Well I was a real student there, and I can tell you from first hand experience that this PhD program is the pits. The saddest thing is that this horrible program is "regionally accredited," which is supposed to indicate it has been reviewed and meets the standards of an accredited college. Don't believe that either. There are diploma mills out there with higher standards.
The dissertation portion of this program is in complete chaos. There is no meaningful supervision or direction. There is little interaction with your assigned "mentor" and what you do get is useless at best. If you can get any response at all it is usually cynical and counterproductive, replete with lies and treachery. The administration tries to protect itself by blaming the students. They have your money and there are plenty of other suckers out there who will shell out hard cash for a dream that turns into a nightmare.
This new dean says the school lost money five out of the last seven months of 2007 and it is bleeding red ink. There's a good chance this place won't even be in business by the time you graduate. What good is a "degree" from a place nobody can find to verify your study? I'm glad I left this place and went to a better school.
Northcentral is substandard. If you want a substandard "degree" for the price of a real one, this is the place. If you want to deal with an administration in chaos, with programs in chaos, with "mentors" in chaos, this is the place for you. If you want a real school with a real PhD program, try somewhere (anywhere) else.
