If there isn't an advantage conferred by attending online doubtful in my case , there seems a tacit acknowledgment, in the frenzied innovation, and a vision for near term excellence. They put as many road blocks in place to deter cheating as any modern college. I do miss my free time but this is worth the investment. I am elated that I did not. I have even had books loaned to me from outside libraries via the Interlibrary Loan System.
My life has changed in ways I never thought about when I started the program and my skills are cutting edge now. If you honestly believe your job prospects will be effected by attending an online college then do your research. This is environmentally and economically friendly, but if you are like me, it is not very convenient and can actually become a problem if you are visually impaired, or have attention span problems. You will work, you will learn, or you will learn the objectives, or you will not pass the class. My only beef is with the technical infrastructure. I understand the word requirements to some degree, but I really think people would provide more substantive answers if they were not having to meet a ridiculous word requirement.
The university system fosters an environment that promotes a life of learning for its constituents and uses feedback from its participants and supporters to improve the quality of its teaching, learning, and support. The amount of reading assigned is astronomical, which is partly why I hardly cracked a book while I was here. So, naturally I am quite pleased with my experience. I enjoyed the academic experience as an online learner. If you are not passionate enough to go outside the class room and do your own research, you may have problems. It is a small program with typically less than 10 people graduating a year.
You should submit a full application with all of your supplemental materials and your standardized test scores directly to the Washington College of Law. Contact the school you are attending to find out more. Wikipedia is not a source that is acceptable at this college. I want to stress that in the online learning environment you will get out of the classes what you are willing to put into them. Some programs have additional requirements. This is not college where you will have professors there teaching you.
The process is generally simple and they changed over to a new system several months ago. It was not necessarily a good learning experience, but not a reason to bash the college and hurt their reputation because I, myself, got frustrated and threw an adult temper tantrum, attempting to make the college bad on a place where real reviews should be written. This will be the same at every college you attend. I learned so much in regards to human nature, human behavior, and life development, which in turn, will help me to seek out and obtain employment in my preferred area of interest. One thing I like is the school uses books that can be found on Kindle which saves the student money and can be put on multiple machines. The courses are very interesting, the professors keep students engaged and promote an environment for students to truly delve into the course topics. If you want your degree to be worth more than a roll of toilet paper, save yourself the time and aggravation and apply to a real, traditional school with a rigorous program.
My wife has experienced the same at each of her brick and mortar colleges. One of the last things, you will have hit-and-miss professors here. If you are interested in merit aid consideration, we strongly encourage you to submit your application before the priority deadline. The final international student deadlines refer to applicants who require a new F-1 or J-1 visa. These people have to make a living, and if you read the review by the faculty member who worked at this college, these programs are more like part-time work for them, and they are not devoting their attention to them. If you want to do it right the first time, this school is the place to do it.
I am a full time student, employee, mother of two young children, and part-time designer with Origami Owl. Starting out was a little rough. Again, this is entirely on the student to have an education worth learning from, but they chose to half-ass their degree and got what they put in without doing the work. I tell all those who have those reservations that I have been witness to a few of the programs for the School of Security and Global Studies; they are fully recognized in the military and the federal civilian side of the government. My life is quite busy, and it was not practical for me to attend a brick and mortar school. You will need a support system.
Choosing American Public University was one of the best decisions I have made and can honestly say that what I learned has enhanced my thought process and decision-making abilities. The professors that I have had have been excellent. There are things that you have to learn the school's process for and learn that financial aid has potential to take forever or get hung up anywhere that you go. That said, in the recent years the financial aid department has gotten better. I will keep this brief. The program requires 32 hours of core courses, 33 hours of major courses, 30 hours of general education and 20 hours of electives.
