    I'm kicking it into overdrive now though so that hopefully I can transfer to San Diego State University next spring!
    Online classes vary from college to college.

    They are more work than on campus classes but more convenient. No more getting up at 730 to be at class at 8am~

    I've taken a few, and absolutely loved them... but it was a unique situation for me.

    I was a single mom, and my son was 2 and a half or 3 at the time, and he would POUR on the guilt and tears every time I had to leave the house to go to class.

    Online classes were the perfect solution for me, because a deadline usually means it's due at midnight on a specific day (unless they've specified otherwise). That meant that I could hang with my boy all day, put him to bed at bedtime and then work all evening if I needed to, rather than missing his awake time by being in a class from 5-7 or something, and spending an hour driving, to and from.

    I do know, though, that if it weren't for those circumstances, I didn't have the personality for online classes... I was not driven enough on my own to do the work it takes, without having the teacher breathing down your neck about it.... I love them now that I've tried them though.

    When I was going to start college last semester, I really was hoping to do mostly online. I was disappointed that my best option for college didn't really offer it much.

    After attending classes, I think it was probably for my best. That's just me though.

    I took a majority of my masters that way. I liked it because it didn't interupt work. There were set times for class meetings w professor and classmates too so you had that interaction.

    I'd say at least try one on-line and see for yourself if it works for you. Who knows maybe it is the best class you ever take.

    I took one which was a half and half type of deal (almost) where everything was done at home but you showed up in person to take your tests. Yes there are more deadlines... one every few days for each lesson pretty much, your computer logs in online and let's the teacher know you finished your lesson.

    It's thorough and if you have a personality where you can get by on just a computer program, it works if driving to class is that much of a pain in the ass for you.

    That said, I'd rather have a class in person every time. If you really need the convenience that's what it's there for though.

    I took some in high school, they worth it kinda, but allot harder than being in a real room. There are allot more deadlines, there is no teacher whom can sit and help you in detail. So it's hard.
