First my Dad felt I was rushing to get married (Never mind that he'd insisted when I was 17 that by the time I reach my age, I should have given him 2 grandkids for him to spoil). Then my acclaimed alma mater university refused to send my transcripts to the schools I had applied to. As if that was not enough, I had not taken my TEOFL exam which was required to apply.
Its now June. I lost the admissions because my transcripts never arrived even though my university claims they have sent it. My father has finally agreed to let me get married BUT at his own convenient time, and his own way (he has just declared he doesnt want us to print invitation cards - imagine that!). Of course Vicky did not pursue his own admission since I wasnt going.
I have a job I am comfortable at, but might soon leave because I will have to be the one to move over to Vicky's side. I really don't know what the future holds - I don't see myself as one of those strong Amazonian women that combine school with bringing up 2 kids and running a job all at the same time (just because my mum can doesnt mean I can, right?).
I had begun to despair that I might never do that Masters degree in the nearest future, until someone sent me a url for an online university. And the thought stuck! Why not get an online masters instead? Why not search for a cheap one, something that wont take too much of my time and money? And the search began!
www.uopeople.org is a free online university that is available to the whole world. However, there are only two courses - Computer Science (BSc and Associate) and Business Administration (BSc and Associate). They are currently not accredited, and do not receive credits transfer either. Check them out for more details.
I found two sites that compile all the information you need - ELearningSite and All Learn.
They have everything you need to search for!
Explore people! You might be busy all the time but time is passiing you by - every worker's nightmare is working for ten years and some young over-educated kid takes their place because their qualification had become extinct!
