term and i figured - hey.... maybe earn some grad business credits, maybe they transfer in somewhere else or i pick up where i left off at Walden, should I ever actually want an MBA. It WOULD be fun to troll my boss who's always waving around his MBA to establish superiority by saying we're not capable of understanding his bad business decisions. I wonder what he'd say if I waved an MBA right back at him?
But anyway....how should I attack it? I'm in the Project Management version.

Good for you - I was in but soon realized an MBA was not for me (at any school).  - GoodYellowDogs is doing the Walden MHA vs the MBA, but there is a Walden MBA thread here: https://www.degreeforum.net/mybb/Thread-...untability

I'm doing the MHA - not MBA - but there is a string about the MBA.

Don't get behind.   Really understand the platform (Tempo) and how it works, where to look for stuff, etc.

Okay. It is just about to strike midnight on my free three months. I submitted three assessments today and if things work out right, I will have completed 18.75 graduate credits in that time. Whoo Hoo! We will see if the last round of assessments pass without the need for revision. I could have done more, but the first month was Christmas and so I really did all of this in two months. Now it is time to apply for principal certification with the bag full of free credits.

I'm doing the MBA but you are way ahead of me. I did actually read everything though... while trying not to fall asleep.
