They are changing but they aren't also. UVA still opens more doors


than an online degree and it will be awhile before that changes. The UVA network helps a lot and is often underutilized.

Can't speak for Hoos in your area but know friends I graduated with and siblings of friends almost all of them have done very well and in most cases better than their friends from other schools. You are right the days of doing art history and getting a $100,000 finance job from go are done, but that is the case in most places.

My company had someone apply with an online degree recently and my boss looked it over and said honestly they don't think the person could hack the position. Last person they hired with an online degree was from Liberty and it was a struggle for them.

On personal note I was hired above a more qualified candidate because of my UVA degree, my resume was average I will admit due to limited experience but I was told UVA made the difference. That being said I'm up for a role in January that most people are in my job 10 years before getting, so I must have done something right.
