So have you decided on the program yet?
I started WGU in Sep 2011 and love it so far. I should finish my masters in March. I was trying to finish in 6 months but I missed my dead line. I've went to many different types of schools
and I love WGU. I started after I had a baby while on FMLA and found that I really benefit with the competency based model. In the past I would try so hard to always get A's (which most I the times I would earn a B) and be disappointed when my grade became available.
I really like that now I don't have to try and be perfect. Its different then other online classes that I've taken, in that I don't have to prove that I'm working on my school work. I started taking online course at Kaplan, which is a great school but it just was not for me! Some assignments required you to post to messages boards as a part of your grade. I would have been able to do it and I thinks I would have did just fine but WGU appealed more to me in the fact that you complete your assessments and your done. You didn't have to log into chats or always post to message boards. I think a Kaplan type program is great if you need someone to set the rate and due dates for you, where at WGU if you’re not on yourself to complete the courses and assessments, it’s easy to fail. There are times at WGU when working through a course it asks you to post to the message board, but I think it’s just to reach out to others not because it’s a part of your grade.</SPAN></SPAN>
All in all I really like WGU and I would recommend it to others that I know.
