I was about to sign up for classes for the spring and realized that I have only one more class and I will have completed the requirements for the EdS at Liberty. I told myself that I would make the final decision at this point of whether to finish the EdD or take the escape hatch and bail out with an EdS degree. Liberty offers that option. I am having such a blast doing this, plus I have a cool idea for a dissertation, that I think I will take the plunge and go for the EdD. However, there are no guarantees that a doctorate will make me an extra dime, so I am soul searching to be sure I want to do this. My out-of-pocket cost is really low, though; probably around $10K when all is said and done. Any advice?
