    Man...the last year absolutely flew by. I can't believe it's all over. I spent years dreaming of getting this degree, while I worked at another job. Now I've got the degree and can't believe it's done. Great ride tho...I would totally do it again.

    Oh and my SR year was prolly the most fun cuz I just got to focus on CS courses. No physics/bio/speech bullshit....just computers.

    Actually its Experience + Degree > Certs, since Certs are dime a dozen.

    I'm trying to get into KTH in Stockholm to their Masters of Science in Engineering and Management of Information Systems.
    I'm hoping 2008 start. And I can work for our office in Stockholm for the time I'm there.

    Oh yeah, tuition is free :eek3:

    Sorry guys, been busy as all hell and abandoned my thread. :o

    I nailed my 70-290 exam on the first try a couple weeks ago. I'm holding off on the 291 for a bit, since i think it would completely kick my ass. Just started working on 70-350 ISA Server as the elective, so progress is moving along. :)

    Yup. Two more months of class, and five exams to go.
