I want to get into Computer Science, do people in the field respect an online degree?
Basically I want to go to school, really bad, so bad it hurts. I love coding, I studying programming languages as a hobby so it doesn't make much sense that I'm not pursing a degree in CompSci. I having a hard time enrolling into my local community college. I don't have time to jump through their hoops anymore, I really don't. I'm a new dad, with a 7 day a week job. I've tried for the last year to enroll, register for classes, and get in, but something stupid always stands in my way. Placement test, or a new test, or they need copies of my tax returns... tons of useless hoop jumping for bureaucratic BS that I don't have TIME or patience for. I jump through their hoops, and I ran around in circles again by advisers and staff. I've done their tests THREE TIMES NOW, and every time they can't find it, or lost the results, or there is a new test. I'm almost about to give up. I've heard bad and good things about online schools like Devry and Phoenix. I can't afford to blow a couple of years and a few grand on a useless degree, in fact I won't. I want to consider it because they actually call and hound me for my money and time, while CSCC often hangs up on me while I'm on hold. So do people in software development actually respect a degree from a for profit school? Or am I'm just doomed?

I do not know who the people are who... More
