    I've been tarred with the brush, RAM - and it's not coming off. It's no different than saying "I've heard that about Jews, Catholics, Blacks etc." Imagine what would happen on DI if I ever dared say "Harvard was very rude to me. I've heard that about Americans."

    Wonderful place, this Global Fraud they call the Internet. I've been on it 20 years now and met all kinds of people.... Bah!

    Rude Canadian? Seems oxymoronic to me. During the nine years we were involved with the Edinburgh Business School, we had three people handling incoming calls in response to advertising . There was real competition among them to answer the calls from Canada -- inevitably the friendliest and nicest folks -- and they did much better on the exams, thus stayed in the program longer, which was good for our bottom line.

    It was a joke John Bear. Don't make me sell my prized autographed books that I got from you on Ebay, or amazon.com! I guess you lost your sense of humor. Whatever!!! Have a nice day.

    To the resident gadfly. I just ran across that word while studying western philosophy and political thought. That is some type of philosophical description of Socrates isn't it? God that is a dry and boring subject. I see why they made him drink hemlock. They wanted to watch him suffer.

    I'm not personally offended by what you said, Ann. I see it as yet another generality, an undeserved slur against all 34 million Black, Jewish, Catholic, left-handed Canadians.

    As you may have learned in philosophy class - all generalities are false - including the one I just wrote.

    Yes there are rude Canadians. I myself am a very nasty bald Canadian misery and am rude (mostly) to liars, frauds, narcissists and other overweening pompous individuals given to exalted opinions of themselves. Such individuals can thank their lucky stars that truly rude Canadians - those who elevate rudeness to an art - are such a very small minority.

    As to Canadian bacon - I never touch the stuff. I have chosen not to eat pork - not for religious reasons, but because I don't think it's good for me. I don't drink Canadian or other beer either -- for the same reason, and I hate hockey. I'm a poor sort of Canadian, I guess -- but a loyal one anyway, regardless of my own rudeness. Please don't label all Canadians with my tag. It doesn't belong to them. Most have done nothing to deserve it, whereas I have worked hard for it.

    If I can get all (French) Canadian, I think that Ann has gotten herself hoist by her own petard.

That will take me an additional 30 credit hours (1.25-1.5 years). I am pretty burnt out with classes too, plus I can get into several regionally accredited graduate schools etc. I'd love to have a regional degree, but I know it is not mandatory and the department of education, etc., recognizes DETC. What would you do?
    Could you tell us which regionally accredited graduate schools will accept a nationally accredited undergraduate degree?

    That's what HETA is, Ted. All RA schools listed there say they'll do so.

    Oh, come on, Ted! You've been around here long enough! You should know better than even most of the "veteran" posters here!

    :)

    I realize some folks would rather RA schools turn their notes up at NA diplomas, but I disagree with that approach. There are known rigorous NA programs that folks have gone on about at great length here (Aspen U. in the past, for example?).

    I would think RA schools should be allowed the option of accepting NA diplomas at their discretion, and I would hope with the sense to examine the applicant's completed program/individual outcomes before approving entry. There are a good number of NA schools that will provide decent Bachelor's programs at a reasonable cost, and I see nothing wrong with allowing those students to move forward with an RA graduate program if the intended school is willing.

    Really? Who? I've been posting here for a dozen years (and at several other sites). I've posted more than 20,000 times on these fora. No one is more vociferous about the limitations imposed onto degree usage by national (instead of regional) accreditation, and I'm pretty active in such discussions. I don't recall anyone saying that, much less "some folks," which implies it is a commonly held position.

    No, it isn't that RA schools shouldn't accept degrees and credits from NA schools. It's that the often don't that gets pointed out. Those positions are distinct, and only the latter is taken, to my knowledge.

    Hm. I guess I'm getting cynical in my old age, at least as to higher education . Well, and Canadians, Johann! I haven't forgiven you for Stephen Harper yet! Before I shelled out megabucks for a graduate degree from an RA school, I would exhaust every other possible avenue in the DETC world for the degree I'm after. Unless the goal is to teach at the University level, almost unattainable anyway these days, a DETC degree is probably the better, or at least less bad, investment of time and money.

    And if there were no alternative to the RA masters or doctorate, I'd probably look for a different career. In many cases, RA degrees are JUST TOO EXPENSIVE!

    Yes, and much has happened. I gave up on the University of London, no reflection on them though, and got my LL.M. from Taft Law in something I thought I could use. But no, I got roped into my current job and will likely retire from it and never do tax.

    Well, maybe when I'm retired and weary of telenovelas!
