Hi all, As part of my career plans I'm making a lateral career move into the Feds (local now). I was nudged into pursuing a CJ degree. I asked and was given a very generic answer as to if prestige matters for hiring purposes. I was told, "No, it just has to be RA and in CJ, concentrations don't matter and school ranking doesn't matter." I asked coworkers and general workers and they all said yes, prestige would matter as well as GPA and work experience (which I have covered). if it matters I am going for Analyst positions with possible eventual translation/intel work So I have narrowed down a few choices and I know one stands out way more than the other 2, which is why I am asking this question. M.A. Criminal Justice, AMU (no conc) $11k approx. M.S. Criminal Justice, U Cincinnati (Crime Analysis conc) $21k approx. M.S. Criminal Justice Administration, Tiffin University (unsure about conc) $21k approx. AMU is the cheapest by quite a bit, but Cincinnati is very highly ranked and Tiffin is decently well-regarded as well. I'm not a LEO and don't have 20 yrs of LE experience, so I'm thinking prestige may actually matter for me. WDYT?
