| When I was first on the Dean's list at Kaplan I thought okay they must pass everyone. When I started making friends through Kaplan I realized I was wrong. You get out of Kaplan what you put into it just like any other school. People cannot expect to come to Kaplan because it is online and get a degree- it is not a degree mill. I have had problems with Financial Aid but they have not screwed me over, just a lot of paper work. I also had to submit transcripts and take a math test before entering Kaplan. So some of the time I know it is about the money, but some of the professors it is not fair to say that about them as they are excellent. |

| I am a bachelor level student studying Psuchology. So far I have been attending Kaplan over a year now and am very satisfied with my intructors, and course work. They have tutoring for algebra and writing. My major compliant wwould have to be the acedemic advisors, and the financial aide advisors. You can never get ahold of your assigned advisors, and they have a wretcched nack for asking you to send the same darn paperwork each sememster over and over again.. Its darn annoying. |

| Years ago, we had real life experience that was valued. Then, the college education became more important. So, I went back to school at a State University, but I was doing so well in my career that I left. Now, years later, I am making more money than most with an education due to my years of demonstrated management experience. However, I wanted to finish my degree for my own goal. I looked at on-line classes and I was very worried about the degree being taken seriously. So, I met with the VP of our HR dept (one of the largest companies on the Globe) and I asked her if this would be looked down upon. She said, NO! As long as the school is accredited then its a valued education. |
I have been attending Kaplan for 2 years and I have worked very hard to get my degree. I transferred a number of credits from the State Univeristy, but I have learned a great deal about business and myself. Yes, I see people who dont put in any effort, but they get marked down. And I have been marked down for minor errors such as paper content, so I know they are grading fairly.
For me, this is about being a critical thinker and on-line works for my dedication and life. I think its harder to work on-line since you are on your own, but if you are a good at working on your own and sticking to structure, then on-line is right for you.
Also, lets face it, ALL schools are FOR PROFIT, they need the funding as they are a business that generates revenues and most Professors have a bell-curve. And on-line is a format that we use for everything in life. In fact, most major Universities are offering on-line classes because they want more students.
I will be going on for my Masters at a different on-line school because I want to expand my exposure.
The results we gain are based on the level of effort we put forth.
All the best...Joe T.
