Although I applied in December of 2004, I just got a call from NSU accepting me into their DBA program. I have no idea why it took a half a year. I must have fallen through the cracks. Because I was not ready to start a program anyway, I only called recently to follow up on an answer. Wore this topic out (NCU vs. NSU, Online vs. Residency, DBA vs. PhD, Professional vs. AcademicO back in February on this forum as have many others, but now I just need to decide whether I'll do NCU or NSU.
