    Congratulations on going into nursing! (And sorry for the late response). But, since it's been awhile, how are the classes going? Do you think you'll take the next step and apply to one of the RN to BSN programs online?

    Hope all is going well!

    After two classes, I dropped out of Northeastern University's Master of Education program... decided against pursuing a degree in Education. That said, I would highly recommend NEU to anyone. I loved the accelerated class format and the instructors were awesome. I wish they offered their Masters in International Relations program online -- if they did, I'd still be pursuing my degree there!

    I went to my local community college (Pasco-Hernando Community College - or PHCC), but due to my son having autism that never really worked for me.

    Then tried my hand at becoming a surgical tech from Central Florida Institute (CFI) but again, traditional school didnt work out. And honestly, I discovered I really couldnt care less about medical stuff. Did ok in the classes, but I was bored and/or confused the whole time. So i left.

    Then I tried my hand at National College of Business and Technology, but not only was the college a joke, I realized pretty quick that business is NOT for me. I did well in the classes, but I really hated them. So I knew I had to leave.

    Then I enrolled at Ashford University to get a BA in Child Development, but I left after a year because not only does that college SUCK, I realized I wanted to do something bigger. I left with a 3.6 gpa and 10 transferable classes under my belt, so it wasnt a total loss. But that college is not good and Im glad I left.

    I wanted to make a difference on a global stage, see the world, make my voice heard. So I left, did a lot of research, and ended up here at Schiller International University. Im absolutely loving it and the classes. And Im a lot happier getting a degree in International Relations and Diplomacy.

    You better be careful, or you might get accused of shilling for ASU! :)

    Of course, if you are going to shill, ASU would be a good school to advocate.

    Nope. I learned about ASU from here. I was given the link and info from people here, so I CANT be a shill. But I did take the advice and leave SIU for ASU. And Im glad I did. :D

    I dropped out of two institutions:

    APUS (American Public University) because I didn't like their online format, and the first class was an introduction to online learning that was required. I took the class and found it to be pretty pathetic.

    I wanted to switch gears and go for a BA in Religious Education at Global University. They also had a class that was required as distance learning. I should have realized that I didn't like these classes from my first experience. I enrolled and then it dawned on me... I had this class before and I didn't like it so I dropped out of immediately. Talk about history repeating itself. LOL.

    Now, I'm at Liberty and love the format and the coursework. :)

    i never been dropped out....how does it feel? dropping out not all means that your bad right? but for some reasons...

    There are many reasons for dropping out:
    Boredom in general
    Boring courses
    Boring Professors
    Lack of Funds
    Lack of ability
    Lack of motivation
    Lack of desire to pursue the program or course
    Lack of good study skills
    External Influences
    Program or courses not compatible with learner's needs
    Feelings of isolation (not connecting with the program, teacher or other students)

    Dropping out may be a good news story if it motivates you towards another direction to complete your goals.

    Surprising, considering your poor grammar and syntax.

    So you "heard theres this one guy." Why don't you just be honest and tell us that it's you?

    If it is indeed him, it is a good case for not contacting him - his grammar and punctuation alone rule him out.

    HaHaHa!!! Wow. Talk about another life. I have since washed out of Schiller and am super happy at Arizona State. Best decision I ever made, leaving Schiller for ASU. MUCH better choice, price, and accreditation (NCBT, CFI, and SIU all NA. PHCC, Ashford and ASU all RA. RA is definitely the way to go!) I do wish ASU offered this program, however. But all in all, transferring to ASU has been EXCELLENT. :D

    I bailed out of Full Sail's online MFA-Creative Writing program. I really liked the program, however, I decided to give the good old MBA a try. Therefore, I will be attending FIU's Professional MBA Program. This is a butt-in-seat program, while, FIU does have an online MBA program, I decided to do it F2F. The program is 18 months long and classes meet on Saturdays.
