    Hey everyone,

    Roscoe suggested that we should have an area for people to list their achievements while members of DegreeInfo, and I couldn't agree more. Why should the doctors and half-doctors get all the glory? :D

    So anyway, if you've reached a milestone while a member of DegreeInfo, be it a certificate or degree (any level), please respond and list your milestone along with the school and area of study if you're comfortable sharing that. Even if you reached your milestone during the infancy of DegreeInfo, please share it as inspiration to everyone else.

    If you earn a certificate or degree in the future, please share that as a distinct thread and also here; this is strictly for listing member's achievements. Congratulations and other ancillary posts, however well-intentioned, will be deleted.

    So....who shall be the first? :)

    Wow! Quite impressive! Not just you but your kids as well! Were you the Capella University PhD learner in Organization & Management/Human Resource Management that was writing his dissertation on National Guard retention rates or do I have you confused with someone else? Either way, good luck on your dissertation defense!

    A.A. - Cypress College
    B.S. - Management - California Coast University - 2006
    MBA - Aspen U - in progress - completion - 2009?

    I have studied at various schools including the University of Iowa, UCLA, UCI,etc. CCU caught my interest, and I waited until they became formally accredited before enrolling with them. I got a hell of a bargain, I think I paid $79.00 a credit, so I completed my B.S. degree for something like $2,200.00. I am grateful to this board for educating me in the fine points of accreditation. NA or RA suit me fine. It feels great to have my degrees listed on my resume, and the feeling of accomplishment can't be beat.

    Thanks to DI! Folks, this is a great resource!!!!!! Take advantage.
