    Good afternoon and Happy Memorial Day weekend to you all..

    For those who have completed a Masters in Educational Leadership to obtain principal certification, could you answer the following questions:

    1) which college/university did you attend?
    2) was it expensive?
    3) was it very writing intense or doable?

    I was taking a few courses for that degree at ACE and it was just too much writing- probably due to each class being only 5 weeks and fully online.

    Don’t get me wrong - I have a Masters from another school so I understand that every program will have writing. I am just looking for a program in Ed Leadership that doesn’t have so much writing compared to others.

    Thanks in advance everyone!

    Thank you. Can you elaborate on how much writing you had?

    Lots of papers, lots of reflective summaries, but it was worth it. Program was 13 months.

    I appreciate your response! Just a few more questions if you don’t mind:

    What state did you earn your cert in? How many weeks is each class? For the papers, how long on average was each paper and how often did you have to write them?

    thanks again!

    To paraphrase "White Christmas", it's somewhere between ouch and BOING!
    I loved the majority of writing I did for my program and I return to it regularly to review what I learned and what I had to say.
