I am sorely tempted to buy a degree online. I could tell you all my reasons but that would take forever. Going to school, even online and even just one or two classes a semester is not an option. I cannot afford it, do not have the time to apply for financial support, and my dream job - which I am FULLY qualified for - is available for a limited time. I have literally a lifetime of experience in that field, have tons of ideas, and I can do it better than anyone.
Go ahead and assume I do not have a choice because in many ways, I feel like I don't. I see people less qualified than me being promoted and it burns me up.
Do you have a fake degree? Has anything bad happened? What is your advice?
