I just got an email from San Jose State University. They accepted my application for their Library & Information Science Program at the Fullerton campus. (wow…they’re very efficient…I just sent in my application few weeks ago )
Now it’s decision time! Which school do I want to go?
-Better reputation, better program
-More resources and connections
-Expensive tuition (FT and PT pay the same tuition)
-Time consuming, have to spend more time going to campus for classes
-Harder (I heard they have a lot more presentations, group projects…etc.)
-Need to finish 2 extra requirement classes before school begins (which means I have to start taking summer school this year! )
-Cheaper tuition (almost 50% of UCLA tuition)
-Distance education, most classes are online courses. So I won’t have to take more time off from work
-Easier (well, I heard on line classes require more homework too…but that depends…)
-Comparatively not as famous as UCLA
-A bit far from where I live
Well, I don’t know how library world views the schools you get your master degree from. I don’t think it’s that important once you attain the degree. But I need to find out more info.
