I'm in the Online CE program, and notMar 16 2015Other
I'm in the Online CE program, and not that far along. I went to a Top 20 school for my BA, so I didn't know what to expect from little Adams. So far, I'm mostly impressed. The classes are challenging and I feel like I'm learning a lot. Of my three professors, one is excellent, one is meh and one is totally phoning it in. The first one is responsive and helpful and does class notes/supporting handouts/videos-she is great! The second one just throws an enormous amount of work at you, but in neither responsive or friendly. The last one-literally, I have no idea what he's doing. He asks for one short paper every two weeks, never grades them (haven't gotten the one I turned in a month ago back yet), does no class notes-nothing. I don't know how he paid to "work" as a professor, because he evidently does no work.

Admin. is fairly responsive. They could do better in communicating-for example, there is one specific thing due when applying, apparently. I say apparently because the Handbook does not list it among things required in a complete file. In another place, it says it's due April 1, and somewhere else, June 1. So far, I'd give Adams a solid B. That may change as I go along. If I could have gone to a "better" ranked/reputation school, I would have, but considering I'm in my 40s and work full-time, this was the best option for the money.

I would not recommendSep 01 2011Other
I would not recommend the CE Online program- grading very arbitrary/no feedback, not culturally diverse, residency has no positive value to future as counselor, department is a hindrance to education. I say this as an A student who has now transferred.
