But should that be my biggest deciding factor? The problem with Sac State is the schedule. It is a hybrid program that would require in-class commitment. The other programs are online and offer much more flexibility.
Another big factor is that I’ve already been accepted to the Sac State program. Yay me! And the other two being online have rolling admissions and I can apply pretty much anytime.
I have a lot to ponder and I feel like I should just walk way for a while. Take a break from all of the analyzing, number crunching, and planning. Just go with my gut and dive in.
