    Good school

    After reading all the negative reviews I felt obligated to write about my experience and how my degree has helped me. I completed my degree online and got a B.S. in Business.

    1) People are complaining about financial aid? At the end of the day it's your money, you should keep track of how the money is spent and you should deal with any issues that you see. Don't blame anyone other then yourself if you are overcharged or didn't manage your money correctly. Mistakes do happen and you need to review your finances to make sure everything is correct. Also, you know the price of classes before you enroll, so don't complain that its expensive. You signed the papers to enroll. Look in the mirror, and that's the person you should be mad at.

    2) People say they can't get a job with a UOP degree? Not trying to be rude, but it's probably YOU that can't get the job. Having a degree doesn't automatically get you a job. Going into an interview with a degree from a different college isn't going to have a different outcome of landing a job. No employer has ever said "Hey, we really like you and would love to hire you, but you have a degree from UOP so we're going to pass and hire someone else." Really?

    3) Is the degree accredited? Yes, I landed a Pharmaceutical Sales rep job with my degree. The questions during the interview were "Do you have a degree?" "What was your major?" Not once did they ask, what school was my degree from. One qualification was having a degree. I met that qualification.

    So everyone who is complaining about landing a job, go out and get some job experience if you don't have any. If you do have experience, then work on your interview skills or have your resume done by a professional. Those who say they can't land a job are those that are lacking a skill set. Having a degree from a different university isn't going to have a different outcome. If you don't get hired, it was YOU they didn't like, not the fact that you had a degree from UOP. And the degree is accredited. If it wasn't accredited, you wouldn't be able to apply to grad school at other universities.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
