When the idea of going to school first came about, I had every intentions on doing classes online. I took the Compass test, went to see the Advisor. During this time I informed the advisor that I wanted to do this all online. She informed me this was not smart, she said the success rate for these classes are pretty much none.
I went ahead and signed up for classes on campus, and I was going to do them in the evening. After I did this I got to thinking, sometimes when trying to find work, most want those to work at night. So if I found a job (still looking) I would have to turn it down because of conflicting schedules.
I started to think some more, and hundreds of people do their schooling online, hell I home school my daughter. If I can school her, I should be able to school myself. If I find a job, I need to have the flexibility to go to school whenever, even if it is 3 o’clock in the morning.
So, today I went to campus, and had my classes changed to online. I got stuck seeing the same lady. She was not happy about me switching, she kept stressing the success rate, I was about to pull out my paper work about the over all success rate of the school… They only have a 7% graduation success rate, and 14% of the students transfer out.
As I told her if one is determined to succeed they will. I have the ball in my playing field what I decided to do with it is up to me, I am 32 years old my daughter will be 10 soon. I have to make something with myself NOW, even if that calls for busting my ass studying and making sure the grades stay up.
