Now that I’m done, I have to ask myself: would I do this again?
Basically, after taxes and stipends from my district, I have got this degree for (almost) free. I like that. I like that a lot.
But, was it worth it? Was it worth having the fight Lamar trying to get a straight answer out of them? Was it worth catching representatives in bold-faced lies? Was it worth the BS assignments that were worded so poorly that even the TA couldn’t explain what to do?
Honestly, no. I would have taken my money elsewhere. A different school. Something other than Lamar. Every time I walk into my teacher’s lounge at school and see the poster advertising the program, I want to throw it away. Every time I get an e-mail from the district promoting the partnership, I want to respond by sending them the link to this blog.
I skipped my graduation. I passed on the pomp and circumstance. Why? Because I hated the program so much that I refused to give them any more of my money.
Please, if you are wandering on my site after doing a random search engine of the Lamar Academic Nightmare, please go through and read a snippet of my saga. E-mail if you have any questions. And good luck.
