My question is when will this money-making scheme being promoted as an academic institution be exposed for what it truly is. Capella is a joke.
Since Capella is being traded on the NYSE, is it an academic institution or a business? The person who created this scheme is GENIUS. Selling unsuspecting learners a dream at the expense of maxed out financial aid and loans and leaving the program empty handed. Oh no my bad, not empty handed, but with a crap load of debt in tow.
The grand design is to charge exorbitant tuition at the rate of $4,500 per quarter. Yes, I said quarter! In the dissertation phase, there is little to no contact with mentors and little to no feedback quarter after quarter. I am convinced that mentors and the committee purposely do not review your work, so they can continue the vicious cycle of taking people's money.
Suddenly, $4,500 into the quarter, you realize that you have not progressed any further than when you started. A major investigation is needed and all learners should be refunded all the money paid into this joke and allowed to pursue a real education elsewhere.
