"Not sure if UOP is for me"
I'm starting my 5th class. I'm very frustrated overall. I've never been to college and at 38 decided to go. My first class was great, loved the material, the teacher was excellent, I was excited about getting an education. But the last 3 classes have been nothing but frustration. One of the selling points is that their teachers are working professionals. My real world translation would be that they are people who work all day and are too tired or uninterested to teach effectively. I went to campus classes because it was cheaper and supposedly it would take less time during the week. In reality the teachers fill the time with useless debates, and talking about things that have nothing to do with the assignment. The learning team arrangement is awful. Most people in class can't spell or form complete sentences, yet everyone passes, you're stuck working with people getting a free ride, have to do the work and attend classes that are a waste of time. I'm not sure if I'm going to continue my education or not. I can't spend the next 4 years in complete frustration.
