Seriously, I don't have anything against Walden University. I would never go there, don't know anyone who would and would never even consider it. But if you have no other choice, I guess that it's slightly better than not going to college. Just expect to be laughed at by most perspective future employers. I only found this page because it comes up in the top 5 google searches when you search college rankings or best colleges or something. Weird eh?
The school is the bottom of the barrel of accredited colleges. It is the community college of online schools. The only reason to go to Walden University is because you can't get in anywhere else.
Their professors are all part-time employees who are usually employed at other colleges at teach at Walden for the extra money. All of their classes are canned and don’t really require any real learning. Just write papers and do the minimum and you’ll have a worthless degree in no time at all.
The people who run the small office in Minneapolis, MN change regularly and are usually unhappy with their lives. The school goes through deans and heads of departments so quickly that even the staff jokes about it.
This is the college for anyone who wants to brag about having a degree while they’re restocking the shelves at Target.
In reality, they are a real school like a cubic zirconia is a real diamond. They are to colleges like Showgirls is to fine cinema. If they were a food product, they would be a frozen TV dinner. Attending Walden University is like telling the world that your local community college was alright, but you just didn't feel like studying that hard.
The only way that you could possibly go lower than Walden University is if you didn't go at all.
She claimed she was trying to be the first one in the family to get an education. I guess the type of education didn't matter. I graduated from traditional colleges and universities and went on to get my law degree (a juris doctorate) and a post-doctoral degree (all from traditional schools where people knew me), and I got a very nice, fun, and high paying job. I guess she didn't get the memo.
