meh, not the one in Lakewood...
I mean you do need to study but not sure that its on par with other schools
Well at least compared to the BA program, the Masters is on a different level.

The coursework is a joke, but the degree is real. I spoke w dr. Rabinowitz before i started the program (BA) and she said that former students got into law an business school np, they even had one student get into med school although he had to supplement the sci req for med school since the yeshiva prog not geared to that. I am currently in TTI graduate program through Daemen college to get MS in Special Education. I got in bec of the FDU BA. In fact i was in better position than students who came from TTI own BA program. FWIU it's at least as good as the Touro BA, although it prob depends wat field you looking to get into. But def cheaper than Touro and quicker.

This is prob why Touro started accepting 60 yeshiva credits now instead of the 48 they used to bec these chick chak programs are KILLING them.

Touro accepting 60 yeshiva credits?!?!? I'm there now, they are only taking 48!!

that is not necessarily true, if someone is eligible for financial aid, there are quite cheap routes to take in touro!!

Incorrect, spk w the advisors again, i know from multiple sources Touro is now accepting 60 yeshiva credits. (I believe this is Very new so spk w the advisors to get the extra credits)

so as much as its a joke, so was high school. and we all end up doing the same thing either way. i always looked at the BA programs in general as high school, theres a bigger picture than just the schooling, its the diploma, until you reach a masters program. once ur getting a masters thats the real deal, and will determine what type of job you get. i know at least 8-10 people who are either in top schools, or have big jobs with big companies.
If you have any questions please search and then ask. PM me for detailed help.

Two points: 1) unless your going for a degree that has a very small major (psyc), the extra credits won't help you since there's the stupid mandatory courses plus the major which usually equals more than 120 (with the 48). I think u are mixing up touro taking 60 with the accounting majors, they accept 60 from them since they need 150 credits not 120. 2) if you can get financial aid than its very easy to go to touro for free.

??? For that you can use a BTL.

Re. TTI, I've spoken to them a while back, they told me even if someone is getting maximum financial aid, they still have to pay a minimum $7k (BA).  With Touro (and others for sure) it'll cost less -fact.  But of course a lot more time...
Touro accepting 60 yeshiva credits?!?!?
+1. Know lots of guys there, impossible.
if someone is eligible for financial aid, there are quite cheap routes to take in touro!!
+1. And even cheaper in other places.
There is financial aid in FDU as well.
So what's the total minimum cost after financial aid, assuming the maximum?
i know at least 8-10 people who are either in top schools, or have big jobs with big companies.
That have a BA from FDU??
if you can get financial aid than its very easy to go to touro for free. Complete on uncle sam
-1. Touro makes things very difficult for many people, and its very very hard to get away scott free in Touro.  Maybe you mean almost free or like free :)
I know too many people who've gone through and are currently in the Touro system (nobody likes it, but they all go), and all say the same thing.  Though things may be different outside NYC.

So for the 18 non-fdu credits i summarize;
The 6 english has to be a clep.
Math can be clep but alecks is easier=3.
6+3=9
Boilogy, already did clep=15
Than for last three im about to do comp clep, if i fail can do art dante? Or maybe emt stuff (ill ask swanzey, bec moran goldfarb isnt very friendly)

It was verified, can take daunte in har nof (and in ramalah, but i look a bit jewish) ill ask swanzey if fdu still takes dauntes because when i spoke to him at first he only told me about clep test.
Thanks everyone

I have 1 friend in med school with an fdu degree (obviously supplemented with other requirements for med school) and another who got into Columbia law (yes he did well on lsat)
Personally I myself just finished waiting to graduate) and I'm a big fan as I'm under the impression that the whole college thing for the most part is a scam so as long as u get the diploma.
Also for someone without all the Yeshiva hookups it is a fair amount of work

Yup. But I don't think she only works for the yeshiva program.

Does she give any classes not online? Or only online classes?
