Complaint Review: Walden University - Minneapolis Minnesota
Walden University The "so-called" university accepts anyone who can afford to pay. Minneapolis Minnesota
Despite the negative reviews, I decided to give the school a chance since they seemed to offer valuable course work. The main issue is that because they will accept anyone who can pay their ridiculous tuition, most of the students are from Nigeria and can't speak or write proper English. At a PhD level this is a problem and a red flag. Regardless of which course I took over the last years, passing it was a joke, as are most of the students, and the professors, who are clearly happy to collect a pay check for their minimum effort in posting assignments.
The reading and assignments were set many years ago and they keep repeating them. By not updating the couse work, you can find dozens of websites from which you can purchase answers to assignments that were written by tutors who wrote the homework for other students years ago --most probably for the poor Nigerian students, whom as I said, have no chance to graduate. The professors have only to assign the syllabus they are given. Generally, they seem uninterested in teaching and make very small efforts to help the students learn. In general, the feedback I received was generic and not very helpful. They do not use videos or chats to communicate with students. Instead they refer you to Youtube videos available to anyone.
At every residency, which is also very expensive, American students would often sit together and eventually the conversation would turn to the same topic --how the school allowed so many Nigerian students, who were clearly going to fail, repeat courses and be a nuissance to those of us who are fluent in English. And we all complained that participating in the weekly discussion groups was torture, given the poor writing from these students and the obligation to read all of their deficient posts. In the process, the school collects thousands from these ill-fated graduates, while quailty students learn little from the enrollees who are not prepared at the PhD level .
The kicker is that when you are near the end of your course work, you are not prepared to begin the dissertation process. You're left on your own to fail and are blamed for not providing quality work.
I suppose the reason is to eliminate as many students as possible, after they've collected thousands from them, so they do not receive PhDs and embarass the school.
To summarize, I feel unprepared to enter a university as faculty or to perfom a job I could apply for with a PhD.
