"I previously graduated from a large well known brick and mortar state University a couple of decades ago- going the traditional route which some consider "real" college.I went back to school at WGU to save both a ton of money and to take advantage of working on my second degree at my own pace without traveling to a crowded classroom environment.For anyone who thinks that this online university is "easy", you are so wrong. I found the online curriculum and testing to be as difficult if not more difficult than my state university. Most importantly, you are forced to push yourself as there is no one standing over you holding your hand.If you do not work well alone and are not self disciplined, online studies are probably not for you. WGU is a good online school and you will get a quality degree."

"I'm currently finishing up my first term at WGU and I love it. I'm an extreme introvert so this is the school for me. I honestly hate to be bothered by professors or teachers and I have always learned by myself.My mentor is so helpful and she's so sweet. My admissions process was a bit rocky but it hit it off great. I have all the help that I could imagine.This school is NOT a scam. I swear that I'm an attendee at this moment. I am going for my bachelors in Accounting. I went to two other "in person" schools and they weren't for me. I'm not a mom, or an older adult, I'm 21 and just couldn't find my niche in a regular university. My father helped me find this school and I'm so glad that he did.I love working at my advanced pace and I have learned so much. You HAVE to put in the effort to retain knowledge. You won't be spoon-fed at this school and that's what I absolutely love.Like I said before, I love my mentor but the calls do get a bit annoying. I wish we only had to talk once a month because I'm just a really smart and really competent learner. I hope to earn my degree soon. I cannot wait to get into the workforce. It does help that my dad is a CFO if I have any questions about any class material."
