Some assignments are pointless, I am currently in PCN-515 and most weekly papers are personal essays yet these require references?

I am also well versed in APA format, some facilitators (I hesitate to call them professors) give full credit on APA while others will take off points for APA formatting.

I've been using APA for over 10 years and my format certainly doesn't change from class to class.

I have been just ignoring the negatives and focusing on my own work and learning the subject. It is not like a traditional university where you can withdraw at the beginning.... That being said I also hold an MBA, a teaching certificate and undergrad degree in finance. This is the most frustrating program I've ever worked with.

The other classmates seem to be on a different level- a much lower academic level.

My professor was non-existent as he felt free to access You Tube videos were an acceptable substitution for teaching. They charged me nearly $2,000 without applying financial aid for a non-education with an absent professor. Since internal review board (IRB) approvals for each student's capstone project have taken such a long time for GCU to complete - many students in the DNP program have been forced to take additional extension courses in order to initiate, complete, write-up, and submit their Capstone projects. Additionally, the program now requires DNP students to have their Capstone project reviewed and edited by a professional editor which costs another $3,000 to $5,000.

The DNP students are further required to stipulate that their editors submit an affidavit to the school attesting to what they changed or recommended be changed.

Papers are required, but they are rather short (less than 2000 words) and geared at helping you show what you've learned. I told her how I work full time nights and to please to to call me after 3pm, yet she calls me every single day at 2pm.

If you take the online program, you can guaranteed do well as long as you consistently meet deadlines and follow the grading rubrics. The only way to get communication across is to email them because then it is a legal document. They are polite and prompt and very helpful so kudos to them. When I signed up for the program they were very misleading and told me the program was set up so that I could work and go to school. This program has been nothing but stress and I had the opportunity to talk to some of my other classmates during our CLC group projects and they expressed the same thing.

The teachers are very hit or miss, but I have had a couple that were awesome. I truly believe there are better schools out there.

Some professors were clearly just there to grade and post bogus responses though. I did not do my research and now I am stuck in this program. Make sure you do your research and read the fine print before you sign because otherwise you will be surprised by all the stuff they didn't tell you upfront. I am about 1/2 way done with the online portion of the Masters in Counseling program.

Thta seems like it may be changing though as GCU has an annoying habit of randomly assigning "Student Instructors" to these courses in order to save money.
