My experience is with the Ed. D. program, the academics and research were rigorous. I believe I learned a lot from this program.

However, they drastically underestimate the time and expense this program will need for completion. From my experience it has been almost double the time and cost. Their benchmarks that they say should take two weeks may take an entire semester or more. As several other individuals have stated it sure seems as though they are more about generating revenue than helping you complete the program. To complete the program I spent twice as long, and spent twice as much money as I thought I would at the beginning of the program.

The instructors are helpful, but limited in what they can do to help guide a student through the process.

If I were starting over I would not spend my money at Walden University; I would look elsewhere for a more positive experience.
