Complaint / review text:
I graduated with a Master's in Education at UoP. I had my good teachers and my not so good teachers. I had one that is probably the worst teacher I have had in my life. All in all, the education was good and I did have some challenging classes but I'm working on my doctorate degree at another university and this is why. I had one disorganized and flaky teacher for one of my early research classes. I wrote to the President, my AA, the school grievance board and not one of them contacted me. I could have taken my grade to the board and fought it but I had no faith I would get a fair hearing after the lack of response. I had a good GPA and the C this teacher gave me was not fair because she never graded a few of my papers. I think a lot of teachers go in alpha order and my last name begins with V and by the time they get to me, at least in this case, they have lost interest or they are tired.
Having said that, I took the C and I graduated with a good GPA even with the C. My advisor said I could fight the grade but I decided it was not worth the energy and vowed to get my EdD elsewhere. I had over a 3.0 GPA and to get into my program for my EdD I only needed a 3.0 GPA, so I have my degree and have moved on. I'm not bitter or unhappy with my education from UoP. I just can't recommend the school because of the lack of student support. Maybe, you could call me a survivor that graduated from the school of "Hard Knocks."
