AMU requires an extreme level of self dicipline and motivation in order to complete, this is absolutely not a diploma mill and anyone entering this institution with that belief of expectation will quickly realize otherwise.
Be weary of all these reviews that consistently state all A's and giving "excuses" in some of the negative comments. I'm sure some of the amin/admissions office from AMU monitor and comment on this site. This is a FOR PROFIT university. Which means at the end of the day, the interest of the school/company is to appease it's shareholders, (yes, APUS is on the stock market http://quotes.nasdaq.com/asp/SummaryQuote.asp?symbol=APEI&selected=APEI) not it's STUDENTS. Be smart and go to your local community college/education office.
What is a waste of time? Going through all of these comments about how great and how horrible this system is, that is a waste. If you're motivated and have dicipline to learn and study while working a full time job with a family, sign yourself up for some professional growth. Should you be fortunate enough to attend a big prestigious "not for profit" school and graduate with 80k in debt, then pursue that opportunity. Distance learning/online education is undervalued in today's society. Your life is what you put into it, just as your educational success will be. I enjoy the experience I get from this school or "company" (it is for profit), and maybe it will open up some doors for me. Do your research and ask yourself one question before attneding any school. Am I ready to dedicate whatever time may be necessary to be successful at this?
