Thanks to everyone who has responded with your own stories so far. I am truly appreciating reading them and factoring your experiences in as I make my decision.
A couple points for additional data: I will be working full-time while doing this program, twice a week a night. From what little I can tell, it seems like people start commanding somewhere between $70,000 and $90,000 after completing this program but I’m *sure* that’s not guaranteed and not what every graduate ends up making. Like I said, I’m 33 now and making $50,000 so I feel like I have to do something to improve my chances of making a better income.
Thanks again for replying. I’ll keep checking back in to see if anyone else responds.
