"Great Academics, But Difficult Financial Aid"
The standard classroom set up and questions were excellent to superb. The 8-12 page "Reflection Papers," which are research papers required to be written in APA format were of equal challenge to any undergraduate paper in a top tier University anywhere, period. Most of the professors were involved and gave excellent advice, but some did not participate much at all. The open book "objective assessments," were easy. Some professors added extra requirements to the discussion posts in the classroom discussion and research papers, while some did not. All of the 5 week classes were challenging in at least 2 ways, but some were challenging in 5 or more ways. None of the Reflection papers were easy except the first one for the AU required course. If you like to write or need to learn how to write top notch papers comparable to Ivy League or a top University; AU is the place. If you are a bad test taker, the tests are cake, but some professors will dock serious points off for just one typographical error in the discussion posts or for one APA formatting not in agreement with their year of APA publication.
