Walden Master I/O Psychology -compentency based $1100 - My journey
#1
Little background first

-MBA - Capella - flexpath finished in 2 months (1 term)
-MSN informatics - WGU finished in 6 months ( 1 term)
-Currently attending a respected program for my Doctorate in nursing (traditional)

I started Walden new compentency based I/O program

Walden is a little unorganized, They accepted me based on an unofficial transcript. I had 14 days for the official to be processed.

I was able to transfer in 15 credits. 10 of those credits were the dreaded graduate-level research stat classes.

each credit hour consists of doing a super simple discussion question. a quiz or two you can fail because they give unlimited chances to take them. Then a big paper (10-12 pages).

Please note I said for each credit hour and not for each class.

The discussion and papers so far are super easy. I've already 50% done. They said I was one of the first to sign up and they are still working out the bugs. 

I can say that if I were using this degree as a stepping stone for a PhD program or a career change. I would steer clear. The program is too easy, not enough stats or research.  I cant see how writing a paper for stats or research would cut the mustard.

Ok, guys ask me anything.

Just because, plus I'm getting my DNP in psych. Having a psychology degree won't hurt my resume and may help me stand out a little.

Also, it's $1100 for the program which I pay ~$366/mo for 3 months. kinda a no brainer.

I'd like to know more about the MBA and how you did that. Did you have transfer credits? They don't have a capstone that takes a month?
May not finish second TESU degree, but I'm close.
First Masters complete. Working on another.
TESU BSBA (with ASNSM) in March 2018.

no, capstone is just every other class except your instructor has to approve your topic. plus you have to do a betterup interview'

Hi! I do have some questions for you:

When you said the capstone was every other course, what did you mean by that?
Is this degree 36 credits?
What is a betterup interview?

Thank you in advance!
TESU BALS March 2020!
