What is the national ranking of Walden University?

ResponseCurrently U.S News categorize Walden University as unranked school. 4th tier, online. Online universities are on the rise in terms of educational quality and Walden University is a top institution for higher learning, regarding its programs. The reason for this is two pronged. One, online Universities only in recent years have become such a socio-economic force, and traditional Universities lose business to online Universities.

Walden's programs were designed from the ground up to be delivered as distance education. Most traditional institutions have attempted to adapt their brick-and-mortar programs for online delivery in inappropriate ways; this is perhaps clearest in traditional schools that require students to complete online quizzes and examinations that can only ascertain whether the student is able to look up information, or knows someone else who can. Walden's programs involve discussion and and application of concepts to individual situations that cannot merely be duplicated by other students. That will eventually be reflected in the rankings when it has overcome the prejudice against online programs.

Also, many top colleges are now ranked low tier 1 or at tiers 2-3, and 4. Look at the tier ratings from U.S. News, and see how MIT is below Harvard, and how Harvard is at the top of the tier rating;this is clearly not the case, in terms of research or teaching quality. Many Master's programs at Walden University have the most current students among top online Universities and more graduates in MBA programs than traditional MBA programs, and most of them find gainful employment within 2-3 months.

Tier ratings are very subjective and do not reflect in any way the actual academic quality of an institution.

Is there a scam with miller motte college?

Yes. In our opinion Miller-Motte College is a SCAM. They run the school like a money-hungry pack of wolves.

You will have problems receiving the money they calculate in your financial aid for living expenses, etc. They will tell you that you will get this 'stipend' but good luck because in our experience, you will not.

They will hold the extra money and give you lame excuses as to why you haven't received it and they will always have a 'new date' that you will receive your stipend but the 'new date' just comes and goes while you have no money.

If you are planning on going to school full time and are going to depend on the extra financial aid to help you get through with living expenses RUN NOW, this is NOT THE SCHOOL FOR YOU!

Graduation rate is only 33% - probably due to the fact that students can't sustain themselves but for so long, get discouraged by the way the staff treats them when they ask about their money and are basically forced to quit attending.

Also, DO NOT BELIEVE THE COST OF ATTENDANCE QUOTE THEY GIVE YOU!!! THEY ONLY GIVE YOU THIS TO GET YOU TO SIGN, THEN THEY PLAY AROUND WITH THE ACTUAL COSTS LATER TO FILL THEIR POCKETS!!!

PLEASE, consider other schools before you sign up for Miller-Motte Technical College.

Remember, this is our opinion based on our experience with Miller-Motte Technical School and you should base your decision to attend a school on your own due diligence and research.

How do you transfer earned college credits overseas to US colleges?

Most colleges and universities will require your coursework to be evaluated by an official evaluation agency within the US. This does notguarantee the credits will transfer, however it gives the school something to go on when making a transfer credit decision. As an example, one such agency that evaluates coursework and documentation from outside the US is the World Education Services located in New York City, New York USA. If you place WES into your search engine (such as Google), you will find it. Still, I would check with the college or university first, and inquire about the process they require.

Which US universities are the cheapest for international students?

Often, US universities will have exchange programs with universities in other parts of the world which allow for students to pay the same tuition they normally pay for university even if they study in another country. Check out your home university's study abroad programs and see what they offer. If you are looking to apply to a US university for the duration of getting your full degree, you will likely have to pay the same as out of state students do for each respective school. US Universities vary greatly in terms of tuition so you'll have to do some research about each school that interests you. Some cheaper options in general are CUNY (City University) and SUNY (State University) schools. Good luck!

What is an Ivy League school?

The first recorded usage of the term "Ivy League" was by a sportswriter in 1933 and was a general reference to the older, and therefore "ivy covered," schools in the Northeast. The Ivy League athletic association was formally established in 1954 and now comprises eight schools: Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Princeton, Yale, and the University of Pennsylvania. While most of these schools are certainly capable of providing a good education, it's what you do with your education that counts.

How do you find out what degree you received from loyola in 1978?

Wow. Presuming you devoted at least 4 very critical years of your life to it and made life altering decisions about what your major would be, one can only wonder how you wouldn't know! You could always try reading the Diploma itself. You can contact the school, (like anyone checking your claimed credentials) and confirm one was awarded. You can then even get a copy of the diploma and your transcripts. But let me advise you in advance, if you didn't complete everything to be awarded one, including paying all fee's you had (like library fines), none will be forthcoming.

Virginia Tech

Who was the Virginia Tech killer?

== == Seung-Hui Cho was the Virginia Tech student who went on a shooting rampage (now known as the Virginia Tech Massacre), killing 32 individuals and wounding 25 others.

I was there, I was actually at school when it happened, and my dad used to work in Virginia Tech, and he worked in the building across from the shooting. It was sooo scary, because our school was half a mile away from Virginia Tech, and if you go there, you can see memories of them, like pictures and stuff. So sad! There's still some blood on the sidewalk.

Do you have to take all honors to get into an Ivy League school?

No I have many friends who took a decent amount of honors courses but not all and at the same time managed to get into Stanford, Brown and Harvard. I also have one friend who took only 1 honors course and got into Princeton. However, it does help.

Mormonism
US Colleges and Universities

What percentage of the students at Weber State are LDS?

Public univeristies, such as Weber State, cannot ask the religious affiliations of their students, so it would be impossible to know exactly how many students are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church). However, we can safely assume that the percentage of Mormons at Weber State is similar to the percentage of Mormons in the general area around the university, about 40%.

The Ogden Institute of Religion, which provides classes and services for Mormon students at Weber State, reports 3800 students registered for religious classes. Weber State reports 16,000 full time on-campus students.... So approximately 25% of Weber State students participate in the Mormon Institute program.

When did California State Colleges become California State Universities?

In 1972, the state college system became the California State University and Colleges, and in 1982 the word "colleges" was dropped. A community college typically offers a two-year degree (A.A., A.O.S. etc.) or certificate. A university offers advanced degrees (M.A., Ph.D) in addition to a four-year degree (B.A., B.S....) You can complete about 1/2 of your undergraduate work at a community college and petition to transfer to a participating university. I'm from San Diego where we have an excellent community college system which participates with UCSD (UC system) and SDSU (state system). If you hope to tranfer, just be sure to plan carefully with a college counselor.
