Interview with Michael Satz, Online Learning Graduate- Education Connection


To get my bachelors degree was actually an
amazing situation. Because of my ability to be able to go online 24 hours a day and 7
days a week, holidays, any time which I wanted to, I was able to excel much quicker than
the average student to be able to go through school. In fact, I was able to complete my
four-year bachelors of science degree in two years time. I can log in to the computer and
get thousands of titles, I have access to 24-hour a day legal research. These types
of things are key tools for us to be able to do. To be able to interact with our professors,
with the other students, 24-hours a day, 7 days a week, I can’t tell you how many times
that I would be in a situation where I was unsure about a particular answer and I would
go online and one of my classmates were online also at 2 or 3 oclock in the morning, and
we’d be collaborating back and forth to create our projects. Having that type of capabilities
is absolutely impossible to do in a regular school and in online education, it’s quite
easy. One night per week for each week we have a seminar, that’s where we actually interact
with your professor, where you actually interact with the other students, and you’re talking
back and forth and that type of interaction is wonderful to be able to meet with the other
students, talk to them, develop a relationship with them. We would talk through instant messaging,
we would talk through the telephone, often through webcams, and that type of interaction
is a phenomenal way to be able to prove your educational experience. The purpose for going
back to school was ultimately to get my degree to be able to go back to law school, and in
taking online education, this was the only way in which I could accomplish my goals,
1. by working as a paralegal at the time and 2. to be able to advance within my corporation-
to move from a junior paralegal to a senior paralegal and then be able to move to law
school. You have to dedicate yourself to online education to be able to make it work. But
with that dedication allows you the opportunity to excel phenomenally.
