Lynne, brought up a good point about pairing with a colleague.
One of my lunch buddies decided to enroll in an admin program
about the same time that I did. Although we were in different
programs with a different focus there were many common
assignments. We helped each others consider options,
opportunities, and problem solve challenges. You may want to ask
around to see if anyone else in your school is either currently
enrolled or has been considering enrollment in an admin program.
