This means that it will be another 10 years, AT LEAST until I finish an engineering degree. </i/But where will you be in ten years if you don't do it?This was a deciding point for me when I was going back to school. When I got out of high school, I said - if I go to college, I'll have to go part time and I'll be 30 before I'm through. And besides, some wonderful man is going to come along and support me for the rest of my life. Well, the wonderful man came along, but I'm still working. And sure enough, I got to be 30 without a college degree.At 40 or so, I started taking college classes, part time, in a non-traditional environment. I graduated at age 47. By that time, I was doing it more for me than for any benefits that I would gain at work. It was a long haul, and I only took more than one class a term one time. I did have some industry courses I'd taken earlier that were approved for credit, and took some CLEP tests to get additonal credit, but took all the classes that were required for my major.If what you want is an engineering degree, I think you should go for it, even if it does take ten years. If business is what you want then go for that. I always thought that my BS in Management was appropriate - since so much of management seems to be BS.Rose
