Walden University has about 20k students, with a dropout rate of 90%.

About 80% of the teachers are ok, the other 20% are insane and should not be teaching. If you have an issue with an insane teacher, just know that the administration is not going to listen to you at all, and sticks 100% by their money maker.

You get what you put into the course work, which is fun and educational for about the first 5 classes. Then you are taking the same classes over and over again, writing two or three papers instead of just one. The Walden program will milk about 6 more classes out of you compared to brick and mortar schools, until you can start to work on your PhD dissertation. They are just being greedy.

The future reputation of Walden is bleak, because they let everyone in and do not publish papers (18 in the last 20 years). Also, brick and mortar schools are starting to offer better programs.

All in all, I wish I never signed up for Walden University. Waste of time and money!
