It's like Homer Simpson's dream some true! I will soon be starting a course at Siebel. I just got home from work and checked my e-mail, and found a message with my registration papers and links to order books. Looks like it's time to start studying again, but somehow I don't see it as being a chore as in the past. Just one more step on my way to the greatest career on earth.

Wow, congrats!!!!!

I'm 99% sure I'm gonna do this in 2 years when my Air Force gig is up, but I still haven't decided to which school yet. I am leaning towards the UC-Davis program but ABG and Seibel are very tempting as well.

What made you decide on Seibel?

It was a toss up between ABG and Siebel for me right now since I have two jobs, and am not really able to do the campus based thing at the moment so I'm taking the web based course right now. But I have family in Chicago, so it will be a lot easier for me to go their than Cali when I take the campus based classes, and Kieth Lemcke, the VP at Siebel is a really nice guy. I listened to an interview with him, and emailed him, and he seems very willing to help out with anything he can.
