This fall I'll be starting classes at Lewis for ATC, but I've got a dilemma. Associates, or Bachelors. I already have an associates from the Air Force for aviation maintenance tech. so if I do the associates I would only have to do core classes. I'd rather do the associated unless there are significant advantages to the bachelors. Does having a bachelors give you a leg up in the hiring process or a significant pay increase? Any info would be greatly appreciated!
