    Short time reader, first time to register and post

    Hello everyone.

    I've been reading here, specifically about CLEP exams, and now that I'm actually enrolled in school I decided it was time to participate.

    I wanted a B&M school with some regional name recognition, that offered a Health Info or Health Services Management program, and whose online degree would be indistiguishable from the traditional path. I stayed local, so that I could theoretically take on campus classes if needed, or if I changed major.

    I chose Philadelphia University , and transferred in 33 credits from community college. So I'm on my way.

    I'll definitely post my experiences. Would a little "summary" of what I've gleaned so far about the program and its majors be appropriate? It seems many here choose mostly online schools that are more oriented to build your own degree - I wasn't sure if my small private B&M school even 'counted,' although my degree is online.
