Run into some old friends from another group or board? Want to do a little schmoozing, talk over old times? Or just some off topic stuff, then this is the place.

I have made it through three secessions now each one is five weeks long and usually two classes
at a time. I made the Chancelors list with a perfect 4.0 so far and will have my Associates done
this summer of 2010 and summer 2011 my bachelors is done

I didn't even know there was a chancellors list

man 8-10 to ten units in five weeks is crazy sometimes... on top a full time job and family to deal
with.

Congrats on making the Chancellor's List, Jackal. Keep up the good work!

update I finshed the year with the 4.0 intact and heavilly engrossed in my major studies.

I got a grant through the state and had to switch to a California universty to qualify but
was able to retain all of my units. I am still working full time and taking about a 20 unit a semester
load. Basically my social life is gone and i don't even have real TV right now. I should graduate next
june with a Bachelors of Science in Heath Care Adminstration and Bachelors in Science in Psychology
with Honors. My company accepted my application to start the intial management development process.

I am hoping to get hired into the medical adminstration field right away but experience might prevent
that. The Psychology degree I am not sure of its another three classes or so to get;however it might be
more impressive in the interview process to have it?

I know a few of you are professionals from this site. Do think dual degree is very vauble enough to the hiring process?
any thoughts ??

Howdy Vikings Fans ..

well I got divorced in 2010 after a almost twenty year relationship failed..

I took some time off from school because I had to sort through some things
and take care of my kids ... etc etc...

I have been plugging away at school ,and I should graduate with honors the week
before Christmas or Feb. 12, 2013.

My degree is Business Healthcare Management, and I am going straight into MBA
program. I know if I take a break it will be hard to go back.

Congrats! Does that set you up to run a doctor's office? MBA to run a large group maybe?

I am leaning towards managing a nursing home or hospital admin..

my ex sister was a nurse RN who went into that and makes a very very
good living..

I don't care about being rich but money is a good tool to have in life.
I wouldn't mind retiring semi early in life and being able to play golf
and travel some. I also would like to help my kids in their lives.

Going back to college now myself, community college. Going to get my associate's this semester.

:)

I got a 3.9 last semester and I'm shooting for a 3.5 now, I think I can get 3 As and a B right now. :)

Because I was 3.5+ cumulative for my 4 semesters, I was in the top 10 percent of the community college system and joined Phi Theta Kappa. Yay!

Vikings fans are smart!
