I don’t think that online schools are just in it for the money because if that was the case, I wouldn’t be learning like I am. My school is teaching me a lot of useful information. Although I also looked into Strayer University and DeVry University, I chose to attend University of Phoenix because it has a good reputation. In addition, the admissions advisors at University of Phoenix were kind, and didn’t act like they were trying to sell me anything or push me into a program.
Another reason I think that my online school is legitimate is that I have seen 1 of Phoenix’s brick-and-mortar campuses. In fact, I am located just a few miles away from the University of Phoenix campus in Reno, so I knew that I could use the resources center on campus if I wanted to. There is a library and a student lounge on campus, just like any other university setting. My school also offers online resources like tutoring. I wasn’t aware that they had all of these resources when I was looking into going to school there, so it has been a pleasant surprise.
