Forget for a moment that adult, learner-centered, graduate education is supposed to be beyond that. That stuff didn't happen. Except for some really stupid stuff regarding the formation of my committee (such as professors from Mexico being listed as faculty, but Forman not allowing them to serve, and then refusing to even explain why), the real problems I had with MIGS are the same one everyone else has with them. THAT's why I left, not because that a-hole Forman doesn't know what he's doing. (Which he admitted to me, by the way.) MIGS is all a pack of lies. They don't have authority to operate in Florida, but they do. They list faculty members who don't know they're listed there. They had a huge judgment against them in Texas. Their owner advertised the school on one of her sites that also offered a term paper service. They don't have any administration. They don't have the authority to award CEU degrees. The CEU doesn't have the authority to award doctorates. And that's just the heinous stuff. Then there's all the bad PR you refer to, which would double or triple the length of this post. Naive or disingenuous, it doesn't matter. This represents an attempt to soft sell MIGS in the best possible light, and to shift the issue from the running of an illegal school to the allegedly typical abuse of a doctoral student. (Which didn't even happen, I repeat. I never began my program.) BTW, I notice you list yourself as a doctoral candidate on another website (employer?). Is that with MIGS? Or perhaps another school? If so, can we assume you've been admitted, completed coursework, comps, and have submitted an acceptable dissertation proposal? I have from first-hand experience that that particular term shouldn't be used lightly.
