That's 01/01/16 for those of you in Europe.
It's almost that time. Just called the school to find out what bar my mentor is passed out in since I have yet to hear from them, they said that undergrads get mentors first and due to the time of year it could be January 4th before I hear from one (in fairness, I did apply on Dec 15th and was cleared to start on the 21st, so sort of late notice). No sweat on the mentor deal.
I finished up the BSIT-Sec this past May, and since my Cisco certs are good for another 13 months and my MCSE is good until November, I decided to tackle the master's degree in the mean time. I called the business college first for the MBAITM, but after some thought and a few conversations I opted for the MS...it's a better fit for me.
I decided to get a head start and work on some tasks for JIT2, LYT2, and TFT2...thanks markulous for confirming those are the opening classes. None of the tasks seem terrible, and LYT2 Task 3 is very close to what I did my Tech Writing and Capstone on for my bachelor's, so copying and pasting with a little rewording has yielded about six pages on that task so far.
I'm going to shoot to have it done in six months. I have time every day at work to research and write, and then I can put in a few hours each night when my girlfriend will let me. I did 31 units in three months to finish up the bachelor's (including C173/C169 ), so it's not inconceivable to work at roughly half that rate.
More to follow...
