To your vertical comment - why isn't my daughter's school closed? They have 2k on campus and yet never more than about 20 or 30 active case. That isn't a vertical line. Oh, and nearly all of those cases are traced to a location other than the school.
Online degrees - 1. We are talking about 20 year olds versus 7 year olds and 2. I don't know that they are good enough for a master's or a doctorate. I know I'm not going to a doctor that went to online medical school, (other doctorate degrees might be different depending on how much actual hands on information is used or part of the process like a conducting degree, etc.), and I also know I am not having someone remodel my home or build my home that learned framing on youtube.... Maybe advanced degrees online have simply watered down the total market and that second degree isn't worth nearly what it used to be. Oh, and if you are doing an online performance degree, I'm probably not that interested in taking lessons from you or maybe even hiring you as a guest artist.....
