Thanks to this wonderful forum and the sister site, I began my BACS from TESU last October knowing I could speed through remedial learning and quickly move to degree-focused material. I've been a professional developer for the last 25 years. I went straight into development after getting my MCP certification. I've added various certifications along the way. Now, I want to transition into data science, and feel the degree-path is warranted. Currently - 30 credits earned ASU (Calculus I) - 3 TESU (SOS-110) - 3 Sophia - 18 CLEP (from 25 years ago) - 6 I am trying to decide between the following two plans: Plan A: Non-RA: Sophia - 57 total credits Study - 27 total credits CLEP - 6 total credits RA: ASU - 3 credits TESU ePack - 18 credits TESU - SOS-110, COS-451, and capstone rounding it out Plan B: Non-RA: Sophia - 57 total credits Study - 27 total credits CLEP - 6 total credits RA: ASU - 3 credits TESU ePack - 6 credits TESU - SOS-110, COS-451, COS-351, COS-311, COS-111, COS-241, and capstone rounding it out If I take Plan A, I think I can finish my BACS by May. But, I will only have 4 grades on my transcript. The rest of the courses will show as "CR". Any experience from the community on if that would impact acceptance when applying to a graduate program, like the MSDS at UT?
