    I am interested in your personal opinion. Which do you think is of more value:

    1. a honorary degree of a RA college or university
    2. a degree by a non-accrdited but legally operating school that is "earned" (not just bought).
  2. The honorary degree - because it comes from an accredited institution. I think there's also a positive perception that an "honorary" degree means that the person to whom it was conferred has some standing/status that warranted it.

    Impossible to answer, since legal, unaccredited schools range from the totally legitimate Bob Jones University to outright diploma mills that have found a temporary loophole in the law.

    If you provide the name of the unaccredited school, you'll get a much better answer.

    I agree. You're better off with a regionally accredited school, but there are a few unaccredited schools out there that have rigorous programs. If you do have a particular school in mind, post it's name on this forum.
