If I were in your place I would dismiss the idea of certification, the idea only came to the fore due to the deceptive practices of a "recruiting" company. They can't sell it on its own merits.

I counsel you to focus on your degree program as much as possible. Three rationales: First maintain positive inertia. Second, a partially completed degree will have its worth discounted and will depreciate drastically over time. Third, you have already demonstrated your belief in the value of your studies.

It is apparent that you have doubts, exacerbated by your present difficulties, I would point out that you might have similiar feelings if you were in a certification program.

I appreciate that you ask us before making your choice.

Most fair sized boat building projects fail because the builder loses heart. The builder is a beginner; as mistakes are made the builder sees that the boat will far fall short of the dream boat she envisioned. She loses heart.

I was glad to learn that bit about boats before I got too far with my boat project. I was slower to realize I am another boat that I build.

Be well,
