This is the last week of the Winter term at NSU, my first as a graduate student. I haven’t enrolled for the Spring term because this school is a joke. For one of my classes, the first question of the first assignment was:

One of the components of a computer is its CPU. What is a CPU and what role does it play in a computer?

My other classes aren’t better. One professor has me answering questions at the end of the chapter. Another has me embedding images in web pages. This is grad work, peeps! I hear one of my classes spends 12 weeks covering the OSI model. That’s mierda de toro.

I think I will be taking a break from classes so I can spend some time studying for CISSP. Time much better spent, no? My advice for anyone thinking about grad school, pick a program that will challenge you. Life is too short to be wasting 12 to 24 months on crap education.

  1. I agree that the CISSP certification is a better use of your time. But, if as a NSU employee the schooling is free, you should take it.

  2. I don’t know. My time is more valuable than the free courses. I’d rather pay to get better content rather than waste my time comiendo mierda.
