So far Kaplan has been a great school. The assignments are relevant and the reading syllabus is very easy to understand. The professors are very helpful and my advisors really care.

I went into this school very happy with my professors and the whole system. One of the problems is that classes are either super easy or way over your head. The professors are great for the most part but if you get a bad one, you are in big trouble. Filing a complaint is time consuming even though it is what I should have done instead of taking leaves of absence because I was working also and something had to give. The only thing that I have ended up with from my experience with Kaplan is a lot of stress, debt that I have to waste time and dispute and depression about getting screwed when I was trying to better myself.
