I really like my school at Walden University. For an online program, they have a great cirrocumuli and the support is great. As a con, I wish they would help assist with the residencies expenses.

Pros of going to school online is that you are challenged by the pace and the amount of information that you have to know to progess and the Cons is the pace no lulls in the learning curve and no excuses

Walden is an excellent school for working professionals who are looking to advance their education. The school has a great set of faculty and staff that are helpful and look to provide us with a great experience. The work load at times seems a bit much but it is manageable. Financial aid is sometimes a slow process but that is expected.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

I believe that the school could focus more on communications with the student that are in dissertations phase. The ease of being on line some times permits the school to be lacking the follow through a student needs to complete the program in a timely manner.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: diversity, quality of education, and networking opportunities. Cons: being 100% online, society does not grant the appropriate recognition of the quality the program and for that graduates have a more difficult time obtaining licensure for professional programs.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2014

Great educational experience. Excellent online experience. I also appreciate meeting students and faculty in Academic Residency learning situations. The lack of up close face to face interaction on a day to day basis would be my only qualm.
