If it is a good school (Many of the state universities, Georgetown, Vanderbilt, Regis, Cincinnati, etc), the person who earned their degree online may be more self-directed and better able to manage their time very well. The for profit, do it as fast as you can, we accept anyone who can pay the $ are probably not so good, IMHO. Many of the folks I know who went to Walden, South U, Western Govs, etc. do very little practicum/clinical time. They often do "projects" at work, while many of these other schools
do not allow work time to count as school time. There is a great benefit to being exposed to "how it is done" somewhere else. I do think, U Phoenix is good as far as the for profits go.
