Liberty University -|
Anyone who ever considers the University, is more than likely a tool.
Lets take a look at this from the prospective of an employer: Two applicants - one from JMU or VT or UVa or etcc, one from Liberty. Both have similar GPA's and an excellent resume. One apparently embraces science and has intellectual curiosity. One apparently does NOT embrace science and seemingly is unwilling to accept modern-day science in the name of "the bible". Who would you hire? Nothing against religion, but come on... this is a no brainer

| Although Liberty University is accredited their online program shouldn't be. They allow you to use your book to complete tests.|
The test taking is not not monitered by a proctor. They make up for the fact that the test are open book by flooding the online students with material and work.
If you have a job do not attempt Liberty's program they do not want you to complete it. I did all of the work I could and had one major issue their software! I would submit test and the computer system would say error contact administrator.
If you ask to retake the test they give you a small amount of time to retake it. If you can't retake it because you are working or doing something they will send you an email not call you. Saying that since it has been so long you cannot retake the test. Liberty is a scam they do not want to give degrees to 30 thousand online students because that would look ridiculous. Don't waste your money at Liberty. It is possible to receive a degree from Liberty but you will not receive the grades that you deserve even if you work hard. The fact that they let you complete tests open book makes you feel like you cheated. They are impersonal and want you to withdraw without giving you anything in return.

| I was a commuter student who recently left the Marines and had a very nice place to live in Madison Heights, about nine miles north of LU. Liberty is a great school, but they lack in activities. The City of Lynchburg doesn't help in that department, either.|
I'm not the most social person, granted; while I did make some acquaintances here, I expected more. The only social activities are occasional movie nights, late-night skates at the LU LaHaye Ice Center, and late-night concerts called "coffeehouse". While I may not get out very much, I didn't meet that many people in the Student Center or the East Campus Clubhouse, either.
The campus is dead during the summer, and all the students vacate the ridiculously paleo-conservative City of Lynchburg. There is a constant threat of being caught by LU's RAs in a bar or tavern, which is the only fun activity around that crappy town. Nobody wants to hire any full-time LU students for a decent job; this was not the biggest deal in the world during the school year, as I received GI Bill money from the government. However, once summer hit, all that assistance went away and I was stuck making about 900 bucks a month. That's not exactly enough money to go out and have some fun very often.
I was set to do another semester this fall when the Marines called me up and asked if I wanted to work in Kansas City for a while. I accepted and am typing this from my desk at this moment, making over double what I did working in Lynchburg. My DLP courses start a week from Monday.Overall, I would not consider going here unless you have (or plan to make) lots of friends in the area and bring your own things to do. Washington, D.C. is four hours away, as is Virginia Beach and Williamsburg. I hope this helps.
