After months of going back and forth, I finally decided to apply for a PhD program. I was admitted into the U of Cumberlands Leadership PhD and will be pursuing a criminal justice specialization. I am excited and a bit nervous at the same time. As a small criticism... I was not impressed with the application process. I had to stay on top of them. I almost had to pay twice for transcripts after they failed to download them. It took multiple emails and about two weeks to get it straightened out. I actually received warnings from two different universities that my transcripts were about to expire because they failed to download them. Once I got through the admissions office though, the leadership office staff have been great. They've been very easy to work with and very accommodating and professional. I look forward to working with them. I think we have a few U Cumberlands people here. I'd love to speak with you privately and hear about your experience so far.
