Don't Come Here – Since I started the Respiratory Therapy Program at Kaplan about two years ago, I have been biding my time until I was finished. While my admissions advisor was nice and I had 2-3 teachers that I know I'll keep in contact with, everything else was just plain BAD. To start, the school kept someone in the program after they cheated on tests the first day of class (and every other afterwards). They didn't even care when it was brought to their attention that this person assaulted someone in an effort to get answers to a TAKE HOME test. Somehow, several people with extensive criminal records were not only allowed in the program, they were also allowed out on rotation where they were able to interact with patients! These people can't even get a job at McDonalds or vote! They also engaged in unethical/illegal grading practices to change one person's grade from an &quot;F&quot; to a &quot;D&quot; so they wouldn't be dropped from the program. This brought the people with an &quot;A&quot; down to a &quot;B&quot;. In addition, there is one specific person in the administration for the Respiratory Therapy program who everyone hates because she is consistently inaccessible, has absolutely no clue what she is doing, and will lie until she is blue in the face. After having a meeting with a student to discuss some more significant/troublesome issues that had been going on, the president of the school decided to hit the Staples &quot;Easy Button&quot; on his desk as the student was leaving! Pretty professional if you ask me. Another student was called a couple of hours after leaving a meeting with an administrator and was threatened to keep their mouth shut about what was discussed in the meeting or, &quot;all bets are off&quot;. If given the choice, I would NEVER go to this school again. The only reason that I did in the first place was that it was the only school in my area that offers the program I wanted.

One thing the school offers is the KCP pins. Not all students have to earn all 8 pins, but the more you have the better you look. Some special options for studying is being able to come in early before class and working in the computer lab. Also, the library is open for any student who wants to study in a quiet enviorment. All workers on campus, including the workers from career services, are always willing to help with any situation and willing to make you shine as a student. All professors are caring and always willingly to help an individual student when they need a little more help on a certain subject.

My experience has been an amazing one. Right from the enrollment process to my first day of class. My instructors are so great and so helpful when you need one on one help. While in school it is so amazing that they help you create a portfolio so you are prepared when looking for potential employers as well as being sent to job interviews by career services. College can feel individualized at times but never with this school. You always having an instructor when you need help who allows you to be hands on instead of just reading from a book.
