There is certainly a lot of negative reportsPsychology
There is certainly a lot of negative reports about Walden U, which was the impetus for me writing this review. I was in the PhD in clinical psychology program from Sept. 2012-June 2017. I came directly from the BS level. My dissertation took 12 months to the day. The school was quite helpful in finding me a committee member and my chair was amazing! I secured my internship and completed it while doing my dissertation. I had a great experience and it's unfortunate that people with bad ones are scaring a lot of people off. I?m sure people have had issues with this school like any other school. However, I found from my experience and my classmates, that perseverance is the key to any PhD program. A PhD program is like jail: only you can do the time. With that in mind, I worked like a dog for quite a few years but I got it done and am now a doctor!

DO NOT GO HERE!!!Super BrilliantBusiness - Management and Administration
-1) The website that you depend on is absolutely deplorable. Most of the time the links will pop up with HTML code and you are left with no choice but to call for help.

-1) Calling anyone for help will most likely leave you with more questions and angry. Do not expect to connect with anyone having good customer service skills.

-1) You will be thrown to the wolves. Orientation is a joke, but not a good joke. If this is your first time going to online school you will spend your first course constantly begging for guidance from your instructor on how to use the site, submit homework, find pertinent information etc..

-1) If this were any other business you would not be satisfied. School is a business. They take your money and provide a service. For the money they are taking you are getting screwed as a customer. The lack of knowledge and customer service within the recruitment and academic team is enough to ruin their reputation. They have the mentality that because they have been doing this for years that newcomers are expected to be on the same level of skill. This points back to a clear inability to educate.

-1) There is no "flow" in your courses. You will bounce and tab back and forth trying to make sense of what you are supposed to do next. Do NOT fall for the quick talking, ever-so-kind and accommodating recruiter. Their job is to get your money. You and your education mean nothing to them. If you fail, they get paid regardless.

Not so brightOther
Faculty has "paper mill" PHD's but insist being called "doctor". Really a joke. Poor courses, discrimination abounds.
