    • Thanks teeky. I really dont have the time to go to school at night because I work during the day,pick up my daughter from school, and cook my meals for my family. Plus I cant really drive at night. My vision wont allow me. But I am really interested in medical billing or some kind of office training. I currently work in retail and sometimes you dont go nowhere in that field. No raises for us right now. Pityful economy.

    • Teeky said it right. I just want to bold the Dedication and Focus part. My daughter took a course in the class and a course on-line. She did great in the class course. But she really messed on with the on-line course. She miss logging on one day, then one week and then she just got so behind, etc and really just lost the momentum and gave up.  Although she is very mature and would never waste my money, it happened, even though she had good intentions. But, it was cheaper on me. estatic

    • I love the online classes.  It’s time-consuming to have to actually go to class.  I will be honest with you though, it has been my experience that they can be slightly harder than the traditional ones.  As others have said, you need to be focused and disciplined.  

      I really like them, though.  They still have some group activities like the classroom.  We used online chat through blackboard and it was pretty cool.  

      Go for it, if it’s what you want. I love the fact that I can take my laptop anywhere and do my work.  It’s very rewarding!!!  

      good luck!

    • I did one of my clinical nutrition classes in the classroom and the subsequent one online with the same teacher. It was great to be able to do all my work from home and not have to get in the car. I also loved being to do the work during the time of day I am most alert and able to study.

    • I did my entire Bachelor’s degree online and most of my MBA online.  I have 4 classes to go and just decided to take one class on campus.

      You do have to be dedicated and focused (as was metioned).
