Here’s a real answer - hard to build a network and get to know people online. The credential is only part of the value - the network is probably more valuable than the degree, and I’m not sure you get the same opportunities in online only. Online programs also probably have lower standards than classroom, so your network may also be less valuable over the long term (if you think schools do a good job selecting applicants and predicting future potential)
