Thoughts on a 2nd Undergraduate Degree

    True! I probably will work to get that work experience, but it's just foggy what type of work is appropriate as "work experience". Unless it's suppose to be broad intentionally.

    Yes, it is intentionally broad. In general it should be a professional responsible job. But as I said my H went to Wharton and there were people who were engineers, a fighter pilot in the Navy, an opera singer, a book editor (to name a few unexpected jobs) as well as people who were in more traditional business/consulting jobs. I would say the higher level of school you are aiming for, the higher the level of work experience the school will look for.

    Okay, very true. Thanks! I actually like my job enough that I don't really want to go back to Undergrad, but I'll definitely keep non-undergraduate programs open, including the MBA. I might come up with more questions later in the future.
