I had a job just out of college. It was a good job, steady paycheck, but I wasn't quite happy with my career choice. I wanted more options. I was fresh out of school and had a ton of student loans. I was working two jobs already and I didn't have time to spend continuing my education in the classroom. I wanted to go back to school on my terms and on my time.
Welcome to the world of online colleges. I successfully completed an online degree program in paralegal studies in under 2 years. I did this all while working 2 job and maintaining a social life and my sanity. I loved that I could work at any time of day or night. The teachers were available any time I needed them and if not, they were just an email away. Don;t get me wrong, you have to be self motivated and disciplined, but I wouldn't have don it any other way.
