My own personal review of some of the schools I have been part of, whether in teaching or in learning.

I have ranked these from Highest to Lowest - For the Quality of Learning Provided 


Northcentral University (NCU) touts unparalleled one-on-one faculty mentoring, where they teach individuals not classes. This is accurate to say since courses are available monthly at the request of the student learner. In theory this means that student learning is individual and courses are often offered as a unique one-on-one faculty/student learning experience. Additionally, courses were found to be challenging and rigorous matching the expectations of studies required at a higher earning institution. However, this evaluator found that NCU failed in promise that learners can learn at their own individual pace, since NCU places continuous enrollment requirements on each student. This does not meet the needs for flexibility of today's adult learners. NCU seems dedicated in attempt to providing students with the personal attention they look for when pursuing advanced education. But again in theory often this only holds true to the extent that mentors are assigned for each student. This reviewer found that NCU fell short here in that the often mentors were slow (to almost non-existent) to respond. This falls at the expense of student advancement which can also prove costly in tuition burdens for course re-work.
