    Is that it? I've got a spare 35 grand burning a hole in my pocket, maybe I'll do a year at Harvard. I sure wouldn't waste the money on buying a fake diploma

    I hope he doesn't look at ABW ever?

    If anyone is looking for a degree and wants to do it the right way, I say do it online. I have 2 courses left after the one I'm in now, and I'm carrying a 4.0 to this day. Easy peasy.

    You mean, I took years of calculus and computer programming courses when I could've just bought my diploma. Dammit! Is that what they mean by working smarter, not harder?

    Easy peasy? No way. Convenient, yes. Even though you were quite knowledgeable about the subject matter before you got involved, you have been putting in a ton of work and hours. You are definitely earning each credit you receive.

    Yeah these "Online Diplomas" are pretty laugh-able. Sometimes, however, I wonder if all the effort in getting a college degree could not be better spent invested in more targeted education. I feel that the work I have done with respect to aff. mktg and content mktg has gone a lot farther in many ways than any degree could (I have B.S., M.S., and B.A.S degrees). I think the ultimate education for someone pursuing aff mktg would be to go back (after working a minimum of 1 year on aff mktg) and take selected targeted courses in business, marketing and computer programming/technology - and some of those could be courses offered at a vo-tech or community college and others could be taken online, via webinar, or at conferences.

    We do not need fake diplomas/degrees to validate our life experiences. Any savvy individual or organization will see the value of our work, diploma or no diploma.
    Education, after all, is to prepare us for life and work. It's not the other way around. It's rather our achievements in life that would validate our diplomas and academic degrees.
