I find it interesting that so many of the reviews are about financial aid or cost, but not much, if anything, about what was learned. I am frankly tired of reading comments from people who stayed for the entire program, but hate the school after they graduated. If it was so horrible, why did you stay? I have been to brick-and-mortar schools and, except for parties, there was no real benefit. I sat in classes for 16 weeks at a time, listening to someone drone on about a topic that could have been completed in 8 weeks or less. As for the learning teams, stop worrying about if someone else passes or fails and worry about if YOU do. I worked in the learning teams, and getting organized was the key. We got all the projects done in time, even when someone dropped the ball. Not pulling a load in a learning team was something to report to the facilitator, then move on. If the person passed, failed or took a rocket to the moon has no bearing on whether or not I succeed. I recommend not whining and mind your own business. Just be glad you won't have that person as an employer, employee, or co-worker becaus they most likely do the same thing at work. I teach as well. I am also sick of students expecting the faculty to open their heads and pour the material in without the student having to contribute. If you want to learn, you will. If you expect me to do all the work, you'll find yourself sitting in a dark room all alone. The faculty is called "facilitator" for a reason. The purpose is to assist your learning not to do it for you. If you can learn to put a table together by reading the directions, why do you need to have your hand held to learn in school? If you have a degree and can't find a job - guess what? There is a recession going on, in case you didn't hear. There are plenty of people with way more experience, knowledge and education than you who are out of a job, so what makes you think you are the top candidate? The same thing is happening to graduates from Harvard Business School, Yale, Wharton, London School of Economics, etc. Stop whining! You are not in that boat alone! Just recognize that you need to keep putting one foot in front of the other and you will get where you need to be. But don't blame your education, your degree, or your school for everything wrong with your life.

UoP is known for being not so honest in their business activities. They will add courses to the end of your degree period that were not on your admissions agreement, change your counselors from finance and admission millions of times, and then when it comes time for your to graduate or be in front of the board there is one reason after another you must pay for the course again and again for no credit but get an "A". To top it off, when their accounting department makes a mistake, they send it to your credit report as a charge off when you have presented the funds and that the fund were not returned even with a letter from the lender saying that the funds were never returned. Find a different school...
