Rich's posting Rich, You stated: "Rather, that it is a difficult and rare event. (The 7% figure can be found on the school's website, BTW.) But even if he was talking about you, the information you related regarding your other qualifications are not the things that would make up for a lack of a master's." If you read the posting, you would have seen I have a master's of Public Administration (MPA). I am working towards a computer science related degree to add more bite to my resume. Also, if you read my posting, you would have realized I HAVE been to the TUI website, BTW. And yes, he was addressing me, as his reply was targeting my statement to someone else. I am really disappointed in the demeanor all of those responding, except for one, have taken. I guess I hit a nerve. I apologized for my rash response, I see a few of you do not have the character to respond in kind. I think I would be better off looking elsewhere than "The Union", as I see there is a mindset that is rather distasteful to me. Is it really the goal of "The Union" to turn off potential students and discourage them? Is this what academia at "The Union" is about?
