You get out of it what you put in it. I can do my work at 2 am if I need to and faculty get back to you within a day or so. Most faculty make their availability clear at the beginning of each class so I'm not sure why people would be frustrated by lack of contact when a faculty member flat out says they only respond once a week. The classes are only as rigorous as you make them, if you put in the time, you get a lot out of it, but I can see how one would just skate by. But my guess is that the skaters will get screwed come thesis time. I wouldn't go here if I wanted to teach. This isn't a respected school for preparing researchers or teachers in the field. But if you're only trying to move ahead professionally in a non-teaching role, I think it's better for that. If you're not insecure about where you go and can afford it, this is hands down better than Phoenix or Walden - trust me, I've enrolled at both. The work is a bit more challenging and a bit more relevant here. As one reviewer pointed out, my 8 year old cousin could complete the work at Phoenix. Anyway. I like it and I recommend it here.
