Grad School?

Moore County does this cool thing where they team up with the local community college and UNCP to offer a Masters in K-12 Reading at SCC for their teachers. I had heard about it, but never got interested. This past year I researched going to UNCG for a Masters in Spanish or ESL, but knew that I wouldn't be able to afford the $1500 per class or handle the hour long drive each way. So when my colleague mentioned the reading cohort the other day I started asking questions. Classes are less than 30 minutes from here (less than 45 from home) and are only around $500 each! Everything is pre-planned and I can be finished sooner than if I went to UNCG. So it seems that I may be starting grad school this summer. I have started my UNCP application (again...8 years later) and researched everything that needs to be done before I can be accepted and enrolled. I may be crazy, but I think I'm going to do it.

Go for it! Then we can complain about grad school together!

But seriously, its probably a great investment. You really should go for it, especially if you're getting it conveniently and (relatively) cheap.
