"Too much busywork"
The price of WGU is great -- financial aid covers 90% of the cost, but the coursework is too hard at times. They make you write long papers on pointless subjects, the study aids are all over the place, and the graders are never on the same page as far as what they are looking for. The point of doing online studies is to handle everything online, so I'm not sure why they want so many 30 page essays. If we had time to write long essays, we'd be in regular college! Plus, you have to buy books, which I find pointless. They could easily write their own WGU Course eBooks with only the info you need for the course. A lot of things at WGU are just a pain in the neck, like the weekly calls and the webcam presentations. Useless!
