I read the recent post on a masters degree, but no answer there. If DS validates a lot of classes, how realistic is it to get a masters in 5 years (civil engineering) Obviously the related question would be his time commitment assuming the above happens, I assume 7 years after graduation? Also, he's been accepted to a top engineering school already with a scholarship offer. How does NA's engineering program work, and I assume their engineering degree is considered on par with other top schools? Thanks!
