    I know at least one person here on TE has there MS from Capella. I am sure there are others here as well. I am considering them for my BS because of some agreements between them and my Community College. Many probably don't realize they have waivers for certifications and experience. Do you know what you want your Master degree to be in?

    not really for sure yet...
    Information sec is getting huge in this area but would also like to concentrate in the MIS field so I wouldn't have to stay low level forever

    INFOSEC would be one reason to seriously consider Capella for online studies. At this time I think they are the only online school that is one National Centers of Academic Excellence approved by the NSA.

    This is the one I'm looking at: Graduate School of Computer and Information Sciences

    I would choose Capella, if my organization has an alliance with Capella.

    Corporate alliances
    Each year, thousands of employees benefit from company-supported participation in Capella University online degree programs. Capella currently has education alliances with more than 100 corporations, including Johnson & Johnson, Farmers Insurance, and Xerox. Learn more about corporate alliances.

    Also, I always get scared when it's highly difficult to find tution rates, but it's way to easy to talk to anyone about admissions to the college.

    That's my 2 cents
