"Overall, the program was positive. The start was very difficult and if it was not for the encouragement of a faculty member, I would not have continued. I'm glad at did though. With every obstacle encountered there was a solution, but one of the main sources of success was in choosing the correct people to be on the committee. Fortunately, the chair selected for me was on task and helpful. The two other committee members were former instructors so I knew them well. Had to fire one committee member because of a lack of cooperation. You have to make decisions like that to make things work. There was another major obstacle as well, but since the school already approved my research questions I could proceed as planned. I'm grateful for the experience, but it was very difficult - as it should be. How does it compare with other programs? I don't know. Would it be easier if I attended a brick and mortar school? Probably not. You get lots of personal attention and direction accessing resources online, but I think it depends on who your chair is and how available he or she is. Everything has to work together for you to be successful. Your effort, the support offered by the school has to be there, the chair and committee members you select have to be supportive and responsive enough in order for you to succeed, otherwise you are wasting time. If you can't get a good team, you probably should quit."

"It doesn't really matter if the mentors all have PhD's if all they do is focus on APA style. I'm not trying to obtain a degree in APA and yet if I get any feedback at all it is almost consistently on nitpicky little APA style problems.This isn't the biggest issue though, please take note! The issue is that the instructors have no input on the syllabus and are not held accountable for what is in the syllabus. Several of my instructors seem to think that they can ignore the syllabus and hold me responsible for requirements not listed therein.The syllabi were rewritten when the school went from a 12 week to an 8 week format for the courses and I have found issues with sloppy syllabi yet my mentor will not take my concerns seriously whatsoever. I filed a grievance with the school and have not received any response that would indicate they are dealing with these issues. I cannot wait to be done, and I will never have dealings with this institution in the future."
