It’s hard to believe 3 months have passed since I’ve written a new article on Trees Full of Money!
Although I promised in my 2010 New Year’s Resolutions article that I would write more personal finance articles (and I have), over the last few months I’ve been working on another one of my goals for 2010…the pursuit of a graduate degree.
Here is an excerpt from that article:
Enrolling in a Graduate Degree Program:
In my article Are Online Degrees Worth Anything, I mentioned my desire to pursue an advanced degree over the Internet. After some careful research, I’m confident I will be able to find a quality program at a reasonable price.
I also intend to blog about my pursuit of an online graduate degree on Trees Full of Money. If you’ve been thinking about pursuing a degree online, maybe you’ll be able to learn something from my experience!
After a few months of “secrecy”, I’m happy to report that I have successfully narrowed down my choices of potential graduate programs and have officially accepted an offer of admission from the University of Massachusetts Amherst for their Part-Time Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) Program.
Now that I am finished studying for the GMAT exam (Graduate Management Admissions Test), writing admissions essays, and obtaining the appropriate professional recommendations, I can’t wait to start “blogging” again and share my “online” graduate school experiences. As always, I will continue to write articles of interest on money management, debt reduction, and environmental issues as well!
Having already taken my first class as an “unmatriculated” student through “UMass Amherst”, I’m pleasantly surprised by the effectiveness of the online learning environment and am very excited about the remainder of my classes.
Over the next week I plan to wrote more on the admissions process for graduate school, and share my tips on studying for the GMAT, writing essays, and balancing time between your personal, professional, and student lives.
