So I started March of 2017. First professor was James Broom- he was great! Second class was easier (it's supposed to be harder), but professor Kautt was nice. Class three was HELL! Oliviero is an expert no doubt, but he doesn't know how to clarify exacgtly "what" a student is doing wrong. He just wrote "this is not at the graduate leverl" on all of our papers! There were 8 kids in my section- there were 2 sections. 5 out of 8 kids dropped my class, including me, and eventually the program. The man was ridiculous, a little pompous, and from what I heard a little rude to other students. I'm switching to Arizona State and so far my experience has been great. My best advice is, if you're an expert and have time to read, this is for you, but there's little interaction between students and teachers, even for a distance program. One of the students wrote to the director (who has been demoted) abou the ridiculousness of the man, Oliviero, and he basically said "tough crap." Yeah. I'm not going back there. And I would recommend not until they change things a bit. Their sign on is confusing because there's a separate link for online versus on campus students.I used to have to save the link to my computer to even find it again. Admitting advisors and financial aid folks were nice, but they blamed our dropping the program on the "ever declining ability of students' writing." Like, no. I had some great teachers teach me how to write. Some of these teachers don't know how to teach.
