They also do an event every semester on campus the same way so yea networking is going to be crucial and help get me out of Oklahoma to the heaven that is the West coast.

Slow Friday at work so I'm bout to finish out week 1. So we had 3 discussion assignments (post your opinion on .... respond critically to 1 classmate you agree with and disagree substiantively with), the first 26 pages of the book, 30 minutes of lecture (which they post video, mp3, and even transcript of which is useful), 5 clinical articles to read, a self assessment assignment, draft the introduction of our term paper.

I don't remember for sure but I think a week/module locks out once the previous starts too. eek.gif

Your boy just taking it one assignment at a time, trying not to make it look as daunting as it really is and psych myself out. Go to the grade page and see that A by each assignment pop up, 1 at a time for ~20 months then I am done

Pro-Tip: When I give out assignments to large classes (>20 students or so), I don't have the time to thoroughly grade them. So I create a rubric full of keywords/buzzwords and basically skim the assignments to see if they mention those terms. I suspect your prof does the same, so just keep plugging the assignments with words you hear him mention or the textbook, and you should be straight.

That's good to know, and doesn't shock me. In the first "class," the intro orientation though Professor did reply to most discussion postings and assignments and evenif not there, when he graded it he'd give you a response there. There's 16 people in class now IIRC. It said she is in fact going to hand grade and critique our term paper draft, which is 100 pts and the last assignment I turned in, at like 11:57pm. Did good on all the discussion related assignments and criticals but wan't happy with that one. Have to figure out a better time management plan. Have twice as much reading to do this week and I didn't even watch last week lectures, about 45 minutes worth or so. Wake up call. I got it though

Anyone in education? I start a Pupil Personel Service Credential in counseling program this Thursday to have a credential. I'm also thinking of a EdD program right after but I have to take the GRE. For those of you who've taken the GRE what do you recommend? Thanks in advance.

I guess it depends on your learning style and own level of motivation, but I could argue this is more advantageous. She posts her lectures, either a video of them and/or a powerpoint guiding you through your listening, an mp3 file of just audio, and a pdf text transcript. If you went brick and mortar, you would have just seen or missed the lecture and that was it. This way I can go back whenever I need to.

@DocWatson She still hasn't graded but our first assignment so hopefully like you say she is swamped and just going to put in 100/100 points or whatever when she gets time. I still have to do better and stop procrastinating. Same time, I haven't missed an assignment so I'm happy with that going into work 3. Full term paper draft due this week and she didn't even grade and critique our intro drafts

I prefer online classes because I despise sitting in a class hearing the prof read the same exact powerpoint that's posted online

It does get a little overwhelming at times but I rather be stressed in my bed than in a desk laugh.gif

I don't know how every institution does it because obviously I only attend one, but USD/Blackboard made everything super streamline and efficient. I can do my homework, view the lectures, everything right from my phone exactly like how it'd look on a computer. Even the book has its own app which I can access on mobile (although they could have used PDF)

There are tons of schools that offer it so decide what's your priorities, cost, school ranking/reputation, location, duration of program, etc. then search that like, "Top Cheap Online MPH programs" or whatever. Usually usnews or bestcolleges.com have lists. When I was going to do that, I was going to do Grambling because I wanted an HNCU then I decided I wanted a better school so USC was my choice (and they were willing to accept me even with my horrendous undergrad GPA), George Washington, and UT I also looked at

USD does, makes you a premium LinkedIn member and they had their own site plus they do alumni hiring/job junting events annually or either it was every semester. Plus of course whateveryour major is join the national and regional clubs for it. I'll screencap what I was talking about when I get home.

for those in online programs, how do you go about networking and building rapport with classmates and professors? 

 

thats a big motivation for me attending in-person instruction...im looking for the career change (well enough of a change), so I'm hoping professors and or even classmates can help provide some of the insight, if they have any...

Anyone got a master's in public administration? I'm thinking about starting this in the next year or so? Either online or in person.

Just started so technically just week 3 of the first class that counts, but I think I'll still be able to do that. The group of classmates I am in with now generally will be with me all the way til graduation unless they or I take a break semester, but most importantly and it exists in almost every discipline is getting in the National and Regional clubs and going to their annual shindigs.

