I've heard good things about Haydel too. Personally, I think the professor does matter. Even though they use the same rubric they don't all have the same requirements. Some require original research, some don't. Some provide sample papers, some don't. Some interact with the students on a daily basis and some are MIA half the time. My professor was awesome - very quick to respond and he gave sample papers. Those sample papers were very, very different from what has been posted on this forum. If I turned anything in that looked like those sample papers I would have been marked down. Fortunately he gave a lot of instructions and as long as I followed them I was always fine.

Thank-you! I'm glad you had a good professor; he sounds great. I hope my professor doesn't require original research!

Dr. James Cody is fantastic!!! He provides examples and he is very responsive. Dr. Cody provides feedback in a non-judgmental manner. If he is available, choose him.

Unfortunately he wasn't but I did read wonderful reviews for him. I went with Dr. Haydel. 
I'm glad you had a good experience with him. Thank-you for responding!

Okay I'm going to start my capstone next month and Haydel seems to be a good choice. Now my main question is can we write out paper about what we want or does the instructor choose?
I have been here enjoying learning and validating my studies for many years. This forum has a tremendous amount of information, and support.

Dr. Black is awesome! U was dreading the capstone but Dr. Black made it bearable. He is a TESU alumni so it felt nice having a professor that has "been there". He makes himself available and grades assignments quickly. If there is something wrong with an assignment he will provide his phone number so you can call him until midnight or 12:30.He wants you to succeed but expect to work hard no matter who your mentor is. You will learn a lot a come out of this experience ready to take on the world ?

You get to pick your topic. If your instructor requires original research, some topics will probably not work. Dr. Haydel does require original research.
You then come up with a major question and sub-questions related to the topic. The instructor responds with feedback on whether your questions are appropriate or will work. 

As far as taking it next month, I'm not sure if Dr. Haydel is teaching it next month. I think instructors teach it every three months, starting again after the last class has already finished. I'm sure there will be other good instructors though to choose from.

And thank-you for the advice! If I survive this course, I certainly will!
