Capella is a wonderful school. It's new (1993), accredited, business-like and innovative. All programs are online. Courses are challenging with varying interactivity of faculty. Some have been too easy in the past but now there are checks and balances and all have to provide regular feedback to students. The required residencies are amazing -the faculty are excellent, many brilliant. The students are from everywhere, all very motivated. It costs a lot but worth it if you can design a tight program plan and keep to it. This year Capella is exploding and so the chase is on to provide courses and mentors while keeping the quality very high. So far they are doing a very good job.

The organization works like clockwork, I love that about the school. Also, it's on the quarter system so programs are fast track. Many of the specializations are high tech and not available elsewhere.

Online study is not for everyone, but if you already work and want a higher degree, are motivated and can use a computer then this is for you. I think by the end of the course I will have had more advice and interaction regarding my PHD and program than an in-person school. Also, the entire organization is about 'getting it done and helping the students = very positive; not at all rude or slowing you down.
