Taking Classes After Graduation....Evaluation [#permalink] New post 17 Jun 2004, 10:37
Linda-

How do the top schools view the degree to which one takes classes (e.g. night classes) many years after graduating from undergrad?

Granted, I'm sure that they'll give a calculus class from....say....MIT...a bit more weight than one from East Appalachian State university.

However, is there any degree/rating scale to which they assess these courses? I know its best to take classes from an "accredited" university, but wondering if there is anything else they use to judge such courses?

Thanks.

It should definitely be accredited. And there is no question that an A from an tough-grading university is looked at a little differently than an A from a local community college. However, be practical. If you can't get to a name college, take it at East Appalachian State. That's better than nothing.

Good luck!
