"I did not graduate, I withdrew. Walden University is inept and unable to provide clear direction. If you are considering going here- RUN! The leadership has changed so many times since I started, and advisers were numerous- I lost count after 14... No one can give a stratight answer and no two have the same answer. Misguidance, misinformation is the only speciality that Walden has. After 8 long years and 400K in Debt, I am done. It is not worth it. They let anyone into any program even if the background doesnt match. They are just money hungry and do not really care about the student or their success. The department I was in had 5 maybe 6 or more different chairs during 8 years. It has been a dispointment and waste of money, with ZERO return on the investment as I cannot find a job in the field since I have no clinical experience or degree to back the administration portion. WALDEN SHOULD BE SHUT DOWN! No one knows what is going on there and there is zero continuity bewteen deparments and systems. EPIC FAIL! I would love to give them less than one star but that is not an option."

"Overall, I do not think the program is worth the amount of money that you spend. The courses readings typically have nothing to do with the assignment. Or the articles are so out of date. When including information in a paper, references should not be more than 5 years old. Therfore, this leaves you to do a lot of research on your own. There are a lot of discussion board that really seems so lower level of academia. Some of the other assignments are useless such as writing a paper on how to conduct research."

"I have read some posts about the financial aid office at Walden and they are true, They are awful and I expressed that in my last student survey. I also do not agree with the Residency you are required to take that cost you in addition to your tuition $1375.00 and if there is not one close by then you have to fly and book a hotel while your there which is additional money, and it is all for nothing. I went to one and I did not learn anything new, or anything that could have been taught online. Just another way for this university to suck money out of people seeking their doctorate. The teaching staff at Walden is good, really have not had a problem with them and the subject your taking for whatever semester always has good reference material, good amount of time to answer discussions, and turn in papers."

"This University is designed for you! It requires one to be dedicated and self motivated. I had the best support from my mentors. College is not easy and may times, people get the concept mixed up. For instance, looking for an easy way to earn a degree! It's all up to you...not the University you chose. Their responsibility is to guide and assist when called upon."
Shocked!

"Currently I am in my second quarter in the DBA program and I am desperate to transfer! I'm not sure who is giving all these praises and excellent reviews, but I know from first hand experience that this DBA program is geared only towards writing your final project than learning anything. I would expect a doctoral program to be much more rigorous and challenging- and it is not! I have already contacted the school where I obtained my Bachelors and have begged them to help me transfer. I've made a grave mistake attending Walden, and I'm getting the &%$ out of there!"
