When I obtained my associates I had always figured I would continue on with my education. Real life then hit me for a loop and my education was pushed to the bottom of the list. Between work and kids, there really was no time for me to go back to school. Finally I knew I wanted to go back to school, I had heard so much about online education that I finally decided to look into it. I enrolled in the University of Phoenix and suddenly the degree I thought I would never get to recieve was mine. I even continued on for my Masters. I found that the University of Phoenix was good, I had some good facilitators and I had some nice "classmates" which was important as every class stressed working in a group. I found that certain subjects that I was never good at in class were easier for me to understand online since I could go back and review over and over instead of a professor rushing towards the next subject. I think that it takes alot becuase there is no one pushing you, you need to want it on your own but the University of Phoenix did provide the tools necessary in order to do just that. If I had any complaints it would be that I found, expecially in the MBA program that the set up was so exact that the classes became boring as each class no matter what the topic was the exact same format, even the papers were done in the same format so by the time I finished I was happy, I gre bored with the same format over and over. Even still I am thankful that I was able to finish school without having to take more time away from my kids and I would recommend an online education to others.
