I began a program at University of Phoenix online and in the beginning everything was fine. After taking a couple classes I realized I was learning absolutely nothing and the teachers hardly seemed to know the material. When I tried to leave the school I got a lot of hassle. Even now that I transferred to another school they keep emailing me and asking why I dropped out of college and why I'm giving up on myself. :roll:

Tell them you didn't give up on yourself that you have more respect for yourself than they seemed to have. Sorry you had a bad experience--that's the first one I've heard of.

It's horrible that they are saying things like that! Have you complained to a supervisor or something?

My aunt had some sort of issue where they seemed to be purposely delaying her from starting classes and she complained, got some money back, and started going to another distance education program at a state college. I don't know the specifics though.

I've heard other negatives about that college. I think it was about their accreditation not being good and having a hard time getting a job because of it. I'm not surprised they are still sending emails, but isn't there a way to stop them?

They really don't care - they just want you back as a student, because they make money off it. But they try to word it so it looks like it is in your best interest.

That's the impression that I get from UoP as well. They just want your money. They want you to think that they are concerned but really it is just like any other type of marketing.
