    Actually, I was considering going to SANS for my graduate degree, but then I saw that it was not regionally accredited. However, now that it is regionally accredited, by the Middle States Commission, it will give me something to consider. SANS reputation is very significant (especially for their training with GIAC certs), so having a regionally accredited degree from SANS may be a good employment edge.

    Approx $50,000+ (including fees and in-person requirements) is pretty steep, like their training, I'm sure they are hoping that employers will shell out the bucks. The GSE is the capstone requirement for one of the programs, I've been told that this is no joke (tough exam/lab).

    Congratulations to SANS. I considered SANS for a master's degree before ultimately deciding on WGU. The price tag was just too steep for my employer to fully reimburse.
