I have heard by word of mouth that Webster University is a great school, which is why I chose to attend there for my Bachelor's Degree in Legal Studies. I have come to the conclusion that the people who have said good things about Webster most likely were in different degree programs than I am, because I am not too thrilled with the way the Legal Studies program is ran, nor with the administrative procedures of the school. On a positive note, the professors they employ are very knowledgeable and skilled in the area of law, which I like; but, the only course option in the Legal Studies department is 8 week courses versus full semester (16 week) courses. I feel that with only 8 weeks to learn subjects that pertain to the law, which is a vast area of knowledge with many intricate rules and regulation, I haven't gotten the proper training on even simple things such as how to use a legal library. I have had to do a lot of extra work on my own to teach myself these skills because I don't feel that I have had enough professional instruction, which is what I am supposed to be paying for. The other thing I am unhappy with is the administrative side of the way the Legal Studies department is ran. I have only gone through two semesters at Webster, and 3 days before classes were supposed to start in both the fall and spring semesters I received a phone call saying that multiple classes had been cancelled due to low enrollment. I completely understand that from a "cost effective" standpoint, but letting students know that their classes they chose are cancelled only 3 days before those classes are supposed to begin is unacceptable in my book. It was very difficult for me to have to rearrange my schedule to accomodate new classes that were on different days than the ones that had gotten cancelled, and in two instances there were no other classes available for me to take in the Legal Studies department, so I was told I had to take classes from an outside department and substitute them for my Legal Studies classes to keep on track with my degree. I feel like that robbed me of two classes full of some of the legal information I actually needed since I had to end up taking classes that have nothing to do with my degree. The cancelling of my classes also lost me money as I rented the books for the classes I had thought I would be taking, only to have to return them right away and turn around and rent different books for the new classes. I am currently waiting to start my third semester at Webster in 3 weeks and am hesitant to purchase my textbooks because of the concern that more classes will be cancelled. In summary, the only reason I am still at Webster is because it is the only American Bar Association accredited university in Saint Louis at which I can earn my Legal Studies Bachelors Degree. I would not recommend Webster University to anyone seeking any degree other than Legal Studies.

I just wanted to comment and add that Kayla Womble's review is right on spot. I have attended Webster majoring in Legal Studies and I was not happy with their Legal Studies department at all. Robin Higgins is very hard to get a hold of if you and is very reluctant to help out. I will be switching my major. I am glad I am not the only one who feels like the Legal Studies department is not good.

I have nothing but positive to say about my experience (Denver Campus). The professors are knowledgeable in their field and the staff is extremely helpful and responsive. The class sizes are small and the amount of interaction with the professor is the best I've ever had in my college career without a doubt. I have recently moved on to a new position in my company and my degree at Webster was part of the reason.

I became a Webster University Student in the fall of 2011 since then I have slightly adjusted to the way things go on campus here. Even though I am a non-traditional students I have found resources that are available to people such as myself. I enjoy the cirriculum here and for the most part the instructors I have had the pleasure to meet are very professional and indept. I would reccommend Webster University to students who are serious about making a difference in their live and the lives of others.

Webster University is not the only university/college I've had the opportunity to attend, and I can say with a great deal of sincerity and confidence that it is by far the best institution I've experienced thus far.

I believe if you really want to succeed, you can here at Webster. The faculty here is top notch and they really care about their students and their student’s success. It shows in the amount of time they give in the classroom and outside of the classroom. I haven't had an instructor that was unavailable to me for additional assistance or questions; as a matter of fact they encourage it!

And while Webster University is more expensive I believe its well worth it. I don't feel like just a number here. I have a name and a voice. I believe that when I've accomplished my goal of obtaining a degree here at Webster I will have everything, and I do mean everything I need to be competitive in the field of Computer Science and do well. I know this may sound like a commercial for Webster, however until one has experienced the commitment to excellence and care they have here it's hard to express without sounding a little cheesy.

The class sizes are great here too. I remember being a senior graduating from high school and being concerned about sitting in this coliseum like class room and being expected to learn anything. No longer Tracy but student 117 out of 150. That's definitely not the issue here. The classes are manageable for both the instructor and the student.

If someone was interested I would tell them to schedule a day here. I would tell them not to take my word for it, but to experience the Webster University difference for themselves. In the end make the choice best for you and your educational goals because at the end you're stuck with the bill.
