Does anyone know of anybody who has got one of those instant degrees off the internet....They say they are based on work and life experience....
One mob issues degrees from an online university in the states.....
Two I have seen on the net are CUSTOM DEGREES and INSTANT DEGREES.

They are not cheap $500 US .... I am curious to know if after you pay do they send the goods ... And are the degrees accepted by in Korea ???

People are awarded "honorary" degrees by universities all the time. These are reputable universities mind you, who consider that someones contribution to some field has been of value (sport?), so if lots of life experience and work make you feel that you are eligible for an instant degree, go for it.
A radio/TV personality in Australia a few years ago got one (fake one) and was bagging the crap out of the way the system could allow such a thing, yet shortly after was applauding the allocation of an "honorary" degree on a sporting personality (who incidently would be hard pressed to have enough smarts to open their zip before peeing). Strange world.
If you think it is worthwhile, give it a go. I've met people with no formal quals who could outstrip many a degree holder, but for lack of official documentation were relegated to the scrapheap.


Still crazy, still here.

I know a few people here who bought their degrees on-line.
$500.00 is the cheapest that I have heard of.
When you buy, go for the quality degree mill.
Find a place that supplies you with the full line of paperwork (degree, transcripts, contact number, etc).
Cheers.

Good question Lemon!

And extend that to should they be accepted anywhere?


If you really want a fake degree you can get one rather easily..but what does that say about you or about the choices you make?
