I just got my letter from Excelsior-- I am in as long as I pay the $800 enrollment fee, the $300 for a 1 credit information literacy fee, and I take one class through my home school. I have to finish up a stats class and at the end of this semester I will have a BA in general studies. For the same amount plus exorbitant gas prices I could get my English degree. Everything is so expensive. But I am almost done! Yeah! Rock on!
The math has held me back for years. It's not that I can't do it, it's just that I don't have the focus. It's hard to focus, but it just doesn't matter any more. I could be going to an eight day residency in February to STUDY and learn and meet fantastic people. No husband or kids for eight days.Of course I will miss them, and it will be fabulous to come home and apply my work and to study some more, but it will be nice for the break for all of us, I think! I don't feel bad for leaving my husband home for a week-- he travels a bit and I am here so much on my own with them!
