Re: RE: University Degree or CISSP

I currently hold a cissp certification.  I can say that it helped to propel me towards the 100k jobs.  But when it 
really comes down to it, as soon as I become a candidate for a postition that is 100k + and my resume get put next to a 
person who has a college degree, I don't even get an email back.  I am 27 now and working on a college degree while I 
currently hold a CNE, CEH, CISSP, SCTA, and MCP certifications.  But without the degree these are only getting me so 
far.  Part of the degree shows a bit about your integrity and if you can set a goal and obtain it by following through 
with the 4 years of work that it takes to get the degree.  So in the end if you want more $ and a managerial type 
position get the degree you can always get a cissp later.
