Well, I appreciate the great insight all of you seem to have on the subject of distance learning. I am planning to start a doctoral program in 2002. Now, since my wife won't let me get a second mortgage on the house for this; and since most of the reputable DL-RA programs cost upwards of $30,000; has someone found a source for scholarships for DL programs? Or are there less costly alternatives than say Capella, Walden etc.? By the way, I am thinking of doctoral work in either Human Services Administration or Public Administration. Thanks.
