The teachers are tooOther
The teachers are too hard on the students and the students are so narrow minded they are not down to Earth. I hang out with students at a college in Florida and they are more down to Earth and easy to relate to.

Question
It's a cheap andBusiness - Management and Administration
It's a cheap and easy masters. Nothing great about it. My job paid for my education and encouraged me to get my masters from a big name school. Those type of schools were too hard, too challenging, or too much time & work. So Troy it was. Allowed me to fill that square of having a masters.

Question
The problem in Texas could have been muchAverageBusiness - Management and Administration
The problem in Texas could have been much worse if not for the site director in San Antonio. I have no idea what their problems were and don't care. All I wanted to do was finish my degree. I had no idea what a SOC contract was and Dr. Phelps said I probably came from Montgomery because they were notorious for not doing the right thing. He helped me get my SOC contract and because they were not allowed to teach in Texas, he showed me what colleges to use and then transfer the courses back to Troy. He had me send my transcripts to the main campus and not Montgomery, because he said they would never be seen again if they went to Montgomery. I finished up with Park, transferred my stuff to Troy, and got my degree. I was disappointed that I could not walk the stage, but they didn't have graduation ceremonies in Texas for obvious reasons. Later I approached Dr. Phelps about getting a Troy masters online. He said that was an option, but that I should back up my Troy bachelors with a better masters. I narrowed my options to Norwich and Boston University. I would never have known about either if I had not talked to Dr. Phelps. He also told me that the site was closing, but would reopen later. I heard they have a site in San Antonio now, but I'm much more satisfied with my masters from Norwich. Actually, I was glad to wash my hands of Troy after the trouble they caused me.
