ayshaface Posted April 24, 2020 Share Posted April 24, 2020 Hi everyone! I've been accepted into BC and University of Washington for the upcoming school semester. Part of me is really wondering and considering whether I should instead attend an online school considering the following factors : 1. School, regardless of what other measures are taken, are not going to look the same after this epidemic. Will we have to wear face masks when attempting to accrue our internship hours? Be 6ft apart? Part of what I was so against online schools at the onset is because I want the "school" experience; will most of this be removed anyway under the umbrella term of being "preventative measures"? 2. We will be entering the worst job market since the Great Depression, and school is EXPENSIVE. I had estimated taking out approximately 50k in loans as a result of these programs (either), and I already have 37k in debt. Should I just go to a cheaper online school? 3. It's been speculated and confirmed by many doctors that there will be a second wave of this pandemic in the Fall. Are we just going to be switched back over to online schools any way? I don't want to pay a premium to only complete online classes any way, away from my family, away from my friends. If it's going to be transitioned over to this any way (and I've heard the majority of schools will NOT reimburse for the services you're paying for but not receiving, UW included in this list), should I just get ahead of the game? Looking for anyone's thoughts. ❤️ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
