He cares more about "Individual" treatment than the average student.

I entered Capella University in January, 2010 with an enthusiastic view of completing my PhD in Organizational Management. The course room work (class subjects) were interesting and relevant. The final exam was pertinent to the program. I completed all courses and Final exam in September, 2011. My attitude was positive and I was ready to take on my dissertation.

This is when things turned sour. I began my dissertation in October of 2011 and after two mentors and several requirement changes and committee personnel changes, I am no closer to completing my dissertation, more than two years later, than I was in October of 2011.

I would warn anybody seeking a PhD at Capella University to consider other options because throughout this frustrating period of time, not once has a key staff member in the chain-of-authority at this institution attempted to contact me to try and find out the reason why I am ready to drop out of this program without my PhD.
