My implication was that spending that money on a degree here would be fool hearty here, but perhaps things are different 90 miles east where the OP lives. Business is all about ROI, there's nothing personal about math.

Inaccurate? What's your source? I have been to college, but I don't have a degree. I was one of the youngest CAs in the Southern Chapter, and one of 40 something in MS. There are a plethora of people becoming an ISA CA, so the ISA has came out with more certifications. The ISA is a business, one of their goals is making money. Being college educated can substitute for experience on their requirements.

No, becoming an ISA CA exactly requires passing their CA test. That's it.
