My Other Self Posted June 16, 2014 Share Posted June 16, 2014 (edited) Hi everyone, I'm still about 3 years off until grad school so I'm (obviously) thinking ahead. At this time, I was hoping I could receive some advice. My college path has been anything but "normal". I'm 27 and will be transferring to the CSU Chico online degree completion in Sociology next Spring. I work full-time and have to support myself 100%. My job is a standard M-F office job which I detest. I've been going to school at night and online for the past 6 years at a local community college, mainly getting my Gen Ed out of the way. I love school - it's sort of my "zen" place. I've realized recently that this is what I want to do with my life, so after I complete my B.A. the next step is grad school. At this point I'm not sure if I want to go into administration or student affairs, but I figure i have plenty of time for that now. Given my full-time work schedule (and starting next Spring, full-time school as well), getting any sort of experience as an undergrad is next to impossible. One reason of course being that the program is entirely online (which I have to do). How important is this in the long run? Is it something I need to worry about, or just focus on keeping my GPA respectable (currently a 3.3)? I appreciate the feedback. Thanks!
