Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

I love the thorough knowledge but financial aid needs to be drastically improved. If you are not a teacher, nurse or military, you have to rely on student loans that run out due to cost of education going up yearly.

The pros of my graduate program is the ability to network with other professionals within my career choice allowing me to understand the issues I will need to address once I graduate. I have not experienced any cons of program.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

I, J. D., am very excited and content with being a current student at such a diverse, well established politically endorsed University. The online tools used at Walden University allow me to broaden my understanding, knowledge and perception, of today's trends in social networking of the worldwide cloud based community. Even though I have had limited time at the University, and began using the social links online with other platforms, LinkedIn, Indeed and more, I am excited and focused on developing and sharing the how to make such a wonderful conversion to consumers from both my personal and professional levels worldwide happen with ease. The academic setting of its usefulness worldwide is very detailed and the guidelines, policies and procedures used to teach, train and mentor professional well rounded scholars is very outstanding. Encouragement for others to blend into the social changes will be implemented by me and other graduates easily, productively and successfully when our academic skill-sets transform into business agents. Migration of a new management platform is being embedded in our think tank as we complete weekly assignments. We are re-accessing or logical approach using humane values. I wish all my Walden Colleagues the greatest success and of course I must prove my reliability of their structured program, given to future and advancing scholars as myself, by doing what I do well while in the learning environment, by remaining teachable and share by launching a very successful productive and successful trademark of myself worldwide. I rate Walden as one of the Top Ten Universities Worldwide, and I, Jerryetta Dawson, am proud to be a productive participant of their diverse educational environment.

Some of these things did not apply because Walden is an online university. However, I did rate because in my program I did have to have some in-person time, and I applied that experience.

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2018

The program is geared to help future counselor educators. The faculty are accessible and care for the students. There is one con, some teachers take 3 to 4 weeks to grade papers, this limits the amount of time for improvement if any is needed.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

Honestly, my graduate program provides a platform for all of its students to build upon through every course being taken. It feels as if all the information you have learned can be applied throughout which is great. There are essentially no gap in between the material you learn and how its applicable towards future courses. The only con may be derived is that my program is totally online and me as a student is not required to come into a physical campus anytime during enrollment. Sometimes it is a "good thing" to come and spend a week or so being on a campus of some sort, however it is an online program!
