I just withdrew from GCU. I was there for a year as an Organizational doctoral student. I had two of the worst professors I have ever had in my life there. Both told me I would never graduate. I felt that either GCU was admitting students just for the money and telling the faculty to dump them down the road, or the students were sub par and GCU was just admitting with no intention of graduating them. I decided to go to another school that admitted me as well. This school also has scholarships, they are a little more than GCU but the scholarships bring the price down to the level of that that GCU promised. GCU said they were the cheapest now I see they are not. Not to mention that residency in AZ that they claim financial aid pays for-guess what it doesn't pay for all of it, so that's like 5,000 a year because you have to attend three. So is GCU really cheaper. Also they are told to push the loans on the students and not even talk about grants or other funding. I feel they should do more to find funding for the students. also the professors are not consistent and they don't follow the rubric, they rarely provide helpful comments. I had one that didn't know how a research paper was written.
questionWhere did you go instead?
responseFirst of all… Doctoral Students don't get Pell Grants.. Second of all… having read your complaint, I have no doubt as to why your instructor said you'd never graduate.
responseI had a bad experience with several teachers as well. There was one teacher in particular I had filed a complaint against, I had proof she intentionally graded me unfairly, and the school did NOTHING! I would NOT recommend this school to ANYONE!
