Meh. $50 bucks an hour...what's that master's going to cost you, $1000 tops?
They know they've got the easiest, most convenient school....people will probably be willing to put their own cash down for that.
What is your free time worth?

Not a chance. Congress might look to crush the "university" for taking undue advantage of military TA but there's no way they will encourage the education system that is leading to what some people are now calling subprime educations. While I'm not generally a fan of the NY Times, here's an interesting article. http://www.nytimes.c...ion/11sat2.html

Embry has been charging $1000 per class for years. Guess TUI just figured out they could still beat Embry's ridiculous price and still make more money.
If you're a cheap fucker like me, you'll do the free degree from AU.

I am getting my degree from Liberty. Easy school. But the book voucher only applies to undergrad. So still have to pay for your books as Masters student. Im half way through and it doesn't cause me to use many brain bytes.

The Frau is getting her masters in School Psychology from Liberty and she doesn't have to put too many brain bytes to it; they do require "intensives" or basically a class in a week where you actually attend the campus in Lynchburg.

Time to get while the getting is good. Worthless "promote me" masters or something useful on the outside, you make the call.

I thought their business plan was fucking genius -- charge the service member absolutely nothing, have little "scholarship" programs that allow guys to keep taking classes even when they've maxed out TA for that year, make the classes super military-friendly (in many different ways), and rack up the big bucks from guys filling the squares for promotions.
By raising their tuition even $1, they've 86'd the biggest advantage they had. They're done.
