Re: University of Phoenix Masters degree
Rebecca Yound

    Thanks so much Lisa, I really needed to hear from you. I am
    going tomorrow night to sign the financial aid forms and I didn't
    want to spend the money if I couldn't get a job. I didn't even
    know that U of P had a program until I spoke with the hiring
    manager at our local school district. There are plenty of jobs
    in the school district here, I just wish we had a local
    university that catered to the working student as well as U of P
    does. I would much rather get a degree from a B & M school.Thanks again,
    Becky