Degree finally arrived in mail today. Feels good to be done:Nthat

 

Good Luck to all of those just starting. It goes by fast so make the best of it. 

post #1309 of 1324
Fell off a little bit, but the professor worked with me on some late assignments so I still have an 86 over half the way through and we finally got that damn term paper out the way which is like over half our grade.
post #1310 of 1324
How's everyone doing? Just finished my first class, probably will end up with a high B, A is still mathematically possible but I would have to have gotten 100% basically on the last 8 or so assignments she is yet to grade which is unlikely. Still, a 3.5GPA in grad school while still going to work, being a father, working out again, isn't bad at all. happy.gif
post #1311 of 1324
Was going to make a post checkin in on the squad but got caught up w/ school.

I'm only taking 2 courses this term so I'm not overwhelmed at the moment w/ that. I've found it's be a little easier to juggle working fulltime, parenting, and going to school. Interested to see how the Spring is since I'm increasing my courseload, and the other professors might want me to actually read the book unlike my professors this term, their more hands on and learn by doing.

I was lucky since this was the intro I was able to half *** and just jump on on Monday (assignments for the week are always due Tuesday at 12:01am) and throw something together, with the discussions even just read everyone else's and say the same thing, differently. But the further I get along the more that won't work so this course I am going to make a real schedule for myself and get time in every day because ultimately I will have to get certified and prove my knowledge in this before I can make it a career so being clever and skipping non graded readings since they're not connected to a graded assignment won't serve me well.

I know absolutely nothing about the LSAT besides what I read in this article...sounds like Logic Games section is a beast, and you need to get a tutor to teach you.

I feel the same way. My Marketing professor literally said "I want yall to read the book, but realistically, I know you guys won't and it won't affect your grade..." I read the first four chapters not knowing what to expect in class, after that, haven't cracked the book open mean.gif I need to get on it and read more to better understand it but feel I'm already so far behind in readings though we don't use the book at all.

What else are you guys doing to prepare yourself outside of school? I just started the trails on Salesforce.com to learn that and I'm going to join the PMI and the local chapter.

Put it like this, the logic games do absolutely nothing to prepare you for law school, but it's a freaking monster. The main reason being it's time consuming. The other part is reading comprehension I believe and that's tough because you have to assume what the author of the text meant in order to answer correctly and by author, I don't mean the person attached to the story, I'm talking about the actual person for LSAT that wrote the passage.

First year is tough. LSAT tips are just to take a good prep program. Spend a long period of time with the study plan. I really don't think that there's a secret sauce there. It's just repetition, honestly.

I finished my MS in 2014 (started the thread when i was a young pup), but I will be applying for my MBA for 2019 matriculation. My plans are still the same as they were in 2012, but the difference is i got to the buyside a lot faster than I anticipated.

Aiming at HSW, Columbia and Booth for the MBA....

I'm hoping that my current work experience will help me get in to these schools. My goal is to join a special situations group similar to the one i'm at now, but at a megafund like TPG, Apollo, Blackstone, etc, then try to start my own fund after 6 or so years.

My girl is in her 3rd semester of a 6 semester (3 year) program. for a Masters in Counseling. Can't wait till she's done. She won't be making greenbacks, but it'll allow her to potentially start her own practice or child shelter... I want to help her with that, too...

A PHD is probably on the radar for her, but I think she'll go after that a little later.

Momb-dukes just told me she's starting her Masters in Education... 18 month program at Lamar. She's hoping to finish summer 2018. She got SMACKED when the recession hit... Her job cut her, and it was tough to get a new job b/c all the stuff she was going for, she had to have a certain education level. She was able to get to her job before the over-saturation of degrees in our society.

My dad was enrolled into an Auto CAD program... Unfortunately, he passed away last month. frown.gif

Sucks, b/c the whole famb would've been getting their school on. All good though.

I'm gonna name my first fund after him. pimp.gifpimp.gif
post #1317 of 1324
Repped all yall. Thanks for the input pimp.gif

@handullz Sorry to hear about your father. That's a dope way to honor him though. Hit me up when you start your fund, I've always wanted to work at a hedge fund nerd.giflaugh.gif

1st round for all. It's gonna tax my pockets, but I'd rather figure something out before Christmas break.

I'm gonna throw out some Consortium apps for backup schools, but honestly, if I don't get one of those five, there isn't much point for me to go to school.
post #1320 of 1324

Thinking about seeing which programs will allow me to obtain a joint degree in MBA and Master in Food Science(maybe something in the environmental science; Agriculture). I want to see how far I can grow my options with my undergrad in Marketing. 

 

Maybe look at going to two different schools split up the years that I attend the programs but I will take a hit/risk on the MBA side with the networking.

 

This would help out in the long run of running a business or product development for more opportunities
