Degree: Software Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

This online school has impressed in more ways than one. I did my undergraduate at an online university as well and was thoroughly dissatisfied with my experience at the other. However, at Walden University they have showed nothing but the utmost support through the admission process to getting setup for classes and so forth. I have taken one class and the structure is challenging but gives you everything you need to succeed. I know most reviews i've been finding about the school have been mostly negative but all schools will be the same its just what you take out of the experience and the use of tools to succeed. Unfortunately for my undergrad program there was very little support. professors hardly responded and professors were very unprofessional. Definitely check out walden

Walden University is a great online school. The academic advisors have been great. Faculty is awesome about responding in a timely manner. The cons are that Waldenu University requires an extreme amount of time.

Walden University is not your traditional online school. The school has a load of support systems in place for anyone looking to obtain their degree online. Walden's residency programs are also outstanding, in my opinion. It is definitely a school that challenges students to make a positive social change throughout local communities.

I love the flexibility of the online environment, especially since I work full time as a staff registered nurse and work different days and hours every week.

This is a great program for those who cannot afford to go to graduate school and work. That was the primary reason that I chose it. I have learned as much, if not more, than I did at a traditional brick and mortar school.

I have spoken to several people who are pleased with their education form Walden. I will give them a chance. You can only make a decision once you experience it for yourself.

Several categories in the rating system such as housing are not applicable to me. I have been in the doctoral program for 4 yrs and enjoy my current mentor's feedback. I have had some technology issues with the writing center but cannot comment on the actual personal as the technology issues prohibited an interaction. They have added virtual residencies to the doctoral programs which has saved money on travel and enabled me to continue to pursue my degree. Overall, I like the program and have recommended it to others.
