I’m in a bit of a dilemma, and would appreciate any advice you all can provide. I’m currently an undergraduate, and am pursuing a double major in history and political science. I currently have a 4.0 GPA. Due to a large amount of AP and college credits I earned in high school, I recently discovered that I can graduate in three years with these two majors without an extremely demanding course load or obscene extra tuition payments.
I plan on applying to law school – but, with the legal job market as it is, I am considering other options during that gap year between college and law school, rather than apply straight out of undergrad.
One of the programs I am considering is a one-year Masters Degree in Political Management at George Washington University. I fell in love with the program – but I found out that it is online, which would save me housing costs.
Basically, my concern is with the online factor – when a school is as reputable as George Washington University, does an online program make it lose its luster?
Thanks for any insight you all can provide.
