I'm currently working on my B.Sc in computer science from a school that offers distance/independant learning. They are fully accredited. My rationale for this school rather than a traditional classroom setting was not cost (this school is not cheap!) but rather my need to keep a full time and support my family while I do this. I'm a little concerned that when I begin looking for a job, recruiters will look at my B.Sc as being inferior to one earned at a traditional school. Does anyone have a similar experience they can share, so that I can either be reassured, or otherwise at least know what I'm up against when I graduate? Any and comments are greatly appreciated.
Arsin, I would not worry about the perception of your degree. For your very first programming job, the name of the university and GPA will mean something. After that, the greatest factors are experience, knowledge and certification. Rich
