I wish I could dispel some of those horrible reviews but I can't. I was not in the FACT program so it may be a little different but I was accepted into the RN-MSN program for the Spring semester 2012. I completed all my requirements and even sent my non-refundable $500 deposit. My advisor (who was also going to be one of my instructors) was supposed to go through a small orientation with me. The office kept sending me emails stating that I had not met this requirement. Problem was, my advisor wasn't calling me back. I tried calling and emailing...nothing. Finally, I got ahold of her secretary who told me that she had been out. (For months? Who is taking over for her while she is out?) Then, late December, I got my financial aid package. The loans weren't going to cover the tuition. My FAFSA contribution was $0. So, I contacted the financial aid office. Do you think they offered any assistance? No. That was pretty much the straw that broke the camel's back. I felt like if I am going to pay this much money then I should get pretty good service. The experience was horrible. I decided at the last minute (I think Jan 3) to contact Widener for a Jan 9 start date. They were on winter break but the advisor called me back the same day from her cell phone and bent over backwards to get me in. I have nothing but good things to say about Widener. The advisor from Jefferson finally emailed me back the day after my acceptance to Widener. I told her the situation. I am sure they have plenty of people willing to pay all that money and be treated that way but I wasn't one of them. Also, if I couldn't get ahold of her for a basic orientation, how was the year going to go? I lost my $500 deposit but I feel like I made a good choice. That's just me. I am sure there are many who have had good experiences there. I'm just not one of them!
