    I want to get my B.A. in one year. Is Bulka a good seminary? What are the girls like… Also if I start taking online courses from Thomas Edison or ocean county college now, will Rebitzen Bulka accept the credits? Thank You!

    I think they may also accept credits from Hogsmeade Community College

    Hermione tried to start this topic again so rather than having 2 topics I will just bump this one…

    Hermione:

    Depends on what you want to do with your life. Reb. Bulka will not help you to be a witch, nor will it help with many other careers. I know someone who went OT/PT/SPEECH/Special ed. with it, if that is how you want to go.

    Using a spell would be much quicker.

    Did you get promoted? I have noticed you went from “occasional moderator” to “24/6” ?

    optimus: good catch on the Mod’s new subtitle.

    Mod. 42, I hope that you got a suitable raise to go along with the fancy, new title (or subtitle). Yasher koach and may you be as successful in all of your endeavours. Keep watching for your bouquet of flowers – virtual ones – in honor of this auspicious occasion. (of course, I have absolutely no idea how to send virtual flowers, but it is the thought that counts).

    It’s a decent college program, but very intense. Rebbetzin Bulka is an amazing person.

    Thank you minyan gal.

    Pascha bchachmaa, why would you ruin a perfectly good thread by posting on topic?

    Hmmm I just can’t imagine why 🙂

    I heard this seminary is very intense but you can get your degree very quickly. It is more of a college rather than a seminary but they do have a hebrew part of the day and its a good choice if you really put yourself to work hard and want to get over the college years quickly and get a 4 year degree into 2 years!

    I really am curious how you can get any kind of a 4 year degree in 2 years. Are these degrees recognized by any universities for post graduate study? Somehow, I wouldn’t like to be cared for by a doctor who completed a 4 year program in 2 (even if it were just pre-med studies). I know that a lot of frum women go into careers such as social work and occupational therapy – both of which are 4 year programs at any university that I know of. It is pretty much impossible to learn all that is required for either of these programs in 2 years. Even if you are just talking about a BA, I can’t see how it can be done, or done properly, in half the time.

    One can go to Brooklyn College and get a real B.S. or Bachelor of Business Administration in two jam-packed years. From the website of Professor Friedman (who is a really nice yid):

    Year 1

    Summer I or II Semester: Take 6 credits

    Fall Semester: Take 18 credits

    Winter Intersession: Take 7 credits

    Spring Semester: Take 18 credits

    Summer Session I: Take 7 credits

    Summer Session II: Take 7 credits

    Year 2

    Fall Semester: Take 18 credits

    Winter Intersession: Take 7 credits

    Spring Semester: Take 18 credits

    Summer Session I: Take 7 credits

    Summer Session II: Take 7 credits

    Technically, if you have a decent GPA, you will be able to take up to 21 credits during fall and spring instead of 18, so you may be able to distribute the load a bit differently.

    Thanks for the information. This is actually full time, year round study as opposed to the regular “college year”. A person would definitely have to be very committed and very focused to achieve this 2 year degree. One would definitely have to kiss any social life a fond goodbye as well as doing the same for any volunteer activities. Of course, for many it is well worth the effort involved.

    I know it’s expensive, but unlike Hogwarts, there’s no fund for scholarships for people who can’t afford tuition or books. Also, there’s no dormitories.

    The cheapest way to do it is to go through a RIJS (rechtschaffen istitute of judaic studies) where there are no live or recorded classes (except two or three), so it’s all self study, but every 3 credits is only $200. There is only a few degrees you can get from them, but it’s worth a try. rechtijs.org (or .com?)

    Dont go to seminary for a college degree. Go to a not jewish college for a college degree. Even the so called jewish college in New York makes the girls go off the Derech. I know people who went to a not jewish college and jewish college and the girls turned out worse at the Jewish college. But, the girls at the not jewish college stayed the same.

    Supposedly, you get your BA in 1 year. I know a few people that are in the program now & a few that already finished with degrees in nursing & (I think) speech. I know a guy that also finished with a degree in social work. I think its intense and costly, but sounds worth it.

    I know that the masters in Social Work is a real program through LIU. I think the Rebitzen Bulka programs are harder than TTI. Many of the BA credits are from yeshiva seminary courses plus a year in her program to get the degree.
