    So this has been a long time coming, but I had to make up my mind about the school I'm currently attending. Downgrading from a Bachelor to an Associate's degree program was a difficult pill to swallow. I will be attending another university in 4 months though. But in hindsight, I just couldn't justify spending more money I don't have to learn merely principles and best practices concerning web design. Stuff like that isn't going to get anyone a job in this industry as a web designer/developer/whatever one wants to call it. Students need application skills. And to my knowledge, most students who enter this field are not doing so because they want to "talk" web design, they want to do it. And this is where my university has somewhat failed. Online schooling has its pros and its cons. And if there's one thing I can say to anyone reading this, it is if you're looking into the online thing, no matter what you're major is, investigate. analyze, and ask questions before commiting anything to paper. Get on websites by students that evaluate colleges. They may turn out to be your most valuable resource. Don't ask employees of the college how they rank. It's their job to sell their employer, that's how they make a living. If it turns out that there are more people who discredit a school's online degree program, read the testimonials as there are tons of websites that offer these. Hope anyone finds this useful.
