I have completed my last paper for my MS – ITM from TUI. It was a great feeling and I felt the weight of the world lifted from my shoulders. That great feeling lasted almost five minutes because I completed my online application for NCU’s PhD program. I am very excited because I never thought I would ever get this far. I found this board in April 2001, which was two months after I started on my BS from CCU. Since that time I have completed two CCU degrees, a BS from COSC, and now an MS – ITM from TUI. Not bad for someone that wanted to drop out of high school in 1985! I want to thank everyone on this board for all the information they have posted; it made earning a degree easier and I appreciated the words of encouragement throughout the way. I will post my experiences with NCU when I start the program.
