    I am entertaining the thought of doing an MS in Information Security at SNHU (I live near their campus) and doing it as a hybrid. I get far more out of being in a real classroom and interacting with real humans than I do studying online...

    I also live close to the campus (15 minutes away). However, there is a big price difference going the campus route. I think that if I were fresh out of high school, I would want a B&M school experience for at least my bachelors. I got my associates degree this way and later attended several schools towards a bachelors degree (all classroom settings).

    At this time for me, online is more appealing due to my work schedule that sometimes involves international travel. Hence, I am interested in WGU or So NH University Online.

    WGU is appealing due to the price and ability to move through the courses at an adjustable pace. Certifications are a plus but do add to the workload and testing. However, if solely based on price and you do not take at least 8+ classes per year, both schools are the same $. So if you expect your pace to be 1 class every 8 weeks or 6-7 courses per year - they are both the same cost.

    SoNH would seem like the better name on a resume though?

    I go to WGU and I have total autonomy over my education it's fantastic but you have to put the work in.
    Currently enrolling into WGU's IT - Security Program. Working on LPIC (1,2,3) and CCNA (and S) as long term goals and preparing for the Security+ and A+ as short term goals.
