A quick plug for my Alma Mater

For those of you who've never heard of it, Excelsior College (www.excelsior.edu) is a great way for working adults to continue their education. There's no campus; you send in your credits from other institutions and CLEP tests, and they compile everything and help you figure out the best way to finish your degree. Military members can use this to transfer their tech school credits and any DANTES tests that they may have taken, and then finish the degree with some Excelsior exams. The best part is, it's inexpensive, so you can finish your degree for about $1200, and then save your GI bill for your Master's degree, or law degree (Like I'm doing), or what have you.
The best part is, they're part of the State University System of New York, which means that they are regionally accredited, not like those "diploma mills" that keep showing up in Wyoming.
Anyway, I'm not getting paid for this plug, though if any of the regents at the university wish to give me an advertising commission, I'd be willing to talk... Law school's expensive!
