Has anyone attended an online university? - Was it worthwhile? How do you find the best "accredited" Univ?

I am in my junior year of college, have been going part time for years. Now I have moved to another state - out of state tuition and transfer of credits is no fun, and there's a baby on the way! Online ed sounds good but I don't know whether to trust it - will I be able to get a job with the resulting degree?

Since you have at least 2 years of college done, I'd try your hardest to finish at a traditional school. Most online schools are only regionally accredited by a single accreditor. Most traditional schools are nationally accredited by most, if not all, of the accrediting bodies... More
