SCPD Graduate Certificates (online, part-time from Stanford Center for Professional Development)
Ignoring cost of tuition - 2/3 covered by Google - and personal life satisfaction aside - too subjective - is it worth completing some certificates to acquire solid technical skills and develop one's career?
I have rigorous B.S. in STEM, although not from a top 3 school. Not applying to competitive MS due to mediocre GPA and lack of recommendation letters.
Suggestions? (Multiple options selectable, as I live near Palo Alto, if that matters, and can commit years of free time outside the regular day job.)
