Not Looking For Backdoor - Looking for Discount
Honestly, I don't want a Harvard degree through a backdoor. I want a cheaper education for the first two years of college.
This can either be done through online courses at HES or another school followed by the fulfilling the on-campus requirement. Or it can be done by going to community college for two years and then transferring to a four-year university.
The reason I looked into HES rather than other online schools IS because it has the "Harvard" nametag but, if I had to rephrase the question, I would put it like this:
"What's taken more seriously by employers: An online bachelors degree offered from a prestigious university or a degree from a lesser known college?"
And no, according to most employers, they don't look at HES and Harvard U as the same thing. This is because HES apparently doesn't require SAT scores.
