Newburgh I am not now or ever have been in any way affiliated with Newburgh. what I find interesting about the criticism of Newburgh seems to be from those who are making a critique from a distance based on what, their paradigm of going to a traditional educational institution paying many thousands of dollars and if something does not fit their model it is somehow illegitimate - I suggest the critiques may be more of a reflection of ego and conformity to one's beliefs and could, as a result, be devoid of reason; if I may share a personal story to illustrate my point; many years ago I went to a University in the town I live in - it is a state university fully accredited - I already had one degree but wanted to transfer in and get a Computer Science degree but noticed all of the CS related courses available in the evening did not count towards the CS degree; so, I went in and talked to the Chair.I explained I was a bit miffed and wondered what the deal was - I was married with small 3-children and was working full-time to support my family, and wanted to do my degree at night - his response was, if I wanted to be a serious student and pursue a CS degree at his university then I would quit my day job and go to school full-time during the day, e.g., ego and conformity to one's beliefs. Much of the criticism I read on this site targeted at Newburgh reminds me of that chair's mindset - my way or the highway; instead i would suggest thinking like this, does the school offer value for its product or service? Is the school meeting a need in the community? Does it do a good job at preparing the student for their field/endeavor ? Asking if there is some kind of accreditation is a legitimate question to ask, and if there is none that does not necessarily mean there is something wrong with the school, it simply means if it is not accredited; remember, accreditation is really only so a school can get government money, other than that it is only a reasonable bench-mark one can use to make a decision but it is not an end all be all. These are the kinds of questions we should be endeavoring to answer, not denigrating the school and then list one's degrees or certs as they somehow make you the final word/authority.
