I attend a graduates and professionals program at my school. It is geared for working professionals who decide to go back to school. What most appealed to me about the school was the convenience. It is a flexible program that allows you to either have evening or weekend classes. You are in an accelerated program that only takes up one evening per week for three hours. They have several locations allowing more availability for the classes you are looking for. Another plus was the affiliation my job had with the school, making tuition reimbursement and applying for aid easier.
