I understand I asked for yalls opinions on the Associates. So that's cool.

Ironic that reading wasnt fundamental in this thread....she said she's continuing on to her bachelors....im damn proud of my associates degree & it will stay on my CV for life. I partied harder @ that graduation than the others that followed...go 'head girl, congratulations!!!
Yeah... I think everyone didn't see that part. I didn't plan on getting the Associates, I already transferred, I then had enough credits for the degree since most of my credits were from the community college they would send my transcript back.. I decided to partake in the ceremony since I was pregnant during my high school grad. I think this is like a 2nd chance lol

I read an article that associate degree holders make more money and more likely to get a job than bachelor degree holders. It really depends. Did you go for a technical degree or something liberal arts-y? If you got a technical degree then its totally worth it. If you got an associates in sociology...get more schooling, and change your major.
Yup I thought I'd just get the general studies but since I took all of the business classes they require for the associates at the University, they're getting me the Associates of Arts but in Business Admin, most people just get the General studies one.

Congratulations!!!! I graduate in May with my Associate's and I'm proud of myself. It is a half way step towards my Bachelor's. Keep going! And if you can, go for your Master's after you get your Bachelor's. I look at it like 3 steps towards the main goal: Master's.
Awesome!! I'm graduating in May too. I'm looking at it like the same thing. My parents just want me to continue through college don't take any breaks!

Community college can be a good place to earn cheap credits......you just have to make sure that your 4 year college or university will accept the credits before you take the course at community college.
Agreed!! Yup we have a 2+2 program so that's what I've been doing. & you have to keep in mind there may be a limit on how many transfer credits they accept
