1) Are there skills and knowledge that a degree program would give me that would be especially difficult to get through disciplined self training?
2) How difficult is it to get companies to look at my resume without a degree?
3) What can be done to counter the weakness of not having a degree?
4) In the end if I go for completing my degree, what are some signs to look for when judging if a school has a program thats worth a damn? If I find one with a good program, would a non-accredited technical school be a viable option as far as future employment goes?
