While I would recommend UOP for Bachelor's, I will be pursuing a Master's degree elsewhere. I chose the online option, even though a UOP campus has recently opened here. I am in my 8th course, and have learned a lot, but usually not due in any way to the instructor's "real world experience." UOP touts all the credentials of its faculty, but what good are credentials when instructors merely facilitate the class, handing out assignments and deadlines? I have to ask myself where the value is in that. UOP can be EXPENSIVE, check out alternatives - many colleges are getting on the distance learning bandwagon. I do feel that my Bachelor's degree will be accepted by employers as a "middle of the road" degree, but it is by no means a "diploma mill" degree…UOP is very hard work. I agree with other posters that the grading system is questionable. I am nearly a straight A student (one A minus), but that is because I killed myself to turn in quality work. I had a recent classmate whose grammar and spelling is downright atrocious and she is three classes from graduating!
